Many NFL stadiums are scoring big on energy savings and tackling waste at the same time—adding even more value to the game day experience:
“These iconic stadiums are using the most innovative technologies and strategies today to save energy and water,” said Jason Hartke of the Building Technologies Office, who spearheaded a recent U.S. Department of Energy report examining how sports teams and venues can save energy. “They’re not just demonstrating great leadership in efficiency, they’re spreading the word to millions of people across the country.”
NFL stadiums are some of the largest sport venues in America. Many of them are more than one million square feet and are in the top 0.1%, by size, of all U.S. commercial buildings. This means they require large amounts of operating energy—but also provide plenty of opportunities for savings.
