John W. Odell, Director
The City Energy and Asset Management Division is responsible for administering the City's multi-million dollar Energy Savings Performance Contract. Additionally, EAM's goal is maximizing energy and asset efficiencies while enhancing the beauty and functionality of the most publically frequented city facilities, including: City Hall, the Worcester Public Library buildings and facilities (excluding school branches), Union Station, DCU Center, Senior Center and Department of Inspectional Services.
The long-term goal of the Division is to improve the efficiencies of all City facilities and promote sustainable practices in all City functions.
This can be accomplished by:
Over the last 10+ years, Worcester has led by example by significantly improving the energy efficiency and dramatically increasing renewable energy production of its municipal facilities.
A number of the City's sustainability efforts, including legislative and policy initiatives, led to Worcester's designation as one of the first "Green Communities" in the State. Worcester was one of 35 Massachusetts municipalities to be designated a Green Community in 2010.
Worcester committed to reducing its municipal energy use by 20% from the FY2009 baseline. The City is making progress towards this goal primarily via its Energy Savings Performance Contract as shown on the accompanying chart.
Total Energy Use Change: 7.1% Reduction from FY09 - FY19
