The University of California, Davis completed a district energy master plan for its California National Primate Research Center (CNPRC). The study evaluated many alternatives with a life cycle cost analysis. Innovative solutions proposed to replace the aging steam infrastructure and absorption chiller plant included electrification and a transition to 100% renewable energy. The unique district lends itself to interesting energy supplies, including biogas from a nearby landfill and biodigester and solar thermal hot water generation.
