    Cogeneration power plants are the most efficient power plants.  When regular plants just focus on producing electricity, they spend a lot of resources and energy cooling down the process that makes that electricity.  Cogeneration plants combine the electricity with the heat and produce them together.  Overall, this gives an efficiency of about 80% compared to the 30% of most regular power plants.  However, the allure of cogeneration poewr plants is cut down by regular utility companies attacking them for fear of ruining their profits.  Most cogeneration plants are used for individual purposes like universities.
