Boosting Energy Performance in Federal Facilities

The federal government manages some 429,000 buildings totaling 3.34 billion square feet. It owns approximately 80% of that space and leases 20%. The National Deep Energy Retrofit (NDER) project, a pilot launched by GSA www.gsa.gov in 2012, is designed to push the savings from performance contracting well beyond that of typical ESPC projects. The ultimate goal: Discover innovations that will allow existing buildings to achieve net-zero energy consumption www.buildings.com
