Success Story

Energy Trust of Oregon, Portland

Demonstrating energy efficiency in a renovated space

At Energy Trust, we’re committed to staying on the leading edge of energy efficiency and using resources wisely.

That’s why we used the same strategies when renovating our 120-year-old office in Portland’s Lincoln Building, using the latest lighting technology, innovative spatial arrangements and sustainable features that make the most of available energy resources. As a result, the third-floor office earned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold certification.

“We pursued cutting-edge lighting system technologies and sustainable design treatments to showcase the wide range of choices available for office renovations,” said Steve Lacey, director of operations, Energy Trust. “We’re pleased that the result is a space that works well for occupants and demonstrates solutions for visitors.”

From advanced lighting products, fixtures and controls to daylight-harvesting solutions, our renovation showcases lighting design technologies and other measures anyone can implement in an office or residence. Our renovation also included energy-efficient measures that keep our space—including computers, copiers, appliances, heating and cooling systems and plumbing—running smoothly, without wasting resources.
