07-01-2019 12:47


Clearway Energy Inc.’s Uptown Energy Center is a state of the art district energy facility and distribution system located east of downtown Pittsburgh in the emerging Lower Hill district. The system, which went live in 2018, provides UPMC Mercy Hospital with steam, chilled water, and backup electric power.

Energy Center Pittsburgh – Uptown is an expansion of its regulated district energy footprint within the Pittsburgh region. The company has owned and operated Energy Center Pittsburgh – North Shore, a district energy system serving 30 buildings and more than 6.3 million square feet with chilled water, hot water and steam for over 20 years.

Duquesne University

One of Duquesne University’s highest-impact sustainability achievements has been the installation of its groundbreaking, energy efficient combined heat and power plant. The facility supplies up to 181,000 lb/hr of steam; 7,150 tons of chilled water; and 5 MW of electricity to 26 buildings on the 48-acre campus. When it came on line in 1997, it was the only CHP plant in Western Pennsylvania. That remains the case today, 22 years later.
