On Wednesday, July 22, the EPA CHP Partnership (CHPP) and the CHP Association (CHPA) will co-host a webinar about the LEED® point impact CHP can have on buildings seeking LEED® certification.
CHP, also known as cogeneration, has a long record of providing buildings with reliable electricity, steam, hot water, and cooling with lower cost and emissions than grid-supplied electricity and an on-site boiler. New modular CHP units, absorption chiller improvements, and 3rd party ownership models have also made CHP more viable for a wider array of applications. And, because of its superior energy efficiency and lower energy cost, CHP can earn buildings seeking LEED® certification significant LEED® points.
This webinar will highlight:
• The significant LEED® point impact CHP can have on buildings seeking LEED® certification
• How CHP is accounted for in the LEED® for Building Design and Construction: New Construction and Major Renovations rating system (LEED® BD+C: New Construction).
• The contribution of modern absorption chillers to efficient building design and a building’s LEED® score
• Case studies of successful CHP systems that helped buildings meet LEED® certification goals
• Gary McNeil, EPA CHP Partnership
• Charlie Goff, Eastern Research Group
• Doug Davis, BROAD U.S.A.
• Diane Molokotos, Aegis Energy Services
• Jeff Beiter, Capstone Distributor, E-Finity Distributed Generation
