July 16, 2017
In the news
The University of the West Indies (UWI) Mona Campus will immediately upgrade its existing combined heat and power (CHP) plant to reduce its energy costs by over $52 million annually, and improve its environmental footprint with a 16 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
This upgrade is being facilitated by an agreement with New Fortress Energy, which will provide liquefied natural gas (LNG) for the Campus' plant. The changes will be visible as early as this September, and will ultimately enable the campus to become energy independent in the coming year.
