New York to spend US$20 million on CHP projects

Two paper mills in St. Lawrence County, New York, US, are set to receive $2 million each to develop projects for wood-chip-fueled combined heat and electric power systems.

The mill plans to generate 960 kW with a $13.7 million system, while the plant aims to generate 13.6 MW with a $23.7 million biomass system.

The grants are part of $20 million in funding from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) for 19 projects across the state to improve energy efficiency at the facilities, which include housing, supermarkets, hospitals and the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.

The selected projects represent more than 22 MW of new generation capacity.

All projects will be capable of operating during a power outage.

NYSERDA plans to fund between 30% and 50% of the various CHP projects.
