Profile
Austin Energy has implemented the first fuel cell in Texas connected to the utility grid. This fuel cell is a CHP application that produces 200 kW of clean power, as well as thermal energy for the buildings' HVAC and hot water systems. Austin Energy is also in the process of reviewing the feasibility of a joint DOE-sponsored cogeneration project at the Domain Business Park. This project would involve a 5 MW onsite turbine and a 2,500-ton absorption chiller. Austin Energy is committed to development of CHP in central Texas by installing more distributed generation that uses waste heat for absorption cooling. Austin Energy believes thermally activated technologies will help the U.S. become more energy independent while cleaning the environment.
