Electric TV Showcases NECA & IBEW Partnership with CBEI

Electric TV Showcases NECA & IBEW Partnership with CBEI

Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 07, 2014

The latest video from Electric TV is the second in a series on green energy solutions taking place at the Philadelphia Naval Yards large scale urban renewal project. The Philly Navy Yard, once a major shipbuilding facility for the U.S. Navy, has been selected as a research site for the purpose of experimentation, research and testing of new green energy power solutions in real-world situations, as well as a showcase for these exciting new residential and commercial energy solutions. The project is being carried out by a partnership of private businesses, the Pennsylvania State University and the NECA-IBEW team (the National Electrical Contractors Association and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers).

The new video covers an exciting new phase of the project which is focused on retrofitting commercial properties with the latest in green energy saving technologies. The majority of small and mid-sized businesses operate out of smaller building structures which make up 95% of the commercial buildings in the United States. When it comes to commercial energy retrofit projects with the latest green energy technologies, these smaller (and often older) structures get overlooked. Furthermore, worldwide revenue for those companies involved in energy management solutions for these types of buildings is projected to grow by almost 500 percent over the next eight years.

ETV's latest video documentary focuses on how the Consortium for Building Energy Innovation (CBEI) is leading the way toward retrofitting these smaller buildings in ways that result in real energy efficiency cost savings as well as profitability. The objective is that of reducing commercial energy consumption by half over the next fifteen years. The CBEI, will soon move into new headquarters at the Philly Navy Yard, which will represent an alliance of major universities, industries and research laboratories across the nation.


Planning a world class example of green engineering takes innovation, real world knowledge, and a practical, nuts-and-bolts mindset to build. This is where NECA and the IBEW come into the picture, helping to realize the CBEI vision and putting these alternative energy ideas into tangible, everyday practice. These organizations aren't newcomers to the Navy Yard projects they've been on the job almost since the beginning. Often, the electrical workers have had to come up with solutions on the spot when assembling and installing these cutting-edge devices.

But that's the job they've been hired to do and they're good at it. One member of IBEW Local 98, while working on an integrated energy management system at the Navy Yard, told ETV, We the electricians took everything the engineer had and we had to adapt everything with our means and methods to install it for this particular facility.

ABOUT ELECTRIC TV: Electric TV, produced by Oswego Creative of Golden, Colorado, is a project sponsored by NECA-IBEW with the objective of educating the general public and raising awareness on the topics of green energy technology and the contributions of these organizations.
