Empire State Building Exceeds Energy Efficiency Savings

Empire-StateThe energy efficiency program at the Empire State Building has exceeded guaranteed energy savings for the second year in a row, saving $2.3 million, according to the team that developed the energy efficiency program comprised of the Empire State Building, Johnson Controls, Jones Lang LaSalle, and the Rocky Mountain Institute.

In 2009, the Empire State Building began a comprehensive retrofit at the property. In 2011, the building beat its year-one energy-efficiency guarantee by 5 percent, saving $2.4 million. In year two, the property surpassed its energy-efficiency guarantee by nearly 4 percent. As with the first year’s results, all information and monitoring and verification reports can be viewed atwww.esbsustainability.com.

The core base building energy-efficiency retrofit at the Empire State Building is complete, with the balance of the projects to be finished as new tenants build out high-performance workspaces. Once all tenant spaces are upgraded, the building will save $4.4 million a year, at least a 38 percent reduction of energy use.

The retrofit has attracted new Empire State Building tenants over the past two years, including LinkedIn, Skanska, LF USA, Coty Inc, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp, and Shutterstock. These tenants sought space that reflected their sustainability values, provided more comfort for employees, and allowed them to monitor and control their energy use.

The retrofit project focused on eight improvement measures addressing core building infrastructure, common spaces and tenant suites. Improvement measures performed by Johnson Controls and Jones Lang LaSalle included the refurbishment of all 6,514 windows, installation of insulation behind all radiators, a chiller plant retrofit, new building management systems controls, new revenue-grade meters serving the entire building, and a web-based tenant energy management system.

In late 2012, some energy efficiency data in New York City revealed that some old structures, such as the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building, had higher Energy Star scores than some newer so-called “green” buildings.

The Global Market for Building Energy Management Systems will Reach Over $23bn by 2017, Predicts Memoori Research Article By: Businesswire.com

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In 2013, the total world sales of Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) will be $16.7 billion at an installed value and Memoori forecasts that it will grow to $23.14 billion by 2017. This represents a CAGR of approximately 8.4% over the 5-year period.

“The Market for Building Energy Management Systems & Enterprise Energy Management”

Energy savings remain the key driver for the BEMS & EEM markets. Global attention is on the efficient use of energy resources and reduction in CO2 emissions. With buildings accounting for around 40% of primary energy usage, savings here can make a significant impact.

The major multinational companies Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Schneider Electric, Siemens and UTC dominate the products business in most countries across the developed world. We estimate that between them they take as much as 70% of the world’s product business and they have held this position for 15 years through an active acquisition strategy.

The Smart Buildings technology landscape is getting more competitive by the day. This is good news for end users, as vendors are competing to bring the most productive and cost effective solutions to market. Industry heavyweights from IT and building automation are being joined by niche energy management software providers, in the race to deliver sophisticated energy management solutions for automating and transforming facilities in buildings.
