This project won a highly competitive energy efficiency grant from the Maryland Energy Administration.

Pharmacopeia Convention sets standards for pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements. The not-for-profit organization aimed to upgrade its laboratories and reduce their operating costs.

Before: USP had Constant Air Volume (CAV) fume hoods and snorkel exhausts in 19 laboratories scattered over 2 buildings.

After: The upgraded VAV systems remain very safe, utility costs are reduced, and the infrastructure is more manageable.

“TEL delivered the energy benefits they promised while improving the building infrastructure. They did a great job.”
