October 31, 2023 – Ameresco Inc. is leading an energy efficiency project at Schaeffler Aerospace Canada Inc. (Stratford, Ont.) that aims to generate savings of about 1180 MWh and 29,650 m3 of natural gas, and reduce GHG emissions by 15%.

“With the launch of this new partnership, we want to show that we’re resolutely committed to maximizing sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint,” said Schaeffler’s Brad Dineley. “The new energy efficiency solutions will not only provide some significant improvements to our indoor environment, but will also put us on the path toward helping us meet the ambitious environmental goals we set for ourselves.”

Commencing in April 2023, the project will see the installation of a high-efficiency chiller and boiler system to serve new air-handling units at the plant. The air-handling units are replacing five aging DX cooling/gas heating units, and are equipped with chilled water cooling, hot water heating, and variable speed fans.

“What’s unique about the project is the significant improvement it will bring to the building’s indoor air quality, comfort, energy efficiency, and cost savings,” said Bob McCullough, president, Ameresco Canada.


The project will also update the existing building automation system to integrate control of the new high-efficiency HVAC equipment.

“Our team will work closely with Schaeffler’s team to ensure minimal disruption during the installation process, and ensure that the new systems are fully optimized for maximum performance.” McCullough added.
