Modelling of a complex district heating system by increasing the energy system's efficiency and by reducing emissions through the implementation of new and low carbon technologies is presented. One of these technologies is cogeneration which is used to increase energy efficiency and to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Presented model uses linear programming as a basis for mathematical modelling of the energy system. The mathematical calculation is set pragmatically, so it can be efficiently and

The model analyses the effects of integration of cogeneration into the existing energy system using a given goal function. The basic criterion is set to be the reduction of environmental impact. The model is successfully tested on the complex district heating system with the power of about 600 MW.
