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.
Ben Franklin Technology Partners’ TechVentures2 facility uses Lutron lighting control systems to slash energy consumption. Automated shades with Hyperion solar-adaptive software and AMX helped to create an award winning, LEED certified facility.
