Use resources wisely

Focusing on energy and sustainability can make communities stronger.

Civic leaders are constantly challenged to use financial, environmental and physical resources responsibly, stretching to create vibrant communities. Our collaboration with the public sector uses an integrated approach to leveraging buildings as a resource for creating stand-out communities; places that are financially stronger, focused on sustainability, and adaptable and resilient during adversity and change.

Our goal was to get the chiller down to 10 percent capacity; we watched them get it down to 5 percent. We were able to buy fewer chillers with more tonnage. It was more efficient, less costly, and we now have open space for storage or to rent.

Let's work together to shape your community's future

What’s blocking progress on energy and sustainability goals? We can help bring stakeholders together to encourage collaboration and inspire innovation. We’ll help you assess opportunities and prioritize projects to deliver the maximum impact. Certain financing methods can help you move forward without an initial capital outlay; for example, Trane Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs) are a proven financial tool that provides a budget-neutral path to energy resilience and facility upgrades. With no capital investment required, upgrading inefficient HVAC systems, building controls and modernizing aging building infrastructure is paid for with future energy cost savings – savings that are guaranteed by Trane. Documented post-project results can guide future dialog and keep the momentum going.

Accelerate change with an integrated approach

Our holistic approach to energy performance means we see opportunities for improvement everywhere: in government buildings, wastewater management plants, data centers, and in community centers.

Leveraging Connected Building technologies delivers ongoing results, driving efficiencies, giving you control and preparing you for the future.

Make sustainability a shared priority

Citizens are passionate about sustainability and it’s up to community leaders to act on those interests. Energy projects are reducing the energy intensity of the world, yet there’s a lot more work to be done. Trane has broad capabilities in making towns and cities more sustainable. Implementing renewable energy is a common first step. Some communities are installing distributed energy resources to provide off-grid energy. Others are purchasing more renewable energy directly from local utilities or through virtual power purchase agreements (VPPA). We can help you make the best choices for your community, and then turn the plans into reality. 

Bolster resilience and reduce risk

If the grid shuts down, you need restore power to critical systems fast. We can help you implement a contingency plan which, depending on priorities, can mean many different things: establishing a microgrid that runs on renewable energy, incorporating thermal energy storage to provide temporary backup cooling, or installing temporary power generators. We can assess areas of risk and build a plan for resiliency. 

Ready for now. Resilient for tomorrow.

As you prepare to reopen your buildings,  we recognize you have a lot of questions. Indoor air quality suddenly matters more than ever. Energy efficiency and sustainability have always mattered. But improving and enhancing building performance requires experience and hands-on expertise. We turn insights and data into an action plan you can move on immediately. So you can plan to reopen your building with confidence— and make it more resilient for tomorrow.
