2000 Awards

DOE Organizational Energy/Energy Efficiency Management Award

In March 2000, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) initiated a campaign to recommission its buildings and restructure building operations to run more effectively, efficiently, and environmentally. Energy saving strategies included fine-tuning the HVAC system, adjusting temperatures, and implementing more night setbacks. Savings from this no-cost campaign were 23 billion Btu of energy - 61,632 therms of natural gas, and 5 million kilowatt hours of electricity - compared with energy consumption for March through December 2000. PNNL thus avoided more than $180,000 in expected energy costs.  (announced 12/20/2000)

In 2000, PNNL was awarded a White House Closing the Circle Award for it' s Community Outreach efforts. "PNNL Commits to Help the Community Prevent Pollution," FROM the Office OF Federal Environmental Executive.  (announced 12/20/2000)

Federal Energy Efficiency/Energy Management Award to Small Groups

In 2000, the U.S. DOE Federal Interagency Energy Policy Committee presented an Energy Efficiency/Energy Management Award to Small Groups award to PNNL for saving $96,000 annually by retuning two large PNNL leased office buildings (the ETB and the NSB Buildings, 200,000 total square feet). Most of the savings were achieved through low-cost recommissioning activities such as resetting heating/cooling equipment schedules and temperatures, and repairing carbon dioxide sensors. The group members were Todd Garlick, Don Hadley, Darrell Hatley, Jeff Lettau, and Ron Underhill.  (announced 12/20/2000)

Federal Energy Efficiency/Energy Management Award to Small Groups

In 2000, the U.S. Department of Energy Federal Interagency Energy Policy Committee presented an Energy Efficiency/Energy Management Award to Small Groups award to a Fort Lewis team that included several PNNL staff for an innovative user awareness campaign that saved 3% of the site''s gas and electricity. The PNNL team members were Don Hadley, Regina Lundgren, Elizabeth Malone, and Andrea McMakin.  (announced 12/20/2000)
