Ameresco Inc. has partnered with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to develop and implement strategic energy infrastructure upgrades at NARA-owned and -managed facilities throughout the U.S.

As part of an Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC), Ameresco and NARA have developed a strategic plan to reduce energy use and operating costs at NARA's flagship Archives I and Archives II facilities in Washington, D.C., and College Park, Md., respectively. In addition, the two organizations are collaborating on energy infrastructure improvements at 13 presidential libraries across the country.

Among other efforts, NARA has completed three different phases with Ameresco to design and install over 104 kW of roof-mounted photovoltaic arrays at multiple locations. In addition, as part of a combination roof management green initiative, NARA has a new white roof with 26 additional kilowatts of solar PV under construction as a prototype for future roof replacements.
