The Port of Seattle, which manages both Seattle’s seaport and the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, has set one of its Century Agenda goals to be the greenest and most energy efficient port in North America.Energy conservation is a major part of the Port’s strategy to achieve that goal; the Port intends to meet all increased energy needs through the use of conservation and renewable resources.Even before the Century Agenda was created, the Port recognized the value of energy conservation for cost savings and sustainability.Both the Airport and Seaport have implemented a wide variety of conservation projects, including projects to reduce energy use in HVAC, lighting and industrial systems.Controls, commissioning, and Port codes are used to increase energy conservation, as are electrical and mechanical systems retrofits.First-year savings total over 64 million kilowatt-hours.Cumulative savings from these projects over the last 20 years are in excess of 500,000 MWh - equivalent to about three years’ worth of consumption by the entire Port.
