Siemens to help U.S. Geological Survey increase energy efficiency

Sponsored by

Siemens Government Technologies Inc. won a $11 million task order by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to implement energy efficiency measures at three of its facilities: National Center (Reston, Virginia); Columbia Environmental Research Center (Columbia, Missouri); and the Western Fisheries Research Center (Seattle).

Under the Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC), an IDIQ contract with the Department of Energy, the cost of the project will be funded by energy savings guaranteed by Siemens. It will allow the USGS to advance President Barack Obama’s vision that federal facilities generate 20 percent of their energy from renewables by 2020.

Through this project, Siemens will enable the USGS to accomplish reductions in energy and water usage at facilities located throughout the United States. Specific energy conservation measures will include, but are not limited to, building automation systems, chiller plant improvements, domestic water retrofits, lighting, and solar photovoltaic solutions. This USGS-Siemens partnership may include an expansion of these energy conservation efforts to other USGS facilities in the future.

Siemens holds many ESPCs across the federal government. ESPCs allow federal agencies to reduce their energy usage, incur no upfront costs and then retain the associated savings.
