21 The effort cost $27,000 and yielded $13,500 in annual energy savings. AEP Completed SitesAEP Complete: 32 Sites(Includes 12 sites that have completed construction and 20 sites in construction)In Q4 2012, DCAMM completed retro-commissioning of the HVAC system in the Taunton Career Center.The effort cost $27,000 and yielded $13,500 in annual energy savings.
22 AEP Initiated Sites AEP Initiated: 172 Sites RFP (estimated $24 million) to retrofit the Erich Lindemann and John W. McCormack buildings in Boston.An audit was completed on the Gardner District Court by a Utility Vendor.
23 AEP Sites by Certification Group Across the entire AEP portfolio, DCAMM and DOER will target a 25% reduction in energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy costs.Consistent with statewide goals, DCAMM and DOER will prioritize energy efficiency.AEP Certified and Certified PlusTo become AEP Certified, an individual site must achieve a minimum reduction in two of the following three categories: site energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy costs. The required level of reduction (see next slide) varies depending on the site category (large, small, occasional use).To become AEP Certified Plus, sites must implement additional cost-effective clean energy measures in order to achieve higher reductions than under the AEP Certified level (see next slide). Additionally, sites must establish staff training and preventive maintenance programs.DCAMM and DOER will pursue AEP Certified designation for all sites.On-site clean energy generation may be used to achieve AEP Certified and Certified Plus levels.A site may become AEP Certified and then achieve an AEP Certified Plus designation at a later dateWhere applicable, water conservation measures will be included at all sites.
24 AEP Certification Large Sites (i.e. hospitals, colleges, prisons) Small Sites(i.e. police barracks, career centers)Occasional Use Sites(i.e. ice rinks, state parks)AEP CertifiedAchieve a 25% reduction in at least 2 of the following categories: site energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, energy costs.Energy consumption must be reduced by at least 10%Achieve a 20% reduction in at least 2 of the following categories: site energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, energy costs.Meet the reduction threshold for small sites or implement at least three energy/water conservation measures.Large and Small SitesAEP Certified PlusAchieve a 50% reduction in at least 2 of the following categories: site energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, energy costs;Energy consumption must be reduced by at least 20%Establish energy and facility maintenance training program for staff; andDevelop plan for preventative maintenance to keep systems operating at optimum efficiency.Not eligible

26 Innovative Utility Vendor Contracting DCAMM is signing direct contracts with utility vendors with the authority of the MA Green Communities Acts. These contracts will use pricing already negotiated by utility companies.In December 2012, RISE Engineering (a division of Thielsch Engineering, Inc.) became the first vendor to execute the new DCAMM Utility Vendor contract.In Q1 2013, DCAMM will be reaching out to ALL utility vendors to offer participation in program.Deputy Commissioner Sandra Duran congratulates Thielsch’s Vice-President Vin Graziano on becoming a DCAMM approved Utility vendor
27 Mass Energy Insight (MEI) MEI is a free, web-based tool provides consumption data and delivers customized, easy-to-use reportsTracks monthly account energy use for Massachusetts state agencies for electricity and natural gas through automatic downloadsMEI is provided at no cost to state agencies by DOER as part of the Leading By Example program.

35 Hogan Regional Center & Wrentham Developmental Center PROJECT HIGHLIGHTHogan Regional Center & Wrentham Developmental CenterEnergy and Water RetrofitConstruction Began: October 2011Substantial Completion: February 2013DCAMM, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS), J.C.Cannistraro and KlingStubbins have recently completed large-scale energy upgrades at the two facilities.Measures included power plant decentralization, solar PV installation, lighting upgrades, and HVAC improvements. The upgrades are on track to save nearly $2.5 million in energy costs annually.The 500kW solar PV installation at Wrentham will save over 6 million kWh of electricity annually.
36 Discussion Break-OutSpecify a sustainability project you have been able to implement using your own internal resources and some of the key benefits to your facilityDiscuss the top 2-3 key reasons you were able to successfully implement this projectIdentify ways in which DCAMM, LBE or other state agencies could be helpful in ensuring that these types of projects can be implemented on a wider scale
37 Thank you and please join DCAMM and Cannistraro for a tour of Wrentham’s upgraded power plant and 500 KW ground-mounted solar PV installation.
