Constellation provides energy efficiency revamp to Baltimore Convention Center

Baltimore, July 16, 2012 — Constellation, a business unit of Exelon, and the Baltimore Convention Center announced an energy performance contract to install about $10 million in water and energy conservation measures.

Under the terms of the EPC, the water conservation and energy efficiency improvements provided by Constellation require no upfront capital from Baltimore Convention Center and are guaranteed to provide about $18 million in cost savings over a 15-year period. Baltimore Convention Center will use the guaranteed savings from the conservation measures to fund the project.

By implementing water and energy conservation measures, Baltimore Convention Center expects to conserve an estimated 100 million gallons of water and avoid the creation of 6,058 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually over the next 15 years.

The conservation measures installed by Constellation include: energy efficient LED lighting and lighting controls; HVAC repairs and controls upgrades; thermal blankets on steam valves and fittings; low-flow toilets and faucets; building envelopment improvements such as caulking and weather stripping; and installation of a "cool roof" membrane to reflect heat.
