ENERGY EFFICIENCY / WATER / WASTE
ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Sony Pictures has a comprehensive Energy Management System(EMS) for the Culver CIty sites.
In order to monitor and track electricity usage at various facilities, Sony Pictures has installed a series of sub-meters to collect data and utilize analytics to develop energy efficiency plans and to measure effectiveness.
Sony Pictures continues to expand its central plant on the Studio Lot to incorporate additional buildings and increase resource efficiency.
Energy efficiency projects are continually implemented, including lighting controls, LED exit signs, LED work lights, HVAC optimization, and lighting retrofit in office buildings, stages and parking structures.
Launched in early 2020, Sony Pictures' new solar panels across 8 sound stages including Stage 30 are expected to generate 58 million kilowatt hours of solar power over the next 25 years. That is equivalent to the emissions of over 9,000 passenger cars in one year! Combined with the existing 1.83 megawatts of solar already generated on the lot, the onsite power will account for approximately 8 percent of the studio's electricity use. The source of clean electricity will support Sony Pictures’ sustainability goals. Click for Press Release
