EPA and DOE honor Servidyne for protecting the environment through energy efficiency

ATLANTA – March 2, 2009 – SERVIDYNE, INC. (NASDAQ – SERV), a building performance efficiency and real estate company, is pleased to announce that it has been named 2009 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). This is the seventh time that Servidyne has won the coveted award, more times than any other service and product provider.

The 2009 Partner of the Year Award recognizes efforts to use energy efficiently in facility operations and to integrate superior energy management into overall organizational strategy. Servidyne, an ENERGY STAR partner since 1995, will be honored for its commitment to strategic energy management in building operations that has resulted in significant energy and financial savings for its customers. Award winners are chosen annually from more than 12,000 organizations that participate in the ENERGY STAR program. Servidyne will be recognized by the EPA and DOE at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on March 31, 2009.

“We are extremely proud to win this prestigious recognition once again,” said Alan R. Abrams, Servidyne’s Chairman, President and CEO. “In these troubling economic times, energy efficiency is more important than ever, the most cost-effective way for our customers to lower utility expenses and reduce carbon footprints. Being honored for our efforts in this regard is a great credit to our customers, who have committed to actively pursuing more sustainable solutions for their facilities, and to our team of employee professionals who work every day to find new ways to help our customers succeed.”

Last year alone, Americans with the help of ENERGY STAR saved $19 billion on their energy bills and reduced greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 29 million vehicles.

“EPA is pleased to recognize Servidyne for leadership in addressing global warming through greater energy efficiency,” said Kathleen Hogan, Director of the Climate Protection Partnerships Division at the U.S. EPA. “Because commercial and industrial facilities account for about half of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, Servidyne’s efforts are vital to protecting our global environment.”
