Combined heat and power (CHP) is the simultaneous production of electricity and heat but with the recovery and utilization of the heat. It is also known as “cogeneration”.
In most applications today heat and power are generated separately resulting in high fuel consumption and higher greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Cogeneration is a highly efficient form of energy conversion and it can achieve energy (fuel and electricity) savings of 40% or more when compared to the separate purchase of electricity from a local electrical utility and using a natural gas boiler for onsite heating.
