  • USA : NY State Program Actively Supports Clean Energy Combined Heat & Power (CHP), Generating Energy On-Site
    September 19, 2014
    2G CENERGY®, Florida-based manufacturer of high-efficiency low emission CHP Cogeneration systems, announced that the New York State Energy Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) has recently approved 2G®'s advanced technology for a state wide CHP incentive program.

    The Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Acceleration Program in the State of New York provides incentives for the installation of pre-qualified CHP systems by approved CHP system vendors in the size range 50kW to 1.3MW.

    A NYSERDA-commissioned study published by the New York State Energy Research Development Authority found there to be a technical potential for approximately 8,500 MW of new CHP systems in NY State spread across roughly 26,000 sites. "Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology fueled by natural gas is very attractive to owners of factories, production plants, commercial, institutional and municipal buildings.", said Michael Turwitt, 2G CENERGY® President & CEO. "NYSERDA's program has now made it possible for energy consumers to utilize smart cogeneration technologies without any risk", he added.

  • USA : Biogas Cogeneration Powers Oldest US Brewery
    September 16, 2014
    In a move to save energy and improve the efficiency of its beer-making process, the oldest brewery in the US has installed a biogas cogeneration plant.

    The Yuengling brewery in the state of Pennsylvania now has a 400 kW combined heat and power (CHP) plant which covers 20% of its power needs. The CHP system from 2G Cenergy includes an anaerobic digester designed by EMG (Environmental Management Group International), as well as a gas treatment system to dehumidify the saturated gas and remove H2S from the raw biogas. The system has been designed as a dual-fuel module and can be operated on low-BTU biogas, as well as pipeline quality natural gas.

  • Australia : Call for Renewables Policy Continuation As Australian Businesses Turn to Solar
    September 12, 2014
    More than 15,000 Australian businesses have now installed on-site solar power to reduce their energy bills, according to the country's Clean Energy Council (CEC).

    Kane Thornton, CEC acting chief executive, said: 'Businesses have now invested almost A$460 million (US$416 million) in solar power systems across the country, helping them to collectively save about A$64 million on their bills every year,' 'There is an increasing recognition that the current modest support provided by the RET means the business case for solar power makes sense, helping businesses become more competitive in tough economic conditions,' Thorton continued, arguing that if the federal government decided to cut the RET following its current review of the policy, it would make it much harder for homes and businesses to go solar.
