Global megatrends—from the expected population surge to the scarcity of resources—are changing the way we design, construct, and operate critical structures and systems that will benefit society for the long term. Where the world sees challenges, we see engineering solutions.
Report Highlights Bechtel’s Groundbreaking Sustainability Work
Reston, Va., July 22, 2015 /3BL Media/ — Bechtel announced today the release of its annual Sustainability Report, showcasing projects and innovations that are delivering sustainable cities, fostering cleaner energy, and preserving scarce water resources worldwide.
In April 2012, the White House announced that the Defense Department was making one of the largest commitments to clean energy in history, by setting a goal to deploy 3 gigawatts of renewable energy — including solar, wind, biomass or geothermal — on Army, Navy and Air Force installations by 2025.
Siemens Government Technologies, Inc., the prime contractor, along with partners AECOM and Bechtel have been awarded four contracts to help the U.S. Army meet its goal of 1 gigawatt of that total — enough energy to power 250,000 homes.
