Everyone is invited to the CWC Launch Event on May 10th!

The Official Launch Event of the COGEN World Coalition will take place on Tuesday, 10 May 2022, at 2:00pm Brussels time (8:00am in Washington D.C. / 9:00pm in Tokyo).  This unique event will bring together leaders of the cogeneration sector from around the world. The purpose of the event is to present the vision of the COGEN World Coalition and to highlight the benefits of cogeneration (also known as Combined Heat & Power or CHP). Registration is FREE and everyone is welcome to attend!

The COGEN World Coalition (CWC) was established last year as an international non-profit association and currently we have 20 members including 10 manufacturing companies and 10 national or regional associations.

The purpose of the CWC is to provide a global forum for leaders and specialists representing all aspects of the cogeneration sector and to represent the interests of the sector in discussions on energy and related issues. In particular, we aim to raise awareness of cogeneration technologies and their benefits for society in terms of energy efficiency, system resilience, integrating renewables and reducing emissions.
