A joint project between the University of Louisville in Kentucky and Siemens has saved UofL $12.9 million in energy costs in about four years.
Since 2009, UofL has spent $46 million to reduce energy use on its three campuses through contracts with Siemens’ Building Technologies Division. The project has saved utility and other costs by improving energy and operational efficiency in 88 campus buildings.
UofL trustees voted in February to spend another $10 million to expand the project. This will allow for additional infrastructure improvements, including a new $1 million bulk sterilizer installation at the downtown Health Sciences Center, LED lighting in the football stadium parking lots and the indoor tennis center, and various building improvements.
