Energy & Sustainability Management Building Efficiency Projects

Information about Energy & Sustainability Management Building Efficiency Projects.

 

Energy Efficiency Retrofits of Public Buildings

City of Albuquerque works hard in creating Energy Projects throughout the many districts of Albuquerque.

These projects go through a detailed review with Albuquerque Energy Council and Technical Review Committee to make sure that they save Energy and money for the City of Albuquerque. 3% Energy Projects consist of Renewable solar, LED lighting upgrades and mechanical system upgrades.

The energy and Sustainability team works closely with department managers to ensure that their facilities meet Energy reduction standards and any concerns have been met during the construction phase. AEC members are updated during monthly meetings with the scheduled progress of the project detailed and reviewed.

 

 


3% Energy Efficiency Project FY 2019-2022

 

Manzano Mesa Multigenerational Center Energy Efficient Lighting and Control Upgrade Project 

This project replaces all existing lighting fixtures throughout the building, including all offices, mechanical room, parking lot, and exterior lighting, upgrading the building to meet the light level standard and providing more foot-candles by replacing T8florescent, incandescent, sodium, quartz, and metal halide makeup the verity of existing fixtures being replaced by LED fixtures on the project. IES Lighting standards being applied to the project increased the lighting levels throughout the facility, and in some areas, a reduction in fixture count was realized.
