Science Museum of Minnesota Honored with Energy Efficiency Leader Award from Trane, Grant from Ingersoll Rand Foundation
2018/02/06

February 5, 2018
The Science Museum of Minnesota in St. Paul is one of the most visited museums in the upper Midwest and is a national leader in providing informal science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. It’s also an organization with a genuine commitment to energy efficiency, and this makes it a perfect recipient of the year’s first Energy Efficiency Leader Award (EELA) from Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand.

Each year, Trane and Ingersoll Rand choose organizations for this special award who demonstrate an outstanding commitment to implementing best practices in energy efficiency and sustainability. The museum won the EELA for its recent collaboration with Trane on a project to lower the building’s carbon footprint and reduce energy cost. Selected upgrades included chillers designed to lessen environmental impact, as well as a building automation system and lighting systems that would optimize building management. The project exceeded expectations by surpassing its original goal of 75 percent of hot water heat savings since installation and by decreasing the amount of energy supply used in the community. In the future, the implemented smart design practices and energy efficient systems are also projected to save the museum more than $300,000 in operating costs year-over-year.
