RESTON, Va. and WORCESTER, Mass., Nov. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The U.S. General Services Administration Energy Division today announced it has received a 2013 Federal Energy and Water Management Award for its demand response auctions – a project administered by World Energy Solutions (Nasdaq:XWES) and Leidos (NYSE:LDOS).
In January 2012, the GSA Energy Division, World Energy and Leidos ran the first forward auctions for demand response services by a Federal agency. The contracts awarded as a result of these auctions are expected to generate revenues of at least $1.5 million for the GSA and Department of Veterans Affairs, which can be re-invested into further energy efficiency and facility improvement projects.
The Award specifically names GSA's Linda Collins and Daniel Morrison, World Energy's Luke McAuliffe, and Leidos' Chris McCall for their work on the project.
The U.S. Department of Energy sponsors the Federal Energy and Water Management Awards, which honor individuals, groups, and agencies for the outstanding use of energy- and water-efficiency technologies at Federal facilities.
