DISTRIBUTED ENERGY CENTER
The Backyard Microgrid serves as the primary source of energy for the entire campus and is at the heart of sustainability efforts across the project. Energy for the campus is produced in the Distributed Energy Center (DEC) on a 24/7 basis and distributed to the various buildings, venues, and facilities through electrical, hot and chilled water loops. These loops are placed underground, connecting the DEC to all tenants and users at The Backyard. Energy for the Microgrid is sourced from a combination of Austin Energy, on-site gas-fired generators, fuel cells, and harvesting of the exhaust heat from the generators themselves to produce hot and chilled water to be used for environmental controls and culinary purposes.
- 24 MW of electricity
- Chilled and hot water
- Ultra-quiet utility plant
- World class control room
- Energy focused education platform
- Lecture and classroom space
