Industrial
Background
 When the Calgary Herald published the story onthe SolarWall
 ® 
installation at three municipal busgarages, the article was headed by the followingstatement: “Say Kyoto three times fast and whatdo you get? SolarWall.”The humorous opener is designed to draw aconnection between CO

reductions and thetechnological solutions that will deliver them. Andit is fitting that in the heart of oil country, the Cityof Calgary realized that the Kyoto-based emissionreductions actually represented an opportunity toincrease energy efficiency and save money. Thecity had initially allocated $100 million to reducetheir CO

emissions, but because of the costeffectiveness of technologies in existence, theyended up spending only half that amount onupgrading municipal facilities.The upgrades were carried out through an energyperformance contract with Siemens BuildingTechnology. This innovative cooperativepartnership provides for upgrading theinfrastructure and improving the energy efficiencyand comfort levels within buildings. Theimprovements are financed by future energy costsavings. This means that over the course of thecontract, the city will incur a net cost of zero.Three of Calgary Transit’s bus garages wereselected to be upgraded and retrofitted withSolarWall
