BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. - Siemens Government Services Inc. (SGS), an integrator of Siemens’ products, services, and solutions for the federal government, announced that it has received a $38.5 million task order award from the General Services Administration (GSA) to implement energy efficiency improvements to 39 federal government facilities across the Greater Southwest Region (Region 7). The Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) will be managed and delivered from SGS through Siemens Industry Inc.’s Building Technologies Division.

“Siemens is proud to work with the federal government to apply its energy conservation expertise to help federal buildings achieve overall energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals,” said Dave Mangano, senior vice president, Field Operations, Siemens Building Technologies Division. “As the largest single user of energy in the U.S., the federal government is leading by example and is committed to improving the energy efficiency of America’s publicly-owned building stock, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and enhancing the nation’s energy security. With more than 110 branch locations and some 9,000 employees here in the U.S., the Building Technologies Division and SGS are uniquely positioned to help federal agencies meet these challenges head on.”

During the 26-month implementation period, Siemens will deliver renewable energy and building automation systems including solar photovoltaic generating technologies and sophisticated HVAC, advanced irrigation, and lighting control systems. Water-conserving plumbing and energy-efficient lighting fixtures, heating and cooling system upgrades, and building envelope improvements such as thermal pane windows and insulation will also be installed during the construction phase.

When the construction phase is complete, the project’s comprehensive list of improvements are expected to yield the equivalent of $1.7 million in guaranteed energy savings in the program’s first year - an amount projected to increase to an aggregate $2.6 million annually under the savings performance targets set by the individual performance contracts in Region 7. Retrofitting and building upgrade projects are now underway in several facilities and are scheduled to finish by October 2012.
