Tecogen's Ilios High Efficiency Water Heater Selected for Collaboration with NEEA

WALTHAM, Mass. — Tecogen® Inc., a developer and manufacturer of clean energy products, announced a collaboration with the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA), an alliance of more than 140 Northwest utilities and energy efficiency organizations, to install the first Ilios high efficiency water heater in the Pacific Northwest.  The Ilios air source modular heat pump unit will be installed in a retirement community in Salem, Oregon and served by natural gas from regional utility, NW Natural.

 

Speaking about the project, Benjamin Locke, Tecogen co-CEO noted, "First introduced in 2012, our Ilios high efficiency water heaters have been shipped worldwide including to Ireland, the UK, Australia, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the Eastern United States. We are optimistic that the capabilities and value proposition our energy-saving heating solution provides will be apparent in this collaboration project, leading to a new market and potential project partners in the Northwest."

 

The Ilios heat pump project will examine how much energy can be saved as well as other key considerations for installation and use that may be barriers to customer adaption in the region. Natural air source heat pump is a part of a portfolio of natural gas products that the region is investigating to benefit gas utility customers across the Northwest. The partners in this larger regional effort are Avista Utilities, Cascade Natural Gas Corp., Energy Trust of Oregon, NW Natural, and Puget Sound Energy.

 

The project partners expect to publish initial results in mid-2017. This fieldwork is part of a five-year regional plan to increase consumer choices for efficient natural gas use in the Northwest.
