Red Cross Optimizes Power Usage

The American Red Cross will optimize the nonprofit’s electricity usage, reduce its carbon footprint, and evaluate the installation of distributed energy resources to save energy and improve resiliency.

The nonprofit will work with Blueprint Power, a services and technology platform that transforms buildings into flexible energy assets.

The program will kick off at three American Red Cross facilities in New York City, West Henrietta, New York, and Burlington, Vermont. These three sites are serving as a first step in helping the American Red Cross work towards decarbonizing its portfolio of hundreds of buildings, totaling 11 million sq. ft across the U.S.

Blueprint Power will install its DIGBOX® metering hardware at each location to collect detailed, real-time energy usage data. Blueprint’s platform and proprietary in-building analytics will then allow the Red Cross to visualize and identify ‘quick win’ site energy investments and energy management optimizations while supporting enhanced operational improvements and carbon reporting capabilities.

“We are committed to doing our part to help mitigate the climate crisis and reduce our environmental footprint,” said Noel Anderson, chief sustainability officer for the American Red Cross, in a statement. “Our work with Blueprint Power is an important step in analyzing and reducing our emissions.”
