The Northeast Clean Energy Application Center will serve to identify and promote the use of viable CHP technologies and systems in applications where they can increase energy efficiencies, reduce operating costs, reduce electrical loads on the utility electrical grid in areas where it is taxed, and shave peak load demands from the grid. The Application Center will serve to bring together manufacturers, utilities, building operators, research and development organizations, industry associations, energy service companies, architects and engineers, and national laboratory personnel to promote on-site and near-site power generation, energy recovery, and energy management and utilization for commercial, institutional, multi-family and community based buildings.
The Northeast Clean Energy Application Center has been established to expedite the successful deployment of viable CHP technologies by providing:
The long-term vision of the Center is that by the year 2020, CHP for Buildings will be the preferred method of energy utilization in commercial and institutional buildings.
