Colombian Building Goes Off Grid
May 23 2013
Colombian Chamber of Infrastructure (CCI) office building first in South America to deploy trigeneration. To control energy costs and reduce environmental impact, CCI in Bogotá installed two Capstone C800 Power Packages in a combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) application in 2010. The microturbines allow the 10-story building, which houses some of Colombia’s most important infrastructure-related companies, to completely disconnect from the high-cost and unreliable grid. Since installation of the two Capstone microturbines, CCI has not experienced any power outages.
Completely supporting CCI’s energy demand, the Power Packages generate kilowatts of clean-and-green reliable power from the building’s rooftop, while low-emission exhaust heat is converted and pumped through the building’s air conditioning system.
