ACEC/MA Announces Arup as a 2021 Engineering Bronze Excellence Award Winner
Arup wins for their work on the MA DOER Energy Resilience Study
By: PR First
The Massachusetts DOER established key initiatives aiming at enhancing energy resiliency through the deployment of clean energy technologies and strategies protecting communities from energy service interruptions during severe weather events. Arup was selected as DOER's consultant to perform a study identifying opportunities where clean energy technologies could be used to increase the energy resilience at twelve critical care facilities around the Commonwealth, thereby reducing the likelihood of prolonged outages during extreme weather events. The study's approach looked at both resiliency and clean energy, providing operational redundancy and moving away from fossil fuels and reducing GHG emissions.
