LARGO, Fla. - PowerCold Corp. has been selected by the Department of Energy (DOE) for a unique distributed energy systems application integration.

Gas Technology Institute (GTI), Preventive Maintenance Services Inc. (PMSI), Southwest Gas, and Nevada Power will be participating in a comprehensive program designed to test, verify, and demonstrate integrated energy-efficient technologies with a combined heat and power (CHP) system at a new Wingate Inn and Suites Hotel in Henderson, Nev. The DOE is granting the funding for the CHP project. The facility is expected to be one of the most energy-efficient hotels ever built in the United States.

This is the third new Wingate Inn Hotel to utilize PowerCold's patented HVAC system. The Wingate is a three-story hospitality center that features a 100-room hotel, meeting rooms, restaurant, indoor swimming pool, and hot tub. The hotel will utilize PowerCold's patented four pipe HVAC system and a 150-kWh combined heat and power plant to supply space heating, hot water, cooling, and electrical power to the facility.

"The Henderson Wingate Inn and Suites demonstrates a renewed commitment to sustainable design and signals a fundamental shift away from conventional design and construction," said Wingate owner Steve Sparks.

"Owners who incorporate these integrated energy systems into their new hotel designs will have a competitive advantage and will benefit from higher performance facilities that not only provide superior guest comfort but also conserve energy and reduce operating costs and risks."
