District Energy Project to Link Five Buildings on a Common Hot Water Loop
March 1, 2012
Phase one connects 5 buildings on a common hot water loop and includes the installation of highly efficient condensing boilers with the capacity of 5 million BTUH. It also includes the installation of a solar thermal system.
Phase two will expand the heating system to other buildings on campus allowing older inefficient boilers to be decommissioned thus reducing the University’s energy costs even further.
“When designing this system we considered the University’s current and future hot water needs and determined that breaking the project into phases would allow for savings immediately and for subsequent savings in the future as the demand for hot water increased. Additionally, we designed the system to accommodate solar thermal cogeneration should the University require even greater capacity,” said Lucas Hyman, President of GEI.
