Cogeneration (also combined heat and power or CHP) is the use of a heat engine or a power station to simultaneously generate both electricity and useful heat.

Conventional power plants emit the heat created as a byproduct of electricity generation into the environment through cooling towers, as flue gas, or by other means. CHP captures the byproduct heat for domestic or industrial heating purposes, either very close to the plant, or - especially in Scandinavia and eastern Europe - for distribution through pipes to heat local housing (district heating). Byproduct heat at moderate temperatures (100 to 180°C) can also be used in absorption chillers for cooling, that is production of "cold". A plant producing electricity, heat and cold is sometimes called trigeneration or more generally: polygeneration plant.

Cogeneration is thermodynamically the most efficient use of fuel. In separate production of electricity some energy must be rejected as waste heat, whereas in separate production of heat the potential for production of high quality energy (electricity or work) is lost (see exergy).
