Discover Cogeneration

Also known as Combined Heat and Power (CHP), cogeneration is the simultaneous production of useful heat and electricity from a single energy source. A cogeneration plant is much more efficient than a conventional power plant since the heat produced during electricity generation is captured and not wasted. This heat is used for heating and hot water in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Cogeneration means less energy waste, less emissions and lower bills.
