Siemens has already been instrumental in implementing solutions to improve the efficiency of buildings in and around the US. Since 2008, the City of Houston has awarded several projects to Siemens, to help enhance energy efficiency levels. Siemens has installed energy management systems and lighting systems in several facilities in the city, and made several HVAC improvements to help reduce CO2 emissions and lower operational costs by an estimated $900,000.
Another best practice example is in Mississippi, where the City of Jackson partnered with Siemens to generate utility savings and create local jobs. Energy management systems and lighting retrofits in the city’s libraries are helping to save energy and reduce costs.
