Ingersoll Rand - 2012
At Ingersoll Rand, Deepak Jose worked toward SEP and ISO 50001 accreditation at the Trane facility in Tyler, Texas. He scoped, analyzed and recommended energy projects such as HVAC retrofits, compressed air efficiency, demand response, power factor reduction, equipment retrofits and Local Area Network (LAN) controls.
Together, these projects could reduce Trane’s energy costs by 26.3 percent annually. Deepak also identified efficiency opportunities at the Schlage Lock facility in Colorado Springs, Colo., such as heat recovery, compressor use reduction, wastewater treatment, optimizing space temperature set points, and lighting retrofits.
Combined, these projects have the potential to reduce annual, enterprise-wide electricity usage by 1.6 percent (12.1 million kilowatt-hours), net operating costs by $3.5 million and carbon dioxide emissions by 7,000 metric tons.
Chad Reed took a holistic approach to identifying energy efficiency opportunities at Ingersoll Rand. He scoped, modeled and recommended nearly 30 efficiency projects at two Ingersoll facilities – building envelope repairs, lighting retrofits, computer power management optimization, installing vending misers and manual fan timers, automating building system integrations, submetering and more.
Together, these projects could save Ingersoll Rand nearly $250,000 in annual energy costs and 1,400 metric tons of annual carbon dioxide emissions.
Additionally, Reed wrote and recommended a new strategy for employee sustainability accreditation standards for Ingersoll's 52,000 employees. He also analyzed the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) for Ingersoll business lines presented by the Department of Energy’s new Commercial Building Energy Asset Rating Tool. Finally, he crafted two case studies of energy conservation initiatives undertaken by volunteer "green teams" at Ingersoll; these initiatives aim to spread best practices in sustainability in the company and broad business community.

Deepak Jose recommended that Ingersoll Rand invest in energy efficiency projects ranging from HVAC and compressed air to demand response and LAN controls. As a whole, these upgrades could reduce Ingersoll's annual operating costs by $3.5 million and carbon dioxide emissions by 7,000 metric tons.
Chad Reed recommended nearly 30 energy efficiency upgrades to Ingersoll Rand, which could save nearly $250,000 in energy costs and 1,400 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually.
“We have hosted six EDF Climate Corps fellows over the years, and each time they have far exceeded expectations. The investment is a no-brainer.”
-- Scott Tew, Executive Director of the Center for Energy Efficiency, Ingersoll Rand
