Apr. 30 /CSRwire/ - DANBURY, Connecticut - WHAT: Onsite power could be the key to developing energy efficient, highly secure and environmentally responsible buildings.

Onsite power, also known as distributed generation, is the process of generating electricity directly at a power user's facility with devices like gas reciprocating engines, turbines and fuel cells. It represents a dramatic new way for builders and designers to eliminate their reliance on the utility grid and use power more efficiently. It also offers increased security for energy-dependent businesses; there is no reliance on a centralized generation and transmission system.

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
