New Jersey Resources - 2010
Marty Griffith identified projects totaling $22,566 in yearly energy savings during his fellowship at New Jersey Resources. An MBA candidate at McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University, his projects included recommendations for lighting improvements, installation of occupancy sensors on vending machines, "right-sizing" of fleet vehicles, and installation of window film on skylights.
If all projects are implemented, they will result in a cumulative yearly greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction of 127 metric tons. In addition to the traditional Climate Corps scope of work, Griffith also made significant improvements to the company's GHG accounting system to better track emissions and allow the company to normalize them in order to account for future growth. These changes will allow NJR to accomplish its goal of a 20 percent reduction in emissions by 2020 on a per unit basis rather than on an absolute basis.
Griffith also researched pending EPA legislation regarding mandatory GHG reporting. This led to several discoveries that may change the measurement methods for GHG emissions along the company's system of natural gas distribution pipes. Griffith was able to recommend several possible ways to reduce these emissions including reducing pipeline heater use. Although no concrete projects arose from this research, Griffith feels that the conversations that started as a result of his research will have an impact on company policy going forward.
Where is he now?
Griffith is now a Solutions Group Manager at Green Generation Solutions.
