Project Files: Energy Reduction

COMPANY: Siemens Building Technologies Inc., Buffalo Grove, Ill.

INSTALLATION: Investment-grade energy audit, HVAC upgrades

COMPLETION: To be determined

CUSTOMER: Allegheny College, Meadville, Pa.

OBJECTIVE: Replace aging elements of the infrastructure in order to achieve better energy efficiency and emission reductions across all facilities at the college.

DESCRIPTION: Siemens Building Technologies Inc. was recently selected to provide an investment-grade energy audit, the first step in a total energy use reduction plan, at Allegheny College, a private liberal arts college in Meadville, Pa. The company has also agreed to install the retrofits and guarantee the energy savings to the college. Following the initial audit, the company will use the data to prepare a formal presentation that outlines what facility improvement measures will deliver the best energy-efficiency gains. Judging from Siemens’ past experience, Allegheny College’s audit will likely reveal that upgrades to boilers, chillers, major HVAC equipment, water, thermal improvements, building lighting, and system controls will net significant energy savings. “Allegheny is not only committed to reducing our own impact on the environment, but we are also dedicated to providing students with the knowledge and skills they need to deal with ongoing environmental issues as they assume leadership roles,” said Richard Cook, president of Allegheny.

”We are also dedicated to providing students with the knowledge and skills they need to deal with ongoing environmental issues…”
