On Wednesday, Jan. 26, United Technologies opened the doors of its Hamilton Sundstrand plant in Windsor Locks to peer companies and suppliers to explain what works – and how – in cutting energy costs and consumption.  The U.S. Department of Energy cited United Technologies as an energy efficiency leader and executives from Carrier, Pratt & Whitney, Hamilton Sundstrand and Sikorsky will share success stories on energy efficiency and sustainability. 

The Save Energy Now LEADER showcase was held from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Hamilton Sundstrand in Windsor Locks.  The event featured guest speaker Paul Scheihing, of the U.S. Department of Energy Development and Deployment.  Attendees toured the Hamilton Sundstrand plant and received the Supplier Energy Management Guidebook – an industry first, which shares UTC best practices. 

In 2009, United Technologies joined the U.S. Department of Energy’s Save Energy Now initiative.  Over the past 20 years UTC has cut its energy use and reduced greenhouse gas emissions at its global facilities.
