(North Little Rock, AR) Energy Systems Group (ESG), a leading energy services provider, participated in Arkansas Advanced Energy Association’s (AAEA) first “Advanced Energy Day at the Legislature,” featuring nearly 20 exhibitors in the Capitol Rotunda and a panel of advanced energy industry leaders who addressed questions from legislators and the public. The day’s activities showcased the strength of the state’s advanced energy economy and its ability to provide Arkansans with more energy choices. A recent employment study released by AAEA showed more than 11,300 Arkansans employed by about 90 advanced energy companies across the state.
“We believe that growing our state’s share of the advanced energy economy means more jobs and more energy choices for Arkansans,” said Kerry Becton, ESG account executive. “Energy Systems Group and AAEA stand ready to work with our state leaders to take every advantage of Arkansas’s abundant advanced energy resources.”
ESG has developed several energy efficiency projects throughout Arkansas. These projects have helped schools, colleges, and cities modernize their infrastructure, reduce energy and operational costs, and conserve resources.

Munster, Ind. - Centennial Park is a closed landfill which has been transformed into a centerpiece for the Town of Munster's recreational and community activities, and now includes a 9-hole golf course, water features, amphitheater, a restaurant and banquet facility, walking trails, and public art.
In partnership with Energy Systems Group (ESG) and through funding made available by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Munster Redevelopment Commission approved development of this $4.3 million beneficial-use electric generation project in 2011. The Town plans to sell the power it generates as a part of this project back to the Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) at their Renewable Feed-in Tariff rate for biomass projects.
This project includes a GE Jenbacher engine/generator which utilizes the landfill gas (LFG) from the municipally-owned Centennial Park Landfill site to produce approximately 1.1 MW of electricity. In addition to a new flare and blower, the project employs a heat conversion technology which will take excess heat off of a large generator at the site. This heat will then be transformed into additional electricity.
By capturing these landfill gases, this sustainable project is helping provide environmental benefits equivalent to the removal of emissions from more than 1,100 cars per year or the planting of about 1,200 acres of forest annually.
