Cogeneration is the simultaneous production of two or more sources of energy. The most common example of cogeneration is the simultaneous generation of electricity and useful heat. In this case, a fuel like natural gas can be burned in a boiler to produce steam. The steam drives an electric generator and is recaptured for such purposes as heating or manufacturing. Cogeneration is most effective when the cogeneration facility is near the site where excess heat can be used.
