University Recognized by EPA, NWF

The University of Maryland, College Park is being recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Wildlife Federation for environmental achievements, including a new cogeneration system that will reduce the University's energy consumption by more than 30 percent. This system is the Center for Enviornmental Energy Engineering (CEEE) Integrated Energy Systems Test Center, designed as a research facility that explores the intricacies of integrating advanced power generating equipment, such as microturbines and fuel cells, with waste heat activated technologies such as absorption chillers and desiccant systems. It is housed at the Chesapeake Building, which currently has two CHP systems installed, and is a fully instrumented platform for conducting research on advanced energy efficient and environmentally friendly building technology.
