Cogeneration, also known as combined heat and power (CHP), is the process where a single fuel source is used to produce both electrical and thermal energy.  Generating electricity usually results in unused heat, so using equipment to capture that heat and transfer it for other functions within the same facility or a facility nearby, results in greater efficiency and cost savings for the end user.

“A refinery is a great example of a large industrial process that needs electricity and heat at the same time,” said Chris Vilcsak, President and CEO of Solution 105.
