Operations and Maintenance: Renewable Energy Mobile App
Operations and Maintenance: Renewable Energy.
How does it work?
The focus of this app is to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels during operation and maintenance of agency owned and/or operated facilities through the use and/or generation of renewable energy sources.
The app identifies traits of sustainable highways and provides information and strategies to assist agencies and organizations to incorporate sustainability best practices into highway and other roadway projects. The App is intended to provide a process to assess transportation projects and to support improvements in the area of sustainability.
Transportation projects and systems serve many different and sometimes competing objectives. “Sustainability” is a concept that enables decision‐makers to make balanced choices based on social, economic, and environmental objectives. With ever diminishing economic and natural resources, using sustainable approaches in transportation will allow us to continue to enhance quality of life and serve the transportation needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
