The Bradley airport Energy Center is a combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP) plant operational since 2002. The airport saw CCHP as one of its most practical and viable solutions to improve energy efficiency and respond responsibly to greenhouse emissions concerns. This fully integrated plant meets all the electric and thermal power needs of the airport terminal with significantly higher levels of reliability and energy efficiency than power purchased from the grid. By capturing and utilizing the thermal energy that is typically wasted by large utility central power plants, excess energy is used to provide needed heating and cooling. As the airport continued its ongoing expansion, the Bradley Energy Center (BEC) needed to increase its capacity.
