JCPenney Teams Up With DOE to Increase Energy Efficiency in VA Store

Posted By Administration, Friday, May 11, 2012

JCPenney recently participated in the U.S. Department of Energy's Commercial Building Partnerships(CBP), an initiative that is transforming the country's energy landscape by demonstrating the best ways to achieve dramatic energy savings in commercial buildings. This CBP initiative partners programs, companies and organizations with DOE representatives, national laboratory staff and private-sector technical experts to explore energy saving ideas and strategies.

JCPenney worked with the Pacific Northwest Laboratory to identify energy efficiency design measures that could be applied to store locations across the country. One of the first stores to receive these upgrades was an existing building already in need of some major renovations – a one-story, 107,000 square foot building in Colonial Heights, VA.

The design team on the project took an integrated approach to maximize energy savings. For the building envelope, the team chose to use polyisocyanurate insulation during roof replacement. The benefits from using this insulation were significant enough that JCPenney will now consider adding additional insulation to future reroofing projects at all locations. Energy savings from the total package are expected to be 45% as compared to the store's energy use in the past.

This case study underscores the energy saving potential of polyiso insulation and, here at PIMA, we are excited that the design team chose to use polyiso insulation and even more excited that JCPenney has seen significant benefits since its implementation.

To learn more about the project, take a look at the ASHRAE website.
