5 february 2013
Boston, MA. — SourceOne, a nationally recognized energy consulting firm and a subsidiary of Veolia Energy North America, today announced its partnership with ENERGY STAR.  As anENERGY STAR Partner, SourceOne strengthens its core value proposition and fundamental commitment to protect the environment.  SourceOne’s voluntary partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR will offer a unique opportunity to help its clients improve the energy efficiency and performance of their facilities.  SourceOne supports an organization-wide energy management approach to both preserve the environment and help its clients reach their operational and financial goals.  SourceOne serves a broad client base, including biotechnology-pharmaceutical companies, data centers, municipal agencies, hospitals, universities, and real estate investment trusts (REIT).

“As an expert in energy management and energy efficiency, SourceOne is excited to offer our customers another energy management tool that they can leverage to reduce carbon output and save money,” said Chris Barros, P.E., SourceOne Vice President and General Manager of Energy Management. “As a technology-and-manufacturer-neutral energy management firm, SourceOne offers solutions that fit our customer’s business model and specific needs.  This partnership with ENERGY STAR gives us another tool to help support our customers across a broad range of industries.”

As an ENERGY STAR Partner, SourceOne is committed to sharing the benefits of energy efficiency with the community, and helping to implement appropriate energy efficiency measures.  In partnership with ENERGY STAR, SourceOne is helping its clients to:
  • Measure and track the energy performance of their facilities at various locations.
  • Set a goal to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings by 10 percent or more, in support of the ENERGY STAR Challenge.
By reducing its clients’ energy consumption by 10 percent, a typical SourceOne client can save approximately $2.5 Million and 25 million kWh each year – the equivalent energy required to power about 4,000 American homes.  The achievement of these savings would reduce air pollution by preventing approximately 170,000 tons of carbon dioxide equivalents from being released into the atmosphere – the equivalent of removing more than 33,000 vehicles from the road.
