Savage Precision has partnered with the Department of Energy for the Better Plants Program. As a representative of a Lockheed Martin supplier, Savage was recognized this year at the Better Plants Betters Buildings Summit in Washington, D.C. Savage took their pledge December 2015 to become a partner. What is the Better Buildings Summit? The Better Buildings Summit is a national meeting where leading organizations across key sectors showcase solutions to cut energy intensity in their buildings portfolio-wide by 20% over the next ten years. This Summit is designed for partners and stakeholders to exchange best practices and highlight demonstrated market solutions with an equal emphasis on discussing future opportunities for greater energy efficiency in America’s homes and buildings. At the 2016 Summit, more than 900 participants engaged in dialogue focused on sharing proven approaches. Speakers from the commercial, industrial, public, multifamily, residential and data center sectors shared how they draw on energy efficiency technologies, business practices, and partnerships to save money on utility bills, create new jobs, and improve their organization’s competitiveness. From this summit Savage took away tons of ideas and knowledge on how we can play a part in creating a better, cleaner, more energy efficient world by tackling our own energy use. By tracking, analyzing, and decreasing our energy use we hope to decrease our energy use by 20% over the next ten years. The first thing we have done to decrease energy usage, our low hanging fruit was to actually decrease our lighting. We disable 384 light bulbs and are now tracking our usage decrease. Second, we are replacing and standardizing all of our nozzles and hose for the air lines. These may seem like small things, but we hope to continue to find the low hanging fruit as we begin into the third step. Next we will become compliant with ISO 50001:2011, Energy management systems – Requirements with guidance for use, is a voluntary International Standard developed by ISO (International Organization for Standardization).ISO 50001 gives organizations the requirements for energy management systems EnMS). ISO 50001 provides benefits for organizations large and small, in both public and private sectors, in manufacturing and services, in all regions of the world. ISO 50001 will establish a framework for industrial plants; commercial, institutional, and governmental facilities; and entire organizations to manage energy. Targeting broad applicability across national economic sectors, it is estimated that the standard could influence up to 60 % of the world’s energy use. We are excited to focus on energy efficiency and do our part to leaving the world a better place for our children.
