About this Event

District Cooling & Heating (DCH) systems (also known as District Energy Systems and community microgrids) normally distribute thermal energy in the form of chilled or heated water from a central source to residential, commercial, and industrial locations for use in space cooling or heating and/or dehumidification. The conditioning medium comes from a centralized distribution rather than being generated on site at each facility resulting in efficiencies due to serving multiple buildings.

Sergio Grado of CenTrio will discuss the system serving Downtown Houston and how it benefits the City. Gavin Dillingham of HARC will discuss his work with this project and others, and his research into this subject.


Gavin Dillingham Vice President  of Research & Clean Energy at HARC, a research institute focusing on climate change adaptation with a specific focus on investment in resilient electric power infrastructure and the adoption of clean energy policies at the local, state, and federal level.

Sergio Grado is Director of Business Development with CenTrio, a global source of reliable, efficient, and sustainable energy to cities, campuses, and communities.  He keeps a focus on collaboration through his years of owning a construction company as well as his experience with global manufactures. 

Steve Stelzer currently serves as the Program Director for the City of Houston Code Enforcement Green Building Resource Center. Steve offers green building strategies to plans brought in by the public, develops and maintains green strategy displays and education programs, and coordinates the green building web portal for the City of Houston website.
