The article is ****?
Since you set them up in your company long ago I guess we shouldn't post it then.

Re: Honda uses ICE chiller

I've read the article again and my position has changed...

I've decided that it's probably the most technically adept piece of literature on the subject yet written. It should immediately be adopted as the defacto standard used by facility managers everywhere to form the backbone of their demand side management programs...

Almost forgot...
I also think Honda should get an award for using decades old technology and making it seem new again...
