Kaeser Compressors says its recent partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star program reflects its belief in providing efficient, energy-saving compressed air products. The company intends to leverage this partnership to communicate the importance of energy management to the industrial marketplace and to increase energy savings in the coming years.
According to the EPA, Energy Star helped Americans save about $16 billion on their 2007 energy bills while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by an amount equivalent to those generated by 27 million vehicles.
To further coincide with its energy goals, the company will use a Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO) roof at its new headquarters, which is currently under construction in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Unlike other roof materials, TPO reflects sunlight rather than absorbing it. Other elements in the headquarters’ design, including air-distribution and lighting systems, will reduce the amount of energy required to heat, cool and illuminate the building.
