Commerce noted that the CHP plant will work to reduce the electric load of NIST’s Maryland campus by 40 percent and use the high-temperature exhaust heat from the natural-gas-fired turbine to provide 75 percent of the steam load.

Johnson Controls will also replace two chillers in the Central Utility Plant with dual compressor chillers to eliminate the emission of the R-22 refrigerant and boost the campus’ free cooling capacity, the department said.
