The newest member of the E Source Corporate Energy Managers’ Consortium is the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport). Massport is a financially self-sustaining public authority that operates Boston Logan International Airport, the Port of Boston, Hanscom Field, and Worcester Regional Airport.
The E Source Corporate Energy Managers’ Consortium helps energy managers reduce their corporations’ energy consumption through energy management best practices, technology assessments, and other resources for facilities.
“We’re excited to be working with Massport,” said Kevin Vranes, director of energy sustainability products at E Source. “The organization is highly committed to energy optimization and conservation, and it’s already using alternative energy. Massport’s experience will be of great value to the energy management discussions that take place within the Consortium.”
Massport’s energy accomplishments include achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for Boston Logan’s Terminal A—the first certification of its kind in the world. Other energy goals include:
- Achieving a 20 percent reduction in energy intensity (Btu per square foot) from 2004 levels by the end of 2012
- Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent of 2002 levels by the end of 2012
- Getting 15 percent of the electricity for its operations from renewable resources
