Fortune Magazine names Johnson Controls to 2018 Change the World list
Performance Infrastructure and Distributed Energy Storage recognized for University of Hawai‘i project
Helping the University of Hawai‘i Maui College move toward generating 100 percent renewable energy on site has earned Johnson Controls a #30 ranking on the 2018 Fortune Magazine Change the World list.
This year’s list recognizes 63 businesses and six “rising stars” whose core activities create positive social impact. It focuses on companies with annual revenues of $1 billion or more and bases rankings on four factors:
- Measurable impact on one or more societal problems
- Business results, with profitability and shareholder value creation outweighing benefits to reputation
- Innovation relative to others in the industry
- Integration of the initiative in the company’s strategy and communications
Our solar + distributed energy battery storage solution will help the University of Hawai’i generate more than $79 million in savings across five campuses. By 2019, the UH Maui College campus will be one of the first campuses in the U.S. with the ability to eliminate fossil fuel consumption. The project is one of the largest total behind-the-meter deployments of battery storage in the United States.
