Ameresco Upgrading 2 NRC Facilities
Ameresco said this week that it is partnering with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) on a $3.9 million (Canadian) energy efficiency and facility renewal project. The goal is to upgrade the NRC’s research facilities in Halifax, Nova Scotia and St. John’s. The company says that the project is expected to result in annual savings of $330,000.
The upgrades will include lighting retrofits and installation; building automation system enhancements; laboratory refrigeration; freezer and environmental chamber consolidation and upgrades; fume hood system optimization and consumption reductions, Ameresco said.
The project has the potential to save 1.024 MWh and 164 kW of electricity, 10,223 gigajoules of steam and 14,154 cubic meters of water annually, Ameresco says. It is expected to be completed next year.
In July, Ameresco signed a $72.2 million agreement to retrofit four federal buildings in Washington, D.C., including those that house the Environmental Protection Agency headquarters, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
