District Energy Association’s 106th Annual Conference and Trade Show

CHP- AWARDS-EPA

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is recognizing three facilities with the Energy Star Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Award for superior performance of their CHP systems. High-efficiency CHP technology reduces emissions of carbon dioxide and other air pollutants. CHP captures the heat produced when electricity is generated and utilizes that heat—which would otherwise be wasted—to efficiently provide space heating, cooling, hot water, and steam for commercial, institutional and industrial use.

These three 2015 award winners demonstrate how CHP can partner with district energy systems to reduce pollutant emissions from electricity generation. District energy systems produce steam, hot water and chilled water at a central plant, which are piped underground to individual buildings for space heating, hot water heating and air conditioning.

The CHP Awards were presented today to the following facilities at the International District Energy Association’s 106th Annual Conference and Trade Show in Boston, Mass.:

· Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine
· Pepco Energy Systems, Atlantic City, N.J.
· Thermal Energy Corporation (TECO), Houston, Texas
