Capstone Turbine - BROAD Air Conditioning


Develop combined cooling-heating power (CCHP) systems to improve energy efficiency in buildings.

The Capstone Turbine Corporation (refer to as CAPSTONE) – BROAD Air Conditioning Co. Ltd. (refer to as BROAD) EcoPartnership will be developing distributed CCHP (combined cooling-heating-power system) solutions to improve the energy efficiency of existing buildings (in schools, hospitals, hotels, shopping malls, commercial office buildings and heave industry plants etc) and to promote the development of new green building designs that are both energy-efficient and cost-effective. Both organizations have extensive experience supporting green building projects. The Capstone microturbines and BROAD absorption chillers have already been installed in many sites looking to obtain green building certifications.

Work Plan: 
Task 1
Develop an optimized suite of pre-engineered/prepackaged distributed CCHP solutions with technical information sharing.
Task 2
Implement the distributed CCHP systems in demonstration sites in tier-1 cities in China.
Task 3
Promote the distributed CCHP solutions in tier-2 and tier-3 cities in China.
Task 4
Promote the suite of packaged CCHP systems in representative schools and hotels in North America.
Task 5
Assist local governments and affiliated organizations to develop stronger policies and powerful databases for analysis and decision-making.
