Oregon State University Energy Center
Committed to teaching, research and outreach and engagement, Oregon State University promotes economic, social, cultural and environmental progress for the people of Oregon, the nation and the world.
LEED Platinum Cogeneration Facility
The Oregon State University Energy Center set a new standard of excellence as the first LEED Certified Power Plant in the nation. OHP+D designed the building as a replacement facility for OSU’s 100+ year old steam plant. The new building meets the campus energy needs through a cogeneration process allowing Oregon State University to redirect unused marketable power back to the regional energy grid. The Energy Center also tests alternative bio-energy sources and works closely with the University’s College of Engineering, providing cross-departmental opportunities for students to engage in the university’s processes.
