Cogeneration Utilizing Natural Gas-fired Reciprocating Engines

Cogeneration systems, also known as combined heat and power, have traditionally been installed by larger industrial users with high steam and power demands and by smaller, institutional users such as universities and hospitals. Since the early 2000s, smaller industrial and commercial companies have discovered cogeneration utilizing natural gas-fired reciprocating engines,

The common denominator among those employing energy management approaches is rising energy costs, points out Damian Smith, president/chief engineer for Total Energy Concepts. “It’s a hot topic as far as financials go, because it’s a direct expense that affects the bottom line,” he says. “When your costs go up on

Pumps Operations in the Building Envelope

Pumps Operations in the Building Envelope

Water flows downhill. Nothing could be more simple. Getting water to the top floor of an urban skyscraper is a bit more difficult. Mere gravity flow or even accumulated static pressure head aren’t sufficient to accomplish this task. Pumps are obviously needed. But what kinds of pumps are used in

Energy Audits: The Missing Value

Energy Audits: The Missing Value

It is estimated by the US Department of Energy (DOE) that 30% of energy used in commercial buildings is wasted. While unnecessary power consumption represents one aspect of wasted energy, inefficient use represents another. To optimize energy use, buildings have historically used Building Automation Systems (BAS) or Building Management Systems
