Earlier today at the SCTE SEMI (Smart Energy Management Initiative) Forum 2013 in Atlanta, Cox Executive Vice President/CTO Kevin Hart outlined his company’s multifaceted approach to energy management and conservation. One program — Cox Conserves — aims to reduce Cox Enterprises’ carbon footprint by 20 percent; the freestanding canopy solar array at its  headquarters now produces roughly 140,000 kWh of energy, cutting carbon emissions by 94 tons and providing shade for employees’ vehicles. In addition, Cox’s newly built CTech office building in Sandy Springs, Ga., was constructed using reflective roofing and pavement materials and low-flow fixtures that reduced water usage by 37 percent; 95 percent of the construction debris was recycled. Finally, Cox’s use of GPS has resulted in savings of more than 1 million gallons of fuel and a reduction of 25 million pounds of carbon-dioxide emissions.
