The Luminary Awards recognize companies, organizations, communities, and individuals across Newfoundland and Labrador who are taking brilliant steps to use energy wisely – and inspiring others to do the same. The Big Award acknowledges a participant that, through energy efficient upgrades, has seen the most significant increase in their energy savings.
Atlantic Place installed Ecopilot® in November of 2020, with a goal to make a positive impact on the environment. “Reducing energy consumption and working toward a sustainable environment is an important mission for us, now, more than ever,” says Charlie Oliver, Martek CEO.
Atlantic Place is a 355,000 square feet office and retail space and one of the largest buildings in downtown St. John’s, Newfoundland. This year alone, the company reduced HVAC energy consumption by 16.6%, over 1,000,000 KWh, equating to over $107,000.00 in energy savings.
“It’s a proud moment for our team to see clients, like Atlantic Place, be recognized for the tremendous work they’re doing to reduce energy use,” says Jennie King, General Manager, EcoPilot Canada | USA. “They’re a shining example of what’s achievable using advanced technology.”
