Pasadena-based Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced today that the Jacobs designed cogeneration plant at Texas A&M University was recognized with a 2013 Energy Star Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Award by the U.S.

Duane Tilden‘s insight:

>Jacobs provided full-service design of the plant, including CHP and electrical system design, construction administration, and commissioning, according to a news statement.

 

The system requires one-third less fuel than a typical off-campus power plant with similar output, prevents emissions of air pollutants, generates up to 45 megawatts of electricity, and serves the district energy system by supplying steam and chilled water for space cooling, heating, and hot water for the 5,000-acre campus in College Station, Texas.<
