Excerpt:

Combined heat and power (CHP), or co-generation, is the simultaneous generation of usable heat and electricity.
Conventional power plants usually dissipate the heat generation using cooling towers. With CHP it is used for domestic or industrial space heating or for process heat. Tri-generation also includes cooling using an absorption chiller.
