ENERGY STAR Success Story: Busch Stadium, St. Louis Cardinals
On April 10, 2006, the Cardinals opened their new 46,000-seat retro-style ballpark, Busch Stadium, in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. That year, the Cardinals became the first team in almost 100 years to win a World Series Championship in the inaugural season of a new ballpark. As the baseball team was winning the championship, the ballpark energy management team was fine-tuning the operations at the new ballpark, and even with a brand new stadium, they were able to optimize the stadium’s systems, achieving energy savings of more than 20 percent in the first two years after its inaugural season. Find out how in this two-page success story.
