This book contains papers presented at an EEC seminar held in Madrid, Spain, in October 1989. The European Energy Policy objectives for the year 1995 call for adequate energy supplies, controlled energy prices and increased environmental concern. These objectives can be attained either by energy saving or increased energy efficiency, or through the development of new technologies to augment both saving and efficiency. Cogeneration is the process of generating electricity with synchronous utilisation of the useful heat wastes produced. Thus the overall efficiency is increased, the consumption of primary energy is lowered and the sequential pollutant emissions are eliminated. This book discusses new methods of financing, appropriate legislative action and the technological progress necessary for the successful expansion of applications of cogeneration.
