REBNY Distributed Generation and Combined Heat and Power Systems: Going Green and Saving Green (6/28/11)
Is it the right choice for your building?

Combined Heat and Power systems (CHP) are proven cost and carbon efficient systems which  make use of the waste heat output of a typical generator in order to provide heat and hot water to a building. Systems vary in size and provide significant monetary savings to a building, along with reducing its carbon emissions. The pending phase-out of #6 oil makes now a unique opportunity for buildings who want to install CHP systems.

In this seminar, experts from New York City’s Department of Buildings, the Pace Energy and Climate Center, Con Edison, and Robert Germain PC will discuss everything a building owner or property manager should know about combined heat and power systems.  See if your building is right for CHP and if so, how to install a system in your building.
