Rochester - Vikings US Bank Stadium Tour
May 21, 2019
12:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Vikings U.S. Bank Stadium

Tour of US Bank Stadium - Rochester ASHRAE

U.S. Bank Stadium aims to reduce its carbon footprint in all areas of operations including but not limited to water reduction, waste reduction/diversion, energy efficiency, sustainable purchasing, and the promotion of alternative transportation. U.S. Bank Stadium aims to become a zero-waste facility, where 90% of all waste is either compostable, recyclable, reused, or donated. As a LEED Gold certified stadium, much of the innovation is based on smart technology and providing efficient and sustainable solutions that make the event experience overwhelmingly excellent. In 2018, more than 70% of all stadium waste was diverted from landfill, and the stadium’s sustainability program was recognized as one of the Green Sports Alliance’s Innovators of the Year. Through renewable energy credits, 100% of the stadium’s power comes from wind energy. Utilizing smart building management systems and strict energy use policies, energy consumption has dropped by more than 10% from the first year open. LED lights are used for all lighting systems, including the field lights, and energy-intensive equipment is shutdown whenever not in use. Waste is diverted from the landfill, and either recycled, composted, donated, or reused. Remaining waste is taken to a trash-to-energy facility where it is converted to steam that is used to heat buildings in the downtown Minneapolis area. The stadium ensures responsible water use by using industry-best low flow fixtures, and a storm water collection system keeps site runoff from flooding the surrounding area while also helping to charge the local ground water.
