Manhattan’s largest hotel completes cogen install

The New York Hilton has completed a new green roof system and installed a cogeneration system, both designed to reduce the hotel’s overall carbon footprint.

 
The 16,000-square-foot green roof system was installed by Xero Flor America and is located on the hotel’s fifth floor rooftop setback on the building’s West 53rd Street side.  The system represents a major investment by Hilton New York to benefit efforts in carbon capture, energy conservation, and reduction of the Urban Heat Island effect.
 
The installation of a highly-efficient, environmentally-friendly Cogeneration system also situated on the hotel’s 5th floor roof setback, will provide in excess of 50 per cent of the hotel’s electrical power and over 40 per cent of its steam consumption for heating and hot water requirements. 

As the largest hotel in New York City with 1,981 rooms, Hilton New York consumes over 23 million kW hours of electricity per year.
