  • At the Oak RidgeNational Laboratory (ORNL), a new biomass fueled steam plant became fully operational in July 2012.This energy savings performance contract (ESPC) funded project is expected to save $4 million and avoid20,000 tons of GHG emissions annually.
  • In the past year, DOE’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) piloted a teleworkoption for its staff and achieved an 11 percent participation rate for staff teleworking once per month onaverage. By FY 2020, PNNL hopes to increase participation to 40 percent of staff teleworking one day aweek.
  • A recent successes of DOE's ability to integrate sustainability cost-effectively at mission-specificfacilities is the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL) Research Support Facility (RSF). NREL’s LEED-platinum 360,000 square foot facility was constructed at a cost of $254 per square foot, significantly lower than the industry average of $355 square foot for a LEED-platinum designed building.
  • In FY 2012, the Savannah River Site replaced 1950’s era coal-fired boilers with a new steamplant using an ESPC. The new plant will produce up to 20 megawatts of clean energy, avoid100,000 tons of GHG emissions each year, and save $35 million in energy and operations andmaintenance costs annually.
  • DOE’s performance can be attributed to theefforts of several large water consuming sites that upgradedlarge processes in FY 2012. For example, the Portsmouth Sitedecreased water consumption dramatically by 906 milliongallons (a 12 percent decrease from FY 2011) by replacing theonce-through cooling system at the Dry Air Plant (DAP) with arecirculating cooling water system and by replacing an old coal-fired steam plant with a new gas-firedboiler plant.
  • The Department also plans to continue to expand electric vehicle (EV) and alternative fuelinginfrastructure at DOE sites. Several DOE sites, including PNNL and NREL, have installed EV charging to studyemployee charging habits and further research of charging technology.
  • 68 HPSB buildings in 2012.
  • FY 2012, DOE’s Hanford Site met the GuidingPrinciples at a facility that treats groundwater contaminated by the country’s cold-war legacy. The 200West Groundwater Treatment Facility was constructed using recycled steel and concrete and over 75percent of construction waste was diverted from landfills.The building’s efficient design is expected to result in an energy cost savings of more than 70 percent over the life of the facility. Electric energy savings should amount to 317,470 kWh/year.  That’s enough energy to power nearly 28 American households according to U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates.The facility is designed to treat contaminated groundwater beneath the center of the Hanford Site. Construction of the Pump and Treat system was completed in just two years—two months ahead of schedule and $41.4 million under budget. The building will meet new Energy Department-mandated green building standards that address site sustainability, water efficiency, renewable energy, conservation of materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality, putting the concept of sustainability into practice.DOE made significant progress over the past year to improve sustainable building performance. In FY2012, DOE added 30 buildings to its green building portfolio, nearly doubling its overall HPSB countfrom FY 2011.
  • Revitalized the INL bus fleet with 52 new motor coaches designed to run on B20 and have improved fuel mileage by up to 50% (3 mpg to 6 mpg)Increased overall bus efficiencies by implementing express routes and eliminating underutilized routs. This was performed in conjunction with expanding the successful Park and Ride concept to include all INL Site bus operations.Add one additional Park and Ride location to further reduce employee commute and bus fleet fuelusage.
