2 Our Goal..... Increase Coxs commitment to protect natural resources by enhancing our environmental impact programs, further reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 20% over the next 10 years.
3 A Message from Jim Kennedy
4 What Were Doing Commitment from Executives Budget to Implement Energy Efficiency and Alternative Energy Initiatives Cox Environmental Council (CEC) Serve as a focal point and sounding board for ideas and proposals Serve as subject matter experts in their respective disciplines and operations Help promote initiatives and motivate employees Sustainable Design and Construction Guidelines and Recommendations Uses Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) Divisions as a basis Promotes holistic approach to building design and equipment and material selection Encourages Innovative Design Ideas
5 Fleet vehicle programs 98% of our fleet of over 15,000 vehicles are LEV (Low Emission Vehicles) or better Hybrid vehicles are used in our Corporate fleet pool and in several field operations Incentives provided for HQ employees Energy Audits of existing facilities Lighting, HVAC systems, water usage and compressed air and vacuum systems Alternative Energy Initiatives Solar Photovoltaic Systems Solar Water Heating Systems Investigating Wind Energy Farm Load Management / Demand Response Programs Reduces Need for Utilitys New Generation Projects Capacity Near load centers reduces new transmission construction What Were Doing (continued)
6 Applied Initiatives Central Park Headquarters – Built with the Environment in Mind HVAC – Water-side Economizer with Chiller Assist Indirect fluorescent lighting with motion sensors Water saving measures including motion activated faucets and water-free urinals Cox Target Media ValPak Way project – 10 acres under 1 roof! HVAC air distribution system – large air rotation units T8 - 6 lamp HO lighting in collation department 5.4 MVa Flywheel Uninterruptible Power Sources (UPS) Pre-condition 100% of Outside Air Solar PV Projects New Jersey – 130 kW & 1,000 kW (EOY) California – 100 kW Arizona – 150 kW (EOY)
7 Challenges Going Forward Local building codes & Government Regulations Las Vegas Water-free Urinal – How to charge for Sewage Treatment? Air Quality Restrictions Government Incentives Expire Costs to implement Alternative Energy – NEED REBATES! Measurement and Verification Confirm Theoretical Calculations How to account for variables
