Energy conservation measures coming to Balto. Convention Center

The Baltimore Convention Center expects to save $18 million in energy costs over 15 years because of water and energy conservation renovations it announced Monday.

Constellation, a division of energy provider Exelon Corp., will install the efficiency measures, according to a joint statement from the energy company and the convention center.

Although the conservation efforts — along with other capital improvements planned for the center — come with a $10 million price tag, no money is required up front from the convention center, the statement said. The money saved by making the convention center more efficient will pay for the upgrades, the joint statement said.

The conservation efforts will include the installation of a roofing membrane that reflects heat, improved insulation, the installation of energy-efficient lighting, HVAC repairs, and the installation of low-flow toilets and faucets. The work should be complete by early next year, the statement said.
