Lineage Logistics Teams With Cascade Energy to Tackle Facility Energy Consumption

Partnership Builds on Cascade's Previous Work, Providing Energy Management Services to East and West Coast Refrigerated Warehouses

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - April 24, 2013) -  Cascade Energy today announced an agreement with Lineage Logistics, the second largest refrigerated warehouse and logistics provider in the industry, to maximize refrigeration system energy efficiency at multiple facilities. Cascade's energy management services will help reduce facility energy consumption by an estimated 10-15 percent, lowering resource utilization and costs.

"Lineage is taking both an aggressive and comprehensive approach to energy management," said Cascade Energy CEO Marcus Wilcox. "We'll work shoulder-to-shoulder with the Lineage team to strategically control utilization and costs that are second only to labor in the industry."

Cascade's energy management services provide organizations with the tools and on-going support required to reduce energy consumption at industrial facilities, without embarking on expensive capital projects. A key component is the facility "tune-up," which delivers cost-effective savings through an operations and maintenance approach. Tune-ups are applied either to an entire facility or to specific systems, such as refrigeration, compressed air and boiler systems. Cascade ensures that energy savings are maintained and that additional opportunities for efficiency are pursued by providing regular technical support following the tune-up. Progress is tracked via Cascade's proprietary energy tracking software and efficiency platform, SENSEI™, which is designed to help drive continuous energy optimization.

Prior to Lineage's rebranding a year ago, Cascade provided facility tune-ups and energy assessments for capital projects to several refrigerated warehouses in the Northwest that are now part of the Lineage network. Today, Cascade and Lineage are embarking on a new collaboration based on past success.

"Cascade Energy's reputation for deep, technical knowledge separated them from other service providers," said Neil O'Leary, Senior Director at Lineage. "A partnership with Cascade also fits our long-term commitment to energy efficiency. As we continue to grow, Lineage is focused on reducing its energy footprint and driving value from our sustainability efforts."

Cascade Energy is one of the largest companies in the nation dedicated to industrial energy efficiency. Cascade's projects save industrial companies around $125 million, and two billion kilowatt-hours per year. To date, the company has completed more than 3,000 projects across a variety of industries, including cold storage, foodservice distribution, food processing, agribusiness, oil and gas, pulp and paper, and general manufacturing. In the past five years Cascade has experienced four-fold growth and now employs over 90 professionals.
