On July 12, Ameresco, Inc. announced a $72.2 million energy savings performance contract with GSA for four federal buildings in Washington, D.C., as part of the GSA’s National Deep Energy Retrofit Program.

Nicole A. Bulgarino, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Federal Solutions, Ameresco remarked:

“Ameresco is excited to partner with the GSA in implementing this expansive deep energy retrofit project in the nation’s capital. This project pioneers in the area of deep energy retrofits and will enhance the overall sustainability and functionality of these large federal buildings in Washington, D.C.”

Under the ESPC, Ameresco will also address the headquarters buildings of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, as well as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Combined, according to Ameresco, the integrated measures will reduce total water consumption of the federal buildings by 54 percent and will reduce total energy consumption of the federal buildings by 40 percent. As a result of the project, the GSA is expected to save more than $120 million over the 22-year term of the ESPC.

The GSA National Deep Energy Retrofit (NDER) program began in 2012 and supports the GSA’s commitment to the Presidential Performance Contracting Challenge, as well as Executive Order 13693, Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade. This is the third NDER project Ameresco has been selected by the GSA to implement under the program.
