American DG Energy Introduces High Efficiency Heat Pump to Fleet
WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — American DG Energy Inc. (NYSE Amex: ADGE), a leading OnSite Utility, offering clean electricity, heat, hot water and cooling solutions to hospitality, healthcare, housing and athletic facilities, has reached an agreement to provide an on-site energy solution to Sidney Albert Albany Jewish Community Center (Albany JCC), located in Albany, New York. Under the terms of the agreement, the Albany JCC will receive a portion of its energy from a heat pump system, which will be owned and operated by American DG Energy. The Albany JCC will receive a discount on the energy produced by the heat pump and reduce its carbon footprint.
“Our mission statement explains that our core values are rooted in Jewish Principles. One of these is ‘tikkun olam’ which means repairing the world,” explained Nurit Sonnenschein, Executive Director of the Sidney Albert Albany JCC. “We are delighted to be involved in using an energy efficient, low emissions technology that may help us in our greening efforts.”
American DG Energy will produce domestic hot water, pool heat and space heat at the Albany JCC and sell it to the JCC at a price lower than the local energy utility. The Albany JCC will pay only for the energy used by the facility and will avoid all capital, installation and operating costs of the system. The energy will be produced with the Ilios high efficiency water heater or heat pump, located at the property site but owned and operated by American DG Energy. The Company will also handle all service, maintenance and repair; therefore, the Albany JCC will not need to provide manpower to support the equipment.
The Ilios high efficiency water heater employs a combination of technologies designed to boost efficiency, save money, and reduce impact on the environment. This natural gas fueled water heater combines traditional boiler technology with the power of the heat pump to make a dramatic leap in heating efficiency. Ilios extracts energy from the atmosphere and uses a cutting edge natural gas fueled engine to “pump” this heat to useful temperatures. The synergy of advanced heat pump and engine technology results in twice the efficiency of a gas fired boiler. For locations with substantial hot water requirements the cost savings and environmental impact will be significant.
American DG Energy has the exclusive rights to incorporate Ilios high-efficiency heating products in its energy systems throughout the European Union and New England. American DG Energy also has non-exclusive rights to distribute Ilios products in the remaining parts of the United States and the world in cases where American DG Energy retains ownership of the equipment for its On-Site Utility business.
