PASADENA, Calif. -- June 11, 2013
Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE: JEC) announced today that theJacobs
designed cogeneration plant at Texas A&M University was recognized with a 2013
ENERGY STAR^® Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Award by the U.S. Environmental
Jacobs provided full-service design of the plant, including CHP and electrical
system design, construction administration, and commissioning. The system
requires one-third less fuel than a typical off-campus power plant with
similar output, prevents emissions of air pollutants, generates up to 45
megawatts of electricity, and serves the district energy system by supplying
steam and chilled water for space cooling, heating, and hot water for the
5,000-acre campus in College Station, Texas.
The new CHP system is also designed to operate and remain fully functional
during a power outage, an important factor for a higher education facility
with critical operations including research facilities, dormitories, and a
veterinary hospital. During the first month of the system’s operation, Texas
A&M’s energy savings exceeded $1 million. The plant is a significant step in
the university’s initiatives to reduce its CO2 emissions by 1,366,290 tons
over 30 years.
In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Tom McDuffie stated,
“It is an honor to help Texas A&M University achieve their aggressive power
reliability and sustainability goals, and we are pleased to be able to
contribute to their success and leadership among higher education institutions
in receiving this ENERGY STAR award.”
Jacobs is one of the world's largest and most diverse providers of technical,
professional, and construction services.
