In 2015, Burton Energy Group worked in conjunction with one of the world’s largest financial institutions to meet aggressive sustainability targets. Leveraging the power of the Burton Energy Strategy Platform (Burton ESP) the Bank was able to meet their carbon emissions and water consumption reduction goals through a comprehensive, data-driven energy and water consumption benchmarking and reduction tracking program. Results included:
Some of the data management services included:
- Anomalies are sorted and impacts on cost and energy and water consumption quantified.
- Sites are ranked for energy efficiency using a customized methodology with some similarities to ENERGY STAR®, and are prioritized for capital investment programs that can reduce consumption and cost.
- Available utility rebates identified, enabling the bank to pursue any available utility rebates for which they might qualify.
- Reports are generated that compare actual savings to projected savings to bolster confidence in making additional investments over time.
