Great Wolf Lodge partnered with Dalkia, a building energy solutions provider to develop an end-to-end building energy plan, implementation and support for a range of energy improvements for the the company’s resort in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. The plan included building energy software, LED lighting improvements, water conservation devices, HVAC upgrades, and on-site electricity generation with a combined heat and power (CHP) unit. Once these improvements were in place, Great Wolf Lodge New England immediately began to realize savings on electricity, natural gas, and water bills.
Similar efficiency projects were initiated at nine other Great Wolf Lodge resorts across the US. Thus far, Dalkia’s efficiency upgrades has saved 11,211,938 kWh of electricity. The energy cost-cutting impacts of Dalkia’s work is projected to provide $1.3 million in savings for Great Wolf Lodge, along with a 10% reduction in carbon intensity of their operations its first year of deployment.

The KBC service follows on the heels of Singapore's Energy Conservation Act mandating large industrial emitters to report greenhouse gas emissions from 2021.
The KBC measures will help Singapore achieve its pledge under the Paris Agreement on climate change to reduce emissions intensity by 36 pct from 2005 levels by 2030.
The industrial sector currently accounts for about 60 pct of Singapore's GHG emissions, according to the National Environmental Agency.

Igloo Energy received a £900,000 Thermal Efficiency Innovation Fund grant from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), as part of the Thermal Efficiency Innovation Fund -- a government led scheme investing up to £10 million to develop technologies and approaches to increase energy efficiency across the UK.
The grant will fund a two year project to further develop Igloo's software that identifies suitable energy efficient upgrades for customers' homes. The research will analyze customers' energy consumption using insights gained from interacting with customers and datasets that describe the homes we live in, the appliances we own and how we use them, as well as other available household data. As a result, Igloo will be able to understand the value to each customer of installing smart energy efficiency measures and provide each individual customer highly personalised recommendations to make it easier for them to reduce bills and therefore help the UK improve the energy efficiency of its housing stock.
Separately, Igloo Energy has also scored a £120,000 grant by InnovateUK to support the understanding of existing data to create more confident insights into customers energy consumption.
