The term "combined heat and power" (CHP) stands for all those processes in which an energy conversion plant simultaneously generates power and heat from the supplied energies and delivers them to consumers. This standard clarifies which plants, systems and system technologies are included in the field of cogeneration. It addresses the different types of CHP applications and closes a number of definitional gaps that have so far led to misunderstandings, even in technical discussions. This standard is addressed to planners and operators of energy technology plants, monitoring authorities and institutes as well as scientists working in this field.
