Boston Medical Center Using Veolia Cogeneration
The Boston Medical Center, which is a 496-bed academic institution in the South End of the city, is using Veolia’s “Green Steam” combined heat and power for thermal energy, the company said.
The approach reduces carbon emissions by as much as 8,500 tons annually. The 20-year thermal energy agreement between BMC and Veolia will be in place during a multiyear campus redesign. The $300 million redesign is aimed at consolidating services, increasing efficiencies, reducing operating costs and further lowering the facility’s carbon footprint, according to the press release. Veolia will provide power through cogeneration and metering as part of the project.
Last week, Schneider Electric said that it is working with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to reduce spending and carbon emissions in Boston-area mass transit.
