Ameresco Begins Implementation of ESPC as Part of GSA’s National Deep Energy Retrofit Program Challenge

The GSA’s $45 million Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) is underway. The GSA selected Ameresco to develop a comprehensive ESPC addressing over one million square feet of office space at the New Carrollton Federal Building in Lanham, MD and the Silver Spring Metro Center 1 building in Silver Spring, MD. Both buildings will be modernized with the installation of 11,000 individually addressable LED lighting fixtures controlled by a network of sensors. Over 2,000 sensors will be installed in the two buildings. Capable of sensing occupancy and ambient light, the system will automatically adjust light output to match current conditions. The new lighting control systems will integrate into existing and new DDC control systems allowing the HVAC systems to heat and cool only occupied spaces.
