The Baltimore Convention Center has announced an energy performance contract to install approximately $10 million in water and energy conservation measures.
By implementing water and energy conservation measures, Baltimore Convention Center expects to conserve an estimated 100 million gallons of water and avoid the creation of 6,058 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually over the next 15 years.
"The Baltimore Convention Center is committed to sustainable operations," said Peggy Daidakis, executive director for Baltimore Convention Center. "This EPC with Constellation helps us to meet our goals of reducing overall water and energy usage and to satisfy our customers with whom we are actively engaged in promoting greener meeting spaces."
Theodore Atwood, director of the Baltimore City Department of General Services, added that, "The Convention Center project is another step in our efforts to reduce Baltimore City government's electric power use by 20 percent by 2015."
