The goal of the installation was to make the Department more energy efficient. The Department committed to U.S. innovation and technology at its facilities to save taxpayer dollars, paving the way for a cleaner and more sustainable energy future.

“Showcasing cost-effective innovative sustainability solutions at our facilities around the world is an important – and tangible – way to demonstrate U.S. policy and economic priorities,” said Van Dyke.  “It is also one avenue for us to modernize our physical and information technology infrastructure to help ensure security and operational resiliency.”
