The Architect of the Capitol (AOC) is responsible for the district energy system that provides utilities to the US Capitol, Capitol Hill, plus a few neighboring facilities. After a rigorous analysis of potential energy technologies, AOC determined that cogeneration was the best way to reduce utility costs, increase energy efficiency, reduce environmental impacts and increase resiliency of the district energy utilities. In October 2015, the AOC proceeded with a public-private partnership with Washington Gas (assisted by Burns & McDonnell) to design-build a 7.5 MW CHP facility at the Capitol Power Plant (CPP). The CPP Cogeneration Project construction will be completed in 2018. The project team will share best practices and lessons learned from this important project in the nation's capital.
