NYHQ's central chiller plant consisted of three 1,100 ton gas
fired absorption chillers. In the spring of 2011, NYHQ
replaced one of the existing units with a 1,200
ton electric centrifugal chiller. The project
was partially funded through NYSERDA and is contributing to
a reduction in overall energy consumption and green house gas
Optimization & Lighting Controls
NYHQ implemented controls to turn off lights when they are
not needed in commercial buildings.
Maintenance System Controls
NYHQ uses computerized controls to reduce energy consumption on
heating, ventilation, and air conditioning
Air Handling Unit #3
There are complexities of improving performance and driving
energy savings in an older building. Addressing this included
refurbishing existing building infrastructure and equipment
to improve operational performance and reduce energy
& Power Feasibility Study
Also known as cogeneration, CHP involves the generation of
power at your building's site for use within
your buildings. By using a clean source of power,
consuming the power on site, and capturing the waste heat
for use inside your building, CHP is environmentally
friendly. NYHQ has investigated a potential CHP project at
Waste Decomposition System
An orgnaic bio digester has been installed in the
hospital's kitchen. The NYHQ kitchen prepares over 3,000
meals per day. Food waste is added to the bio digester
instead of being thrown out with municipal waste.
Microorganisms speed up the decomposition of the food waste into
effluent, and it is flushed down a sanitary drain. Click
