DANBURY, Connecticut - WHAT: Onsite power could be the key to developing energy efficient, highly secure and environmentally responsible buildings.
From an environmental perspective, distributed generation eliminates the reliance on large, coal-fired power plants and alleviates the need to build new transmission lines. It also can incorporate "combined heat and power," a clean and reliable alternative to conventional
electricity that utilizes the heat normally lost during power generation to provide heating, air conditioning, steam, hot water and cooled water.
WHO: Whit Allen, vice president of Sure Power Corp. (www.surepowersystem.com), a company that specializes in providing high-reliability energy to businesses worldwide, will detail the
benefits of onsite power during a workshop at Earth Day New York's "Rethinking the Built Environment" conference (www.earthdayny.org).
A Sure Power system at the First National Bank of Omaha, the nation's seventh largest credit card transaction processor and largest privately owned bank uses a highly engineered configuration of fuel cells to supply the bank's 200,000-square-foot technology center with a constant flow of computer-grade power, independently of the utility grid.
Other event participants include: the U.S. Department of Energy; New York State Energy Research and Development Authority; New York Power Authority; KeySpan Energy Delivery; Con Edison; The Durst Organization; Forest Electric Corp.; Tishman Realty & Construction; and the New York Building Congress, among others.
WHEN/WHERE: Wed., May 1, 3:30 p.m., Earth Day New York's "Rethinking the Built Environment" conference, City University of New York, Fifth Avenue and 34th Street
