Houston Cutting Energy Use in City Buildings

houston.jpgSiemens is poised to retrofit some 5.5 million square feet of facilities in Houston as part of the Clinton Climate Initiative.

The project will focus on energy and water conservation and also make certain emergency response facilities disaster-resistant. When completed, the city estimates the energy efficiency improvements will save millions of dollars in electricity costs annually and reduce GHG emissions.

Siemens and the City of Houston have worked on large-scale energy management projects before. Just recently Siemens and the General Services Department finished the third phase of a multi-million dollar interior lighting retrofit program. The program helped the City avoid using some 5.3 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually and allowed Houston officials to receive more than $250,000 in rebate dollars from the local utility, CenterPoint Energy. The program has also resulted in avoiding the  equivalent of about 2,600 tons of GHG emissions per year.
