World Energy Streamlines Strategic Procurement for World's Third Busiest
Airport; Online Auction Delivers Major Cost Savings, Fair and Transparent
DFW INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, TX and WORCESTER, MA, June 12 /CNW/ - World
Energy Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: XWES; TSX: XWE), an operator of online
exchanges for energy and green commodities, today announced Dallas/Fort Worth
International Airport (DFW), the world's third busiest airport, has
successfully executed a new electricity and green energy contract through the
World Energy Exchange(R).
World Energy conducted the competitive procurement event on May 26, 2009,
running multiple online auctions that provided DFW price discovery for various
product structures, term lengths, rates and mixes of traditional and green
energy. As a result, and supplemented by months of procurement process
expertise and market intelligence the firm provided, World Energy helped DFW
secure a term electricity contract for nearly 300,000,000 kWh annually,
beating its prior rate while adding 20% renewable energy to its mix. Delivery
begins March 1, 2010.
"Energy is an 8-figure annual investment at DFW," said Rusty Hodapp, LEED
AP Vice President, DFW International Airport. "We worked very closely with
World Energy on this strategic procurement and are delighted with the results.
In World Energy, we found an experienced partner who helped streamline our
complex procurement process and delivered a highly competitive event, one
marked by its fairness and transparency to all participating bidders."
Added Phil Adams, President and COO of World Energy: "Our successful
engagement with DFW International Airport is a major win for World Energy in
the State of Texas. We commend DFW for adopting a technology-based approach to
buying energy, one that spurred vigorous competition among suppliers,
delivered breakthrough pricing, and facilitated a significant investment in
renewable energy. We appreciate the opportunity DFW has afforded World Energy
to further demonstrate the value of our people, processes and platform."
