Energy Efficiency
Date: 2020-07-15
In the Keystone State, Council Rock School District in Newton reports receipt of a $1,641,916 matching-fund grant from the Commonwealth Financing Authority's Alternative and Clean Energy High Performance Building program. The money will be used to upgrade portions of two schools to USGBC LEED Gold certification for greater energy efficiency reduced energy costs.

The planned energy saving features include geothermal heating and cooling, energy-efficient lighting, automated energy control systems, low-flow water fixtures, occupancy-based temperature and lighting, an 85 kW solar PV array, and an improved thermal envelope.

The High Performance Building Program provides financial assistance in the forms of grants and loan funds to underwrite the cost premiums associated with the design and construction or major renovation of high performance buildings across Pennsylvania. The program is managed within the DCED Office of Business Financing.

Battelle-Led MRCSP Touts CCSU Demo Project Success (Ind. Report)
Battelle,Core Energy LLC
Date: 2018-03-14
In Columbus, Ohio, a Battelle-led team known as Midwest Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (MRCSP) reports it has successfully stored 1,000,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) as part of its large-scale demonstration project. The MRCSP demo is one of eight such DOE projects helping to develop and deploy carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technology.

In the intervening decade since the project got underway Battelle began the third phase of injection in 2013 and, in conjunction with Traverse City, Michigan-based Core Energy LLC, is monitoring, verifying and accounting for the CO2 being used for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in the depleted oil fields of Michigan's Northern Reef Trend.

The MRCSP comprises a 10-state region that generates almost 25 pct of all electricity generated in the country -- more than half of that by burning coal. The MRCSP is one of seven Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships in the U.S. established by DOE's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL).
