Background

Through the Department of General Services, the State of Maryland (MD) has selected the Motor Vehicle Administration’s (MVA) headquarters for an Energy Savings Performance Contract to reduce energy consumption at the MVA Campus. Energy savings of 25% and cost savings of 28% are expected as a result of this effort. The project will allow the headquarters to continue to lead by example, provide a better working environment, and lower operating expenses.

Background

The MVA touches the life of almost every citizen in the State of Maryland. The core mission of the MVA is to deliver services to state citizens in the most efficient manner possible, ensure the safety of every driver and maintain the integrity and security of the process for every product it issues.

The MVA continues to evolve as changes in technology make processes and services more efficient. This energy efficiency effort will allow the headquarters to continue to lead by example, provide a better work environment, and assist in lowering operating expenses.

Solutions

Construction on this project is expected to start in March 2014 and take approximately one year to complete. Energy efficiency measures featured at the MVA facility include: lighting, lighting controls, building envelope improvements and building control updates across the campus, and a solar car charging station at the main building. As a result of these efforts, an energy reduction of 25%, equivalent to 38 Million kBtu/sq. ft. is expected, in addition to a cost savings of 28% or $340,000.

Solutions

The following is a list of EEMs to be implemented at the MVA headquarters building:

  • Lighting controls
  • Vending machine controls
  • Building envelope improvements
  • High efficiency transformers
  • Boiler burner controls
  • Solar demand hot water heating
  • Kitchen exhaust hood controls
  • Walk-in freezer/refrigerator controls
  • Computer power management
  • Fan VFD replacement

In addition, the state plans to install solar car charging stations and implement a number of water conservation measures at the site.
