What are Integrated Energy Systems?

An Integrated Energy System, or "IES" integrates a CHP system with thermally-activated power and energy technologies for heating and cooling.

Integrated Energy System are more commonly referred to as "Trigeneration" plants and include the following;

Integrated Energy Systems are also at the center of every District Energy System.

Clean Power Generation Solutions

Our "Integrated" CHP Systems (Cogeneration and Trigeneration) Plants
Have Very High Efficiencies, Low Fuel Costs & Low Emissions

The CHP System below is Rated at 900 kW and Features:
(2) Natural Gas Engines @ 450 kW each on one Skid with Optional
Selective Catalytic Reduction
system that removes Nitrogen Oxides to "non-detect."

The Effective Heat Rate of the CHP System below is
4100 btu/kW with a Net System Efficiency of 92%.

A CHP System may be the best solution for your company's economic and environmental sustainability as we "upgrade" natural gas to clean power with our clean power generation solutions. Our Emissions Abatement solutions reduce Nitrogen Oxides to "non-detect" which means our Trigeneration energy systems can be installed and operated in most EPA non-attainment regions!

Our CHP Systems - (operating in either natural gas fueled cogeneration or trigeneration --- or --- solar cogeneration or solar trigeneration configuration) may be the optimum power and energy solution for customers wanting increased power reliability and decreased energy and environmental costs. A few of the clients and markets that may benefit from our CHP Systems include the following:

For qualified clients we will design, build, finance, own, operate and maintain a new:

Clean Power Generation


Organic Rankine Cycle


Waste Heat Recovery

energy system, through a Power Purchase Agreement that guarantees
a minimum 10% reduction in our client's energy expenses.

(NOTE: Our engineering and EPC services may be provided by one of our affiliated
companies - one of which is a Top ENR ranked EPC company.

What is "Net Zero Energy?"

Net Zero Energy - when applied to a home or commercial building, simply means that they generate as much power and energy as they consume, when measured on an annual basis.

The U.S. Army now has a Net Zero Energy initiative to help reduce/eliminate America's use of foreign oil  - particularly oil from muslim/middle-east countries - which saves the lives of our brave soldiers in the military.

Why "Net Zero Energy Matters

Americans spend more than $400 billion every year for electricity and natural gas for our homes and commercial buildings, consuming more than 70% of all the  electricity used in the United States, which is about 40% of our nation's total energy bill. This also contributes almost 40% of the nation's carbon dioxide emissions.

By standardizing on Net Zero Energy and upgrading existing commercial buildings to Net Zero Energy, the USA increases energy efficiency and reduces the purchases of energy from all sources, both foreign and domestic.

Net Zero Energy Protects your Financial Health

The average family spends $2,200 each year on the power and energy needed for their homes. A Net Zero Energy home can reduce this amount by 80% to 100%.

Net Zero Energy Protects your Health and the Environment

Did you know that buildings (homes and commercial buildings) are responsible for: 

These harmful emissions are generated from the combustion of fossil fuels, which cause acid rain, haze, smog and cause breathing/respiratory problems for thousands of people. By increasing the energy efficiency of our country's homes and commercial buildings, we reduce these harmful emissions while reducing our monthly utility and transportation expenses. Imagine, never again receiving a monthly bill from your electric power or natural gas utility company!  Having a Net Zero Energy home or business can do that, or provide the option to "cut the cord" to the electric company in the future. 

Every new Net Zero Energy home or commercial building helps our country reduce (energy-related) greenhouse gas emissions. There is a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels of 17% by 2020.

Net Zero Energy Protects America's Economy and Leads to Energy Independence

The USA is still dependent on foreign oil.  Each day, the USA shifts the wealth of Americans, to foreign countries and foreign jobs.  With oil at $100/bbl, Americans send about $1.3 billion for the foreign oil we buy which adds up to almost $1/2 trillion every year. And that's also costing America thousands of jobs.
Net Zero Energy will help America become energy independent, create thousands of jobs in the USA and reduce our dependence on foreign oil from insecure sources and from countries that do not agree with our country's leadership or policies.

Building (and upgrading) homes and commercial buildings to Net Zero Energy with less reduces the problems relating to an old, inefficient electric power grid. Increased Net Zero Energy homes and commercial buildings also saves the need for building new central power plants running on fossil fuels, that are still highly inefficient at no more than 50% efficient. 

What does a Net Zero Energy home or building look like?

Net Zero Energy homes and commercial buildings can look like any other residential home, hospital, school or commercial office building, they do NOT have to be ugly or modern in appearance to be Net Zero Energy

And, your present home or commercial building can be updated to Net Zero Energy.








What is a "Solar Cogeneration" energy system?

A Solar Cogeneration (or simply "Solar CHP") energy system combines a: 

1.  Rooftop PV solar panels 


2. Solar thermal collectors - which can be one of several types, i.e. flat plate collectors or evacuated tube collectors which generate hot water anywhere from 110 - 120 degrees F. to 170 degrees F. (and higher) depending on the collector type, for the best of both worlds (solar power plus solar thermal).

Solar Cogeneration energy systems provides a significantly higher return on investment, along with higher overall system efficiencies.

Solar PV power generators with 40%+ efficiency which generate DC electric power in the 500Wp to 30kWp per single unit, with Solar Thermal Power Generators with 20%+ efficiency, which simultaneously generate hot water up to 1650 F at 1.0 to 20.0 gpm per unit. The combination PV electricity -- hot water generation converts over 65% of the sunlight falling onto the systems into useful electricity and hot water.

Solar Cogeneration = Solar PV + Solar Thermal

Efficient solar power (PV and thermal) conversion system could replace the natural gas and/or electricity used by our customers for heating, and in their day-to-day energy demanding commercial operations.

Solar Cogeneration is a Cost-Effective Solution for Commercial Enterprises including:

Restaurants, Laundromats, Car Wash Stations, Canning and Food Processing Plants, Health Clubs, Large Office Buildings, Semiconductor Fabs, Hospitals, Hotels, Universities/dormitories, Apartments and Nursing Homes.

Solar Cogeneration systems can be installed in new as well as existing facilities and will soon be the accepted standard for commercial customers requiring energy, and located in sunny areas and electric rates are greater than $0.12/kWh. Solar Cogeneration systems will also play a significant role in new "Net Zero Energy" buildings as well as upgrading existing commercial buildings where emissions abatement (reductions of nitrogen oxides, greenhouse gas emissions, etc.) opportunities exist along with incentives.

What is a "Solar Trigeneration" energy system?

A Solar Trigeneration energy system combines a: 

1.  Solar Electric Power System  with a 

2. Solar Water Heating System (which generates hot water with either solar thermal collectors or evacuated tube collectors)

and takes a Solar Cogeneration energy system one further step by adding and integrating either;

3.  Absorption Chillers or Adsorption Chillers, which receives some of the hot water from the Solar Water Heating System and provides the energy needed to make 38 degree chilled water for air-conditioning. 

We install our Solar Trigenerationsm Energy Systems, for qualified commercial businesses, as well as  cities, schools and government facilities with our Zero Up-front Cost program.

For some customers - based on their present location, utility company and electric rate - we are able to reduce their electric rate by 10%. Even more for other customers.  Solar Trigenerationsm Energy System!
