Master Planners: Why Philadelphia's Navy Yard is a Leader in Sustainability Strategies | KeystoneEdge.com

Master Planners: Why Philadelphia's Navy Yard is a Leader in Sustainability Strategies | KeystoneEdge.com | Recycling | Scoop.it

Imagine a waterfront urban space with its own electrical grid, its own street system and its own community of dedicated sustainability advocates. It would be the perfect testing ground for best practices in energy-efficiency and stormwater management -- a real-time laboratory for smart grids, run-off canal systems, industrial reuse and cutting-edge new construction. It's already a reality here in Philadelphia. 

Over the past decade, the Navy Yard has become a national hub for energy innovation and sustainability research. That reputation was solidified in 2011, when the U.S. Department of Energy committed $125 million to the creation of the Energy Efficient Buildings (EEB) Hub, now considered the nation's largest research center for the energy economy.

But the former Philadelphia Naval Shipyard gets far less attention for its unyielding dedication to stormwater management practices. Driven by its original 2004 Master Plan -- and its location on the temperamental Delaware River waterfront -- the Navy Yard has been a testing ground for Green City, Clean Waters, the city's comprehensive watershed protection and stormwater management plan.
