The technology of combined heat and power generation on renewable energy (CHP-RE) is of positive significance for energy saving, environment improving and green economy. Solar energy, geothermal energy and biomass energy are the most potential renewable energies for large scale CHP. This paper introduced the CHP-RE development at home and abroad, and compared several main CHP-RE technologies. The CHP on geothermal energy is mature, while the CHP on solar energy, which can be used widely, is still in the stage of project demonstration and technology development. The photovoltaic-thermoelectric CHP, based on the comprehensive utilization of solar spectrum, will be the next hot topic in future. The CHP-RE cannot be promoted without smart grid. The sustainable community will lay the foundation for large scale utilization of CHP-RE, in which the needs of local energy are satisfied first and excess electricity can be sold to smart grid.
