AUSTIN, Texas - The Department of Energy (DOE) recently held a dedication ceremony for a new cooling-heating-power (CHP) facility. CHP is a form of distributed energy that recycles waste heat produced in electrical generation. The dedication took place June 14 at an Austin energy facility. "This new facility will be 40 to 50 percent more efficient than conventional electricity production in how it uses fossil fuels to generate power and thermal energy," said Ed Mardiat, director of CHP development for Burns & McDonnell, the prime design-build contractor. According to Mardiat, "We are currently evaluating a variety of facilities at hospitals, university and college campuses, airports, and large corporate or government office complexes to install similar packaged CHP systems."
