Show-Stopping Energy Savings

When it comes to your bottom line, reducing energy use can be a real show-stopper.

Investing in energy-saving improvements can help you control costs, improve patron comfort and reduce maintenance. We give you a front row seat to savings, with expert advice, resources and energy-saving programs tailored to your needs.


Each year, the entertainment industry spends approximately $4.6 billion on energy to operate facilities that host a variety of events1. Strategic energy management and energy-saving investments can reduce energy use and control operating costs. Many operations are trimming costs and improving comfort by installing energy-efficient lighting, HVAC systems, chillers, water heating and refrigeration. Others are installing renewable energy systems, such as solar PV, solar hot water, and fuel cells, which help lower and stabilize your energy costs over the long term, while reducing reliance on fossil fuels and avoiding impacts on our health and environment.

The following building types in the entertainment sector are good candidates to save energy:

  • Stadiums and arenas
  • Convention centers
  • Theaters/performing arts centers
  • Museums and art galleries
  • Fitness centers
  • Golf courses/country clubs
  • Amusement parks
