Schneider to Help Cut Energy Use By Boston Mass Transit

BostonSchneider Electric said this week that it is working with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to reduce utility spending and carbon emissions in Boston area mass transport.

The goal is to implement a plan and required technology enabling the reduction of energy costs by 12 percent during the next year. MBTA is the fifth largest transit agency in the United States. It spends $48 million per year on electricity.

The press release says that MBTA will use Schneider’s Resource Adviser to “visualize, measure and manage efficiency and sustainability initiatives….in one interface.”  At the start, the software will compile and track data from as many as 218 energy meters at 45 sites, including utility and interval data.

In January, The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) said that it will use a battery storage network funded, owned and operated by Constellation. The 8.75 MW network will operate at seven SEPTA substations.
