“Cushman & Wakefield is honored to be recognized for our sustainability team’s commitment to innovation,” said Jeff Eaton, president of Cushman & Wakefield’s Minneapolis/St. Paul office. “The Eureka! Awards further confirm that our Real Time Energy Monitoring program is an important investment for our clients, tenants and the company.”
Buildings consume approximately 30 percent of all energy used in the United States, making it the largest controllable operating expense at any given property. The Real Time Energy Monitoring program is designed to enhance building owners’ and managers’ understanding of utility usage while driving down operational costs by identifying, implementing and managing energy savings and conservation opportunities.
Led by CW’s Chuck Palm, the Real Time Energy Monitoring program includes three key components: hardware, software and engineering support. Participant properties can use the program to:
- Track energy expenses with support for utility tariffs and supply contracts for electricity, steam, gas and chilled water.
- Fine-tune building operations using technology to gain immediate feedback when trying different efficiency ideas.
- Provide alerts when the system notes deviations from normal examples.
CW is setting the industry standard for sustainability practices and initiatives and has proven that with minimal capital investment, a company can reduce its energy consumption while also limiting its environmental impact.
Winners of the 2015 Eureka! Awards were honored during a ceremony hosted by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal on Thursday, June 25.
