This report assesses the potential for cogeneration system development based on an analysis of the economic, environmental, energy efficiency and social aspects of such systems. The cogeneration system is an application of the principle of cogeneration in which utility-sized power plants supply both electrical and steam needs to one or more nearby industries. Such a system can result in increased energy efficiency reduced pollutants, and reduced overall cost. A number of methodological approaches, including environmental impact analysis, were used to investigate the broad scope of issues relevant to cogeneration system development. As the study considered the subject from a general, comprehensive, planning-level perspective, the quantitative results cannot be applied to other sites. However, trends associated with the impacts of cogeneration development are identified, and methodologies which are applicable to cogeneration systems in general are employed.
