Driving Energy Efficiency in Class A Buildings

jll77 West Wacker Drive, the old headquarters for United Airlines, was one of the first buildings to join EDF’s Chicago Building Energy Initiative. EDF Climate Corps fellow Karan Gupta is working with real estate giant Jones Lang LaSalle to take a deep dive into energy efficiency at this 50-story office building. Together, they have identified an energy reduction goal of 5M kWh by 2018; 2M kWh of which has been uncovered during the 2014 fellowship.
