EPA honors three universities for energy savings

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is recognizing three universities with the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) awards for generating power and thermal energy while saving energy, lowering greenhouse gas emissions and decreasing air pollution… The University of Missouri-Columbia, University of California, San Diego, and Fairfield University CHP systems are reaching operating efficiencies ranging from 55% to 75% compared to conventional fossil-fueled power plants, which are only about 30% efficient.
