American DG Energy Recognized by US EPA for Emissions Reductions


American DG Energy Inc, a leading On-Site Utility offering clean electricity, heat, hot water and cooling to hospitality, healthcare, housing and athletic facilities, was recognized by the US EPA Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Partnership for the emissions reductions of the Company's CHP projects.

"Combined heat and power is an efficient, clean, and reliable approach to generating power and thermal energy from a single fuel source," says Robert Meyers, principal deputy assistant administrator for EPA's Office of Air and Radiation. "By installing a CHP system designed to meet the thermal and electrical demands of a facility, American DG has helped many of their customers increase their facilities' operational efficiency and decrease their energy costs."

"We have always been staunch supporters of energy efficiency," stated John Hatsopoulos, CEO of American DG Energy. "Our CHP technology offers true carbon reduction and we are pleased to be recognized by the US EPA."

American DG Energy, a member of the CHP Partnership, was presented with a report by the EPA which states that the high efficiency of the Company's CHP projects produced an estimated 7,400 metric tons of carbon equivalents less than typical separate heat and power, resulting in emissions reductions equivalent to planting 2,006 acres of forest or removing the emissions of 1,337 automobiles.
