Trish Kenlon identified energy efficiency opportunities at the two main office buildings of TXU Energy.
EDF Climate Corps fellow Trish Kenlon spent her summer in Dallas, TX working with TXU Energy (TXUE), an electricity provider with over 2 million customers. An MBA student at NYU, Kenlon identified energy efficiency opportunities ranging from lighting, office equipment energy use, office equipment procurement and heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
Kenlon brought fresh eyes to a corporate culture already focused on efficiency, and identified opportunities to reduce the electricity consumption of TXUE's two main office buildings by 10 percent and 30 percent respectively, which could save the company over $200,000 and 2.3 million kWh of electricity annually, while avoiding over 6,500 metric tons of CO2 emissions.
