Combined heat and power plants produce both heat and electric power.

Heat is generally a by-product of most electricity generation processes.

Conventional electric power plants tend to waste most or all of this heat.

Combined heat and power plants capture this heat, and supply it to an appropriately matched local heat demand.

Combined heat and power generation is sometimes known as cogeneration.
