Hilton Hotel Commissions Combined Heat and Power Plant

by | Apr 16, 2014


Greenwood Energy, the North American renewable energy division of the Libra Group, installed a 500 kW combined heat and power (CHP) plant at the Millennium Hilton Hotel in Lower Manhattan. This is the first CHP plant Greenwood has developed for Millennium Hotel and Resorts in New York City, and Greenwood is currently developing an  additional plant  at  the Millennium Broadway Hotel in Times Square.

The  Millennium Hilton CHP plant features two 250 kW natural gas-fired cogeneration units to provide baseload electricity, hot water, and chilled water for the hotel’s 569 guest rooms and suites. This system is projected to lower energy costs while increasing reliability.

Greenwood says its mission is to deploy distributed generation plants across North America. Its approach combined site analysis, technical evaluation, project design and financing to develop the system with  no  upfront capital expenditures for Millennium. Incentives from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) also helped bring the project from concept to reality.

The  New  York  City  Energy  Efficiency  Corporation  (NYCEEC)  is  providing  debt  financing  to Greenwood  Energy  for  both  CHP  projects.
