Join Urban Green Council for an exclusive tour of the New York University Washington Square Co-Generation (“CoGen”) Plant. Operational since 2011, the new CoGen plant approaches 90% energy efficiency while producing 13.4 megawatts of electricity. The CoGen plant decreases greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 23%, while reducing air pollutants by 68%, compared to its 30-year-old predecessor. It is one of the largest private CoGen plants in New York City, and provides electricity to 22 NYU buildings, as well as heat and hot/chilled water to 37 buildings.


The tour, led by John Bradley, will focus on the design, construction, and operations of the CoGen facility.
