Cogeneration Solutions

The concept of combined heat and power or cogeneration is simple: Why use 3 fuels when you can use one? Combined cooling, heat and power is the simultaneous production of electrical and thermal energy from a single fuel source.

Cogeneration is not an energy source itself, but rather more of an energy multiplier, squeezing more usable energy out of each unit of fuel most everywhere it is applied.
