National Institutes of Health Showcases UESCs

Through Utility Energy Service Contracts (UESCs), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that it has saved at least $5 million annually in energy costs at its main campus in Bethesda, Maryland—the world's largest medical research facility. These savings allow more agency funds to be spent directly on medical research.

Watch the video below to learn how energy managers at the NIH draw on the energy-saving resources offered by their local gas and electric utilities. Find out how your federal facility can also benefit from a UESC.
