baltimore convention centre

AMERICAS - The Baltimore Convention Center (BCC) has signed an energy performance contract with Constellation, the business unit of American energy provider Excelon, to install US$10m worth of water and energy conservation measures.
 
The BCC hopes the move will allow the centre to conserve an estimated 100m gallons of water and avoid the creation of 6,058 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually over the next 15 years.
 
“The BCC is committed to sustainable operations,” said its Executive Director, Peggy Daidakis. “This contract with Constellation helps us to meet our goals of reducing overall water and energy usage and to satisfy our customers with whom we are actively engaged in promoting greener meeting spaces.”
 
The Director of the Baltimore City Department of General Services, Theodore Atwood, added: “The convention centre project is another step in our efforts to reduce Baltimore City government’s electric power use by 20 per cent by 2015.”
 
The conservation measures installed include energy efficient LED lighting and lighting controls; HVAC repairs and controls upgrades; thermal blankets on steam valves and fittings; low-flow toilets and faucets; building envelopment improvements such as caulking and weather stripping; and installation of a 'cool roof' membrane to reflect heat.
 
Work is scheduled for completion by 2013.
