          CHP Installation Keeps Hospital Running During Hurricane Harvey

          With any major storm, energy reliability and security are major concerns for those in the storm’s path. While much of Houston, Texas, and the surrounding areas, were faced with uncertainty as Hurricane Harvey made landfall, the Texas Medical Center – the largest medical center in the world – was able to sustain its air conditioning, refrigeration, heating, sterilization, laundry, and hot water needs throughout the storm thanks to the combined heat and power (CHP) installation operated by Thermal Energy Corp (TECO).

          Learn more about the TECO CHP TAP at Texas Medical Center here.

          As was Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma is a powerful and dangerous storm, and so preparedness is essential. Those in its potential path are urged to follow the instructions of state and local authorities.

              SunShot Initiative Launches Solar Desalination Effort

              The SunShot initiative announced $15 million in new funding for technologies that advance solar desalination technologies. The Solar Desalination funding program will develop novel technologies or concepts that use solar thermal energy to create freshwater from otherwise unusable waters. Thermal desalination is a potential solution to increase water supplies for municipal water and agriculture, and is an important technology to purify water produced from various industrial processes, including oil and gas production. Advancing state-of-the-art thermal technologies and energy-efficient desalination systems will reduce the levelized cost of water by reducing the levelized cost of heat, resulting in more efficient thermal desalination processes and lower overall capital and integration costs for solar thermal desalination. SunShot expects to make 7-10 awards for a total of $15 million. Mandatory concept papers are due on December 4. Learn more.

                              AMO Celebrates Anniversary of Hamilton’s ‘Report on the Subject of Manufacturers’

                              Alexander Hamilton

                              On December 5, 1791, Alexander Hamilton delivered his Report on the Subject of Manufactures to Congress. In his report, Hamilton urged economic freedom by placing a great emphasize on the need to advance the manufacturing sector. Although technologies have drastically evolved in the last 226 years, these words still stand true and continue to be relevant to today’s manufacturing sector.

                              AMO took to the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to find out what people know about this Founding Father and manufacturing. Watch the video to learn more.
