The U.S. Department of Energy has chosen Trane, an air conditioning systems and services business of American Standard, to find ways to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions at Department of Energy sites across the U.S.

“As the federal government’s lead agency on energy management, DOE will have raised the bar with TEAM initative,” said Secretary Samuel W. Bodman in a release issued by the DOE. “Over the next few years, DOE will leverage every possible public and private resource to improve our energy performance and reduce our energy intensity. By fundamentally transforming the way the department manages energy use in its facilities not only will we be able to achieve the President’s ambitious goals for increasing efficiency, but it will also allow for a cleaner, leaner, and more efficient federal government.”

Transformational Energy Action Management (TEAM) is an initiative aimed at reducing energy intensity across its nationwide complex by 30%, which will save $90 million in taxpayer dollars annually, after projects are paid for.

Trane will implement energy savings performance contracts at selected sites.

“Building energy use is the single greatest contributor to global warming emissions while offering a significant opportunity for our country’s government and businesses to save operating expenses,” said John W. Conover IV, President of Trane’s commercial business in the Americas. “Energy savings performance contracts are an important way for the Department of Energy to deliver on its environmental promises while doing necessary facility upgrades to ensure that workers are productive an comfortable.”
