The Challenge

Upgrade an aging system to protect against outages, have demand response capabilities, reduce carbon footprint, and drive down costs

The Solution

Develop, finance, construct, own, and operate a microgrid that combines sustainable combined heat and power (CHP) with on-site solar generation and thermal storage to serve their entire healthcare campus

The Result

Penn Medicine Princeton now has a sustainable, highly efficient, and reliable system that produces:

106,000 pounds of steam per hour

4,400 tons of cooling

4.5 MW of CHP

203 kW of on-site solar generation

7.5 MW of emergency power

30,000 tons/hour thermal ice storage

3x the emergency power their diesel-fueled system provided
