IRVINE, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--ENERActive Solutions, an Edison Energy company, today announced that it has been chosen by the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) to conduct audits and retro-commissioning projects on municipal buildings throughout New York City. ENERActive’s consultation will ensure that DCAS complies with New York City’s Local Law 87 (LL87), which requires buildings over 50,000 gross square feet to undergo periodic energy audit and retro-commissioning measures to help building owners and managers measure and develop an action plan to save energy.
“Our mission is to offer solutions that will ensure compliance with LL87 and provide forward-looking plans that will allow these important facilities – such as schools, public transportation depots and hospitals – to utilize energy in a more efficient manner, positioning them to be more sustainable for years to come.”
“It is an honor to partner with DCAS on this very exciting and important project in the initial phase of audits and recommendations,” said Dan Weeden, president and CEO, ENERActive Solutions. “Our mission is to offer solutions that will ensure compliance with LL87 and provide forward-looking plans that will allow these important facilities – such as schools, public transportation depots and hospitals – to utilize energy in a more efficient manner, positioning them to be more sustainable for years to come.”
ENERActive will perform a thorough assessment of each building’s energy portfolio, allowing the company to advise DCAS on the optimum solutions for energy improvements through replacement and upgrades, as well as installation of new technology and implementation of renewable energy projects. The company will also offer guidance related to optimization of current equipment and operations, verifying that existing equipment meets current energy needs and providing staff training to ensure plans can be properly implemented and overseen.
New York City is on a path to reduce citywide emissions by 80 percent by 2050. Public buildings are required to lead by example and reduce emissions from government buildings by 35 percent by 2025, as outlined in New York City’s sustainability plan, One City, Built to Last. Assessing the energy use of the city’s buildings and making the necessary changes or upgrades to infrastructure is a key step towards meeting these targets, as most buildings consume an average of 30 percent more energy than is needed to operate. ENERActive’s consultation and solutions are effective at cutting energy use and quick to implement, therefore critical to meet the urgent 35 percent reduction by 2025.
