The Columbia University is one of the top academic and research institutions in the world, conducting path-breaking research and providing world-class education in medicine, science, the arts, and the humanities. It includes three undergraduate schools, thirteen graduate and professional schools, and a school of continuing education. Columbia’s North (Morningside) Campus is served from several heating and cooling plants that are connected by a district-wide system.

En-Power Group is currently working on incentive recovery for installation of a new 2800 ton electric chiller and new 2800 ton steam driven chiller, and variable frequency drives on the primary chilled water/condenser water pumps for their North Campus to provide for future growth and to meet the Mayor’s energy reduction challenge.
In addition, the En-Power Group is assisting with a master planning study to include replacement of all central plant equipment and incorporation of a 7.5 MW to 15 MW Combined Heat and Power System.
