New Orleans Cold Storage Teams With Cascade Energy -- A Successful, Single-Facility Pilot Program Grows Into a Company-Wide Energy Efficiency Initiative

Cost Savings From Energy Management Services Provided by Cascade at One Facility Were So Significant That New Orleans Is Taking the Strategy Company Wide, Expecting to Achieve 12% Savings in the Fifth Year of the Program

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - August 11, 2014) - Cascade Energy today announced an agreement with New Orleans Cold Storage (NOCS), the oldest cold storage company in North America, to maximize energy efficiency at multiple sites. Cascade's energy management services will help reduce facility energy consumption by an estimated 12% by the fifth year of the program.

"Energy is typically the second highest cost for big industrial companies. NOCS is taking an aggressive and comprehensive approach to energy management," said Cascade Energy Senior Engineer and Director of Customer Engagement, Josh Bachman. "We'll work with the NOCS team to build a long-term, ongoing strategy that will help control and significantly reduce their energy spend."

NOCS CEO Mark Blanchard was inspired by the results from a pilot project Cascade completed at NOCS' Jourdan Road site that delivered $160k in cost savings in the first year. "Mark has been a great supporter of our work," Bachman commented, "we're looking forward to supporting the growth of their energy program through a combination of measurement, benchmarking, tune-ups, capital projects, as well as on-site training and technical support."

Cascade's energy management services provide organizations with the tools and on-going support required to reduce energy consumption at industrial facilities, without embarking on expensive capital projects. A key component is the facility "tune-up," which delivers cost-effective savings through an operations and maintenance approach. Tune-ups are applied either to an entire facility or to specific systems, such as refrigeration, compressed air and boiler systems. Cascade ensures that energy savings are maintained and that additional opportunities for efficiency are pursued by providing regular technical support following the tune-up. Progress is tracked via Cascade's proprietary energy tracking software and efficiency platform, SENSEI®, which Cascade designed to help drive continuous energy improvement.
