HSI prioritizes energy efficiency and community resiliency through Cogeneration
HSI's largest project, Kenmore Hall, received financing from NYCEEC to install a cogeneration system that would provide resiliency benefits, including electric power during a grid failure.
This new system ensures that the building is better equipped to handle future events like Superstorm Sandy, providing a safer and more secure home for vulnerable communities. Operation of the highly-efficient system is also expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions versus procuring 100% of the building’s energy needs through the grid.
