Cogenerating engine project wins conference appearance for UWindsor engineering students

A team of UWindsor engineering students presented its project—a cogenerating engine with the potential to reduce the environmental footprint of buildings—to a conference in Florida last week.

The project received a $4,900 grant from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, which paid the group’s way to present at its gathering in Orlando.

The students’ lab-scale model burns natural gas to produce electrical or mechanical power; the excess heat is used to heat air and water. Read the full story, “Reducing the environmental footprint of buildings.”
