Mission and objectives

COGEN Europe is the European Association for the Promotion of Cogeneration. Its principal goal is to work towards the wider use of cogeneration in Europe for a sustainable energy future.

Cogeneration is the most efficient way to deliver heating, cooling and electricity. It is based on the simultaneous production of electricity and thermal energy, both of which are used. The central and most fundamental principle of cogeneration is that, in order to maximise the many benefits that arise from it, systems should be based on the heat demand of the application.

COGEN Europe promotes the widespread development of cogeneration in Europe and worldwide. To achieve this goal, COGEN Europe works at the EU level and with member states to develop sustainable energy policies and remove unnecessary barriers to implementation.
