CSX And Environmental Defense Fund Fellow Foster Innovation, Promote Energy Savings

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. , Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the fourth consecutive year, CSX participated in the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) Climate Corps, an innovative program that pairs MBA student "fellows" with leading companies to design and support programs that drive energy efficiency. This year's CSX fellow, Hanyan Wu from the Mason School of Business at the College of William & Mary, focused on solar energy opportunities and high-efficiency lighting projects across the company's network. Hanyan also helped spearhead a project that is on track to bring the city of Jacksonville some of its first electric vehicle charging stations.

"CSX never stops searching for new ways to increase energy savings and implement more efficient technologies," said Carl Gerhardstein, assistant vice president, health, environment and sustainability, CSX. "Year after year, our EDF fellows bring an invaluable outside perspective that helps keep CSX focused on sustainable, economical investments in our facilities and infrastructure."  

This year, Hanyan focused on the feasibility of solar photovoltaic technology at three locations across the CSX network, as well as optimal locations for future efficiency improvements and renewable energy projects. With the help of the CSX Public Safety, Health and Environment Department, he also explored the possibility of bringing the first electric vehicle charging stations to downtown Jacksonville in the coming months.

The proposed energy initiatives together would result in approximate savings of $240,000; 1,572 metric tons of carbon dioxide (the equivalent of 328 passenger vehicles); and 2 million kilowatt hours annually (enough to power 211 homes).

"We are proud to have found such a loyal partner in CSX," said Victoria Mills, managing director of EDF. "The company's commitment to the EDF Climate Corps program reflects its dedication to environmental stewardship, and opens up exciting opportunities for both CSX and the student fellows who work there."
