EPA recognises American DG for progressive carbon policy

American DG Energy Inc. (NYSE Amex:ADGE), has been recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Partnership for the carbon emissions reductions of the Company’s CHP systems.

It is the sixth consecutive year that the on-site utility has been lauded for it’s commitment to emissions reduction.

American DG Energy, a member of the CHP Partnership, was presented with a greenhouse gas reduction certificate by the EPA in recognition of the Company’s contribution to efficient U.S. energy production.

The 2011 certificate states that the high efficiency of the Company’s CHP systems prevented an estimated 28,000 metric tons of carbon equivalents as compared to typical energy supply systems, resulting in annual carbon emissions reductions equivalent to electricity used annually by 2,920 homes.

This represents a 21 per cent increase over the Company’s emissions reductions stated in the 2010 certificate.

“With Earth Day 2012 approaching on Sunday, April 22, 2012, we are pleased that our highly efficient energy systems continue to lower carbon emissions,” said John N. Hatsopoulos, Chief Executive Officer of American DG Energy. “It is an honor to be recognized for improving the environment and helping our customers.”
