TD Case Study. Huge money-saving secrets were unveiled at the Empire State Building. At an event that might have just as easily been a seminar for building owners hosted by one of New York’s most esteemed building owners, Anthony Malkin, President of Malkin Holdings and owner of the iconic structure. One might think that a $4.4 million per year savings and a full return on investment in just over 3 years, representing a 38.5 percent total energy savings with Johnson Controls, a lighting energy reduction of 65 percent using Lutron lighting controls, an Energy Star 90 and LEED EBOM Gold rating would make a highly competitive building owner tempted to keep his magic formula a secret. Not so. Check out the video and images from the space.
Energy efficiency across all systems of a network, a facility or even a city can save big bucks. The key to measuring the return on investment ahead of time is to do a thorough energy audit and get a comprehensive evaluation of what upgrades can be done and what they will save you based on your baselines from that energy audit.
