SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy management applications and services, announced today at Greenbuild International Conference and Expo that is has helped the Moscone Center achieve the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED Gold certification. With this achievement, the Moscone Center has become the first convention center on the west coast to attain the green building honor and also has become San Francisco's largest municipally-owned green building. EnerNOC was honored to serve as the Commissioning Authority for this important project and deliver energy savings recommendations that contributed to the LEED Gold rating.
"EnerNOC takes great pride in congratulating the Moscone Center staff and the entire design/build team for their industry-leading achievement in reaching LEED Gold," said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. "LEED certification provides tangible value to property owners – the operational efficiencies achieved translate to reduced energy and maintenance costs, and often lead to happier, more productive occupants. We are pleased to see the Moscone Center being recognized for its forward-thinking investments in energy efficiency."
Commissioning is a quality assurance process of establishing, verifying and documenting that the performance of new buildings and their subsystems achieve the owner's operational requirements. This process starts in the design phase and continues into initial occupancy. EnerNOC was engaged by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) in early 2011 and has worked closely with all vendors to ensure a successful and sustainable result. EnerNOC not only commissioned the new building systems installed as part of the $56 million Tenant Improvements project but also identified areas for improvement in the building's existing systems. "Identifying and repairing non-functioning components of the mechanical and lighting systems in conjunction with the CIP upgrades will ensure that Moscone Center achieves significantly improved operational efficiency and reduced operating costs," said Masoud Vafaei, SFPUC's Program Manager.
Through these and other improvements resulting from EnerNOC's EfficiencySMART Commissioning work, Moscone Center was able to garner a number of additional LEED points, surpassing the 75 points required for LEED Gold certification. The Moscone Center also reached high performance in sustainable site development, water savings, materials selection, and indoor air quality.
