New York Provides $250,000 for Energy Efficiency at Brewery

The Anheuser-Busch brewery in Baldwinsville, New York, will install new heat recovery equipment that should save the company more than $550,000 each year in energy costs, thanks to state incentives. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is providing a $250,000 cash incentive to the brewery in support of its $1 million project. The project will use an innovative configuration and underutilized heat recovery technology to recover 25 percent more waste energy from the brewery's four boilers than is currently recovered. The new equipment should be installed by fall 2003. Located just outside of Syracuse, the brewery produces about 8 million barrels of beer each year. See the NYSERDA press release.
