Kevin Wooster assessed energy efficiency and conservation projects at Avon’s branch location in Atlanta, GA including computer power management settings.


The goal of Kevin Wooster’s EDF Climate Corps project with Avon was to assess energy efficiency and conservation projects at its branch location in Atlanta, GA and several of its other North American facilities.


In view of the energy efficiency projects already completed by Avon, Wooster’s work focused on identifying additional project opportunities at the Atlanta branch, reviewing and compiling best practices for Avon, analyzing the LEED and Energy Star programs and assessing on-site energy generation opportunities at several of Avon’s facilities.

Potential Impact

Of the six energy efficiency projects evaluated, one showed particular promise. According to Wooster’s analysis, adjusting computer power settings could reduce Avon’s energy use by over 190,000 kWh per year and emissions by 124 tons per year with no capital investment costs. Over just five years, this project could save the company more than $78,000 in net operating costs.
