Combined Power & Heating for Hospitals
The Department of Energy's Southwest Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Technical Assistance Partnerships is providing no cost qualification screenings and project development assistance for WWTP sites. These screenings are great for planning purposes for your plant.  Combined heat and power, also known as cogeneration, provides both electric power and thermal energy (heat) from a single on-site source, such as a turbine or reciprocating engine. Please contact Gavin Dillingham, Director, to learn more about this screening.

Building Rehabilitation  Webinar
NFPA 101, 2102 edition Chapter 43
August 10, 2016
A webinar free to ASHE members will explain new Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements for renovation projects in health care facilities. Chapter 43 of the 2012 edition of NFPA 101 covers these requirements. Given the amount of renovation work that occurs in existing hospitals, it is critical for ASHE members to understand the requirements. The webinar, which will be held at noon on August 10, is free to ASHE members and $125 for nonmembers.
