BP's Helios Plaza

BP's Helios Plaza, Houston's first LEED Platinum certified building, installed combined heat and power (CHP) to ensure it would always have reliable power to run its 24/7 trading operations. CHP helps the building's ability to continue operating even during hurricanes, tornadoes, blackouts, or other adverse events. Improved energy efficiency and reduced emissions are additional benefits.

National Project Profile Search

CHP already accounts for nearly 10 percent of our nation's energy - numbering over 4,000 local, clean, and efficient systems and counting - and we have the potential for far more. The DOE's CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships have put together Project Profiles on over 100 individual CHP systems across the country, illustrating the diversity, benefits, operating conditions, equipment configurations, and lessons learned from these sites. Use the search tool below to find Project Profiles that match your own site's characteristics.
