In partnership with the Department of Energy Southeast Clean Energy Application Center, the International District Energy Association (IDEA), a nonprofit trade association created to facilitate the exchange of information among district energy professionals, is hosting a free webinar on November 17, 2011 (1:000-2:00 pm EST). The webinar, entitled "District Energy and CHP - Valuable Infrastructure for Sustainable Communities", will provide insight into the emergence of district energy in North America and will include two case studies that highlight its' success. Speakers will include Robert Thornton, President and CEO of the IDEA, Ray DuBose, Director, Energy Services at UNC-Chapel Hill and Harry Ragsdale, President, Thermal Engineering Group, Inc.

The EPA has provided guidance to facilities that may be subject to the mandatory Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting Rule, which covers GHG emissions from stationary fuel combustion and other sources. Facilities that generate greater than 25,000 mt CO2 from stationary combustion sources are covered by the program and are required to register by August 1, 2011. The reporting of 2010 greenhouse gas emissions is due by September 30, 2011.

Have you been considering steam system improvements in your plant, but do not know where to begin? Do you want to potentially save 10% or more in fuel costs, while reducing emissions?

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Industrial Technologies Program can help answer those questions for you and has developed the Steam System Scoping Tool (SSST) for energy coordinators, facility managers and plant electricians to help evaluate your steam system's performance. The software (available in MS Excel or Visual Basic formats) asks 26 questions about different areas of your steam system including system profiling, steam system operating practices, boiler plant operating practices, and distribution and recovery operation practices. Based on your responses, the software will indicate opportunities for improvements and will suggest a range of ways to save steam energy and boost productivity. It also compares your system against similar facilities in your industry and identifies best practices.

According to the DOE, six DOE Industrial Assessment Centers used the SSST in 2001 to assess steam systems at 18 small and medium-sized facilities. Overall, the software identified 89 system improvements with an average fuel savings of 12.5%. Collectively, the total improvements yielded a total annual savings of $2.8 million.
