ENGIE Resources, the fourth-largest non-residential electricity provider in the United States and leader of an "Energy Revolution," announced that it will be the official energy provider to the new state-of-the-art Philadelphia 76ers Training Complex, located in Camden, New Jersey. The Philadelphia 76ers Training Complex is the largest and most technologically advanced training center in professional sports.
The news underscores ENGIE Resources' broad background in supplying electricity to major sporting and entertainment venues. It also illustrates the provider's commitment to aligning strategically with large commercial and industrial customers who share similar priorities.
"It has been an honor to work with an organization as innovative and community-minded as the Philadelphia 76ers at their new home at the Philadelphia 76ers Training Complex," said Suzanne Childre, Director of Marketing for ENGIE. "From refurbishing basketball courts in densely populated areas to offering coaching and training to the region's youth, this team is clearly committed to building Camden as a city on the rise. The organization lends its support wherever it can to generate positive change, and we laud their efforts in that regard."
Chad Biggs, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development and Activation for the Sixers, said the team couldn't be more pleased to work with an industry leader like ENGIE Resources.
"We are focused on building long-term relationships with businesses that understand our organizational priorities and can work with us to achieve our goals," said Biggs. "ENGIE's experience in the sports sector - combined with our shared commitment to community involvement and their ability to deliver a product that truly fits our needs - made ENGIE an ideal energy partner."
Designed to foster team building, unity, communication, innovation, and a competitive spirit, the 125,000-square-foot Philadelphia 76ers Training Complex includes a basketball building and a business operations facility. The two-story basketball building includes two NBA regulation-size basketball courts with ten baskets, as well as cutting-edge sports medicine, wellness, and recovery capabilities. Its business operations facility houses the team's operations staff and is home to the Sixers Innovation Lab Crafted by Kimball, which focuses on rapidly growing, early-stage companies in the consumer space and emphasizes providing individualized attention and flexibility to start-ups with potential.
ENGIE Resources' "Energy Revolution" is an initiative to shift emphasis away from energy providers' traditional role of helping customers manage price risk alone, and toward helping customers manage both price and quantity of energy - how much they use, when they use it, and what they pay.
By providing the right tools, resources, and technologies, suppliers can help customers make better, smarter decisions about their consumption, saving energy and money.
