•A trigeneration system for heating, cooling and electricity is examined and optimized.•The system includes solar collector, ORC and absorption heat pump.•This system is analyzed parametrically and it is optimized exergetically.•Eight different working fluid are tested in the Organic Rankine Cycle.•Toluene is the best working fluid with 29.42% exergetic efficiency.
