Cummins enlisted Shivang Desai to develop strategic initiatives that will ensure energy efficiency in its existing and new facilities. In addition to expanding existing building standards to take site and climatic conditions into account, he developed a building commissioning process for use across the entire organization, as well as a metric for gauging energy efficiency and carbon dioxide output at sites under consideration for new facility construction.
In just 40 U.S. facilities, Desai's recommendations could save Cummins over $5 million in net operating costs every year, as well as 72 million kilowatt hours and 51,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
