Energy Conservation

Utilize energy conservation through management practices and infrastructure improvements, including renewable energy strategies.

Internal Culture: 

Energy smart practices are brought to staff via education.

Our building contains a 1.65 MW rooftop solar array (16% of Salt Palace’s annual power), a building automation system that guides preventative maintenance and improvement decisions, and over 90% LED lighting inventory.

We track consumption, set goals, and assess goal achievement on an annual basis. Since 2008, we have reduced our annual energy footprint by over 38% (reducing fossil fuel usage by over 7 million kilowatts/year).

Renewable energy and efficiency have cut 16,141 metric tons of CO2. This equals 40 million car miles not driven.


External Partnerships: 

We work with event clients on energy management plans and best practices for their event, such as implementing a power-down policy for exhibits.

We enforce policies during move-in/move-out such as no escalator usage, HVAC usage, and 50% reduced lighting. Event energy use is included in sustainability reporting.


New Targets: 

We are close to full LED, but the Salt Palace ballroom is a challenge due to dated infrastructure. We are committed to finding a solution.

We want to improve energy estimates and tracking for events so that clients can set specific and measurable goals prior to their show and assess achievements.

We are trying to achieve 100% renewable energy by 2030 (with a mix of onsite and renewable energy purchasing agreements).
