Abstract
ABSTRACT: The proposed project would design a 10-ton multi-energy source, integrated cooling, heating, and power system, including the solar collectors, with the capacity to produce 8kWe of back-up electrical power. The system is a single integrated cooling, heating and power generation unit. It is similar in size and cost to a traditional commercial packaged heating and cooling system, and can operated off of solar energy, stored energy, natural gas, or grid power, allowing every Air Force building to become more energy efficient, more energy independent, and less susceptible to energy interruptions, saving up to 100% of the building"s energy costs. Additionally, a small scale demonstration system will be developed and tested as part of Phase I to prove system operation and component performance. BENEFIT: A case analysis tailored for weather in Macon, GA is presented which shows a 93% reduction in energy costs, an annual CO2 reduction of 63,673 lbs, an incremental installation cost payback of 4 months, and initial cost payback of 3.5 years.
