The Samares School Board is the recipient of an Institutional Energy Management award from the Association of Energy Engineers, recognizing the school board as a pioneering leader in energy efficiency and sustainable development. In four project phases, Ecosystem upgraded 80 different schools, which substantially reduced the school board’s energy bills. Greenhouse gas emissions were cut by nearly 5,000 metric tons per year and oil consumption was completely eliminated.
The Montreal Biodôme is receiving the International Energy Project of the Year award from the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE), recognizing exceptional energy efficiency upgrades. This project was designed and delivered by Ecosystem. The AEE will present the award to representatives of the Biodôme during the 2015 World Energy Engineering Congress in Orlando, Florida on September 30th.
This week marked the official launch of a new energy retrofit project which will improve the carbon footprint and indoor environmental conditions for over 1,200 households. Three principal partners—Toronto Community Housing, the Toronto Atmospheric Fund, and Ecosystem—are working together to achieve this ambitious $4.2M project.
Ecosystem has been selected by Rockland Community College (RCC) to perform an extensive energy efficiency retrofit at the College’s campus in Suffern, New York. The project is expected to reduce RCC’s energy costs by 43%, improve its building infrastructure, improve indoor comfort levels, and lower its environmental footprint. The project, expected to begin in 2016, includes major retrofits and upgrades of RCC’s heating, cooling and ventilation systems, which will reduce RCC’s purchased electricity load and enable the College to generate part of its own power, hence increasing its resiliency during emergency situations.
