Aneresco
Date: 2021-12-20
Framingham, Mass.-based renewable energy and energy efficiency service firm Ameresco, Inc., is reporting its partnership with Merthyr Tydfil Council in Wales on a £1.09 million energy conservation project.

Known as the former "Iron Capital of the World", Merthyr Tydfil is transforming itself into a modern commercial hub and smart city. With the help of Ameresco, the city council will look to provide solutions across the council's 31 sites, including upgrades to the town's aging infrastructure, optimizing the lifespan of the existing equipment, installing nine solar pv systems and 30 LED lighting upgrades, and implementing smart heating and hot water systems.

Upon completions in March, 2022, the project is expected to save the city £136,000 from its annual energy cost of £1.2 million and reduce carbon emissions from buildings by 251 tpy. The project also marks progress toward Merthyr Tydfil's goal of reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2030, as outlined by the Welsh government.

Colorado Mtn. College Solar+ Storage Project Announced (Ind. Report)
AMeresco
Date: 2021-04-09
Framingham, Mass.-based renewable energy and energy efficiency specialist Ameresco is reporting a partnership with Glenwood Springs, Colorado-headquartered Holy Cross Energy (HCE) for a solar and battery energy storage project at Colorado Mountain College's Spring Valley Campus.

Under the agreement, Ameresco will install, maintain and own 4.5MW of solar PV and 15 MWh battery energy storage and sell the generated output to HCE under a long-term PPA.

The project's avoided annual greenhouse gas emissions are expected to be 6,853 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent, which equates to the emissions benefit of removing 1,481 passenger vehicles from the road, or not burning 7,551,050 pounds of coal.

Holy Cross Energy aims to source 100 pct of its electricity from renewable resources by 2030.

Duke Energy,Ameresco,Fort Bragg
Date: 2020-09-30
In North Carolina, Charlotte-based Duke Energy is reporting it expects to begin construction on a 1.1-MW floating solar facility on Big Muddy Lake at the U.S. Army's Fort Bragg military base. The solar array will be paired with a 2-MW battery energy storage system and supplement power to the military installation from the local grid, providing backup power during electric service outages.

Duke Energy's prime contractor Ameresco will construct the facility, while Fort Bragg will own and operate the system once construction is completed. The project is part of Duke Energy's $36 million energy services contract with Fort Bragg.

Duke Energy owns 40 solar facilities in NC, including the 80-MW Conetoe Solar Facility in Edgecombe County, the 65-MW Warsaw Solar Facility in Duplin County and the 60-MW Monroe Solar Facility in Union County.
