This chapter presents the regulatory and legal framework of cogeneration. It is known that the first commercial combined heat and power (CHP) unit started its operation in 1882, in New York, United States, producing both electrical and thermal energy using waste heat, in order to heat nearby buildings, operating in a nonregulatory environment. But in the late 1800s, new regulations were enacted in the United States of America to promote rural electrification, by constructing centralised power plants, which discouraged decentralised ones, like those for cogeneration.
