Aegis Energy, EDF Group developing Combined Heat and Power system for Troy Boston
Cogen system helps new South End community earn designation as LEED Gold Building
BOSTON _ Aegis Energy, EDF Group, an innovative Combined Heat and Power company based in Holyoke, MA, has developed a cogen system for the $185 million Troy Boston, a mix-use development in Boston’s South End.
The 378-unit development covers a full city block and is comprised of a 19-floor residential tower, 6,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space, and a 180-car, above ground garage.
The project has been designated a LEED Gold Building having earned between 60-79 LEED certification points.
“This project was able to use its CHP system to earn LEED points under the Optimize Energy Performance credit, which rewards buildings for enhanced energy efficiency, and is the maximum LEED® point-earning credit,” said Lee Vardakas, President of Aegis Energy, EDF Group “We are seeing an increase in the number of developers employing CHP for its energy saving benefits and subsequently for use in LEED certification, as LEED becomes an important influence on building design.”
Founded in 1985, Aegis Energy, EDF Group’ modular systems are currently utilized across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic providing energy-saving, clean power options for a wide array of customers.
Under the direction of Vardakas the company’s signature CHP installation projects include the EPA award-winning installation at the National Archives and Records Administration, the AAA-4 Diamond Saybrook Point Inn and Spa in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, and multiple installations at the renowned Tudor City in New York.
Aegis utilizes its highly efficient modular systems to reduce both energy costs and emissions for a variety of facilities, from healthcare and assisted living facilities, to recreational and multi-residential complexes, and hotels. There are also institutional, educational, and industrial facility applications.
Troy Boston borders Traveler, Albany, and East Berkeley Streets. The project was a collaboration between real estate investment and development firm Gerding Edlen, Normandy Real Estate Partners and National Real Estate Advisors.
