About This Item


Full Description

Cogeneration is the simultaneous production of electrical or mechanical energy (power) and useful thermal energy from a single energy stream. Essentially, the same fuel works "twice," achieving high thermal efficiencies. Cogeneration economics are good when the system can fully use available electrical and thermal energies from the system. Resulting high thermal efficiencies translate into lower fuel costs and help achieve higher return on investment.
