On January 25, 2011, New York University (NYU) announced the completion of its natural gas-fired Co-Generation (CoGen) plant. NYU has completed an investment of $125m in the upgrading of the CoGen plant and renovation of Mercer Public Plaza. The new CoGen plant, located beneath the Mercer plaza, approaches 90% energy efficiency while producing 13.4 MW of electricity – twice the output of the previous system. The state-of-the-art CoGen upgrade plant and public plaza installation project took 28 months to complete. It is one of the largest private CoGen plants in New York City, and provides electricity to 22 NYU buildings, as compared to only seven buildings being provided by the old plant. This new CoGen system will also produce heat and hot and chilled water for 37 buildings on the Washington Square Campus, and is expected to save the university $5-8m in energy related costs per year.
