Monday, Jan. 23, 2012: Tecogen Displays Low-Emissions Cogeneration System

January 23, 2012
Tecogen InVerdeCHICAGO — Tecogen Inc. is highlighting its InVerde Ultra 100, a low-emissions, natural gas engine-driven cogeneration system. Designed for commercial and industrial facilities, the company says the InVerde Ultra 100 will meet and even exceed the strictest California emission standards, making it a preferred clean energy solution for today’s heating and power needs, the company says.

According to Tecogen, the InVerde Ultra 100 is UL171-certified and delivers scalable distributed power generation. A built-in black-start capability ensures grid independence, and its simple interface makes it easy to install even in multiple units. It is internationally adaptable (50/60 Hz) via software change. Unlike conventionally powered combined heat and power products, which require batteries and supervisory controls when implemented in a micro-grid, the InVerde Ultra 100 micro-grid operation combines a small footprint with plug-and-play, utility-friendly operation, states the company.

Tecogen’s research and development was supported by the California Energy Commission (CEC) and Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas).
