Upcoming Webinars:

How Combined Heat and Power Can Help Laboratories Become More Sustainable and Lower
​Thursday, July 21 at 1 PM EDT

Combined heat and power, also known as cogeneration, is the production of both power and heat from a single or dual fuel source, e.g., natural gas or biogas. This technology can replace or supplement existing, and possibly outdated, inefficient, conventional technologies and provide a safe and clean back-up power source.

During this webinar, Tom McGeehan of E-Finity Distributed Generation will discuss how to implement a combined heat and power system and the associated environmental and health benefits.

RDC members can register FREE using the code sent on 6-28-16 by Jaclyn Lee.
