Lessons Learned and a Creative District Energy Approach to serve a new Medical District

08-15-2017 11:07

Summary

With the addition of the new Dell Medical School campus, The University of Texas at Austin is rethinking how it delivers energy through its campus power and thermal system. The new building electrical loads created by the planned campus additions threatened to push the campus’ CHP systems beyond their most efficient operating points. The demands of meeting additional heating and cooling loads were also beyond the capability of the existing system. Employing a creative approach and extensive lessons learned from the University’s previous chilled water plants, Chilling Station No. 7 is poised to reliably serve the new medical district while simultaneously reducing the Utility system’s energy footprint.
