Initiative 10 – Building Energy Optimization

Strategy Title Initiative 10 – Building Energy Optimization
Strategy Owner UES, with support from Facilities Services (SSC)
Strategy Description Optimize efficiency of building automation, heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), mechanical, and electrical systems. The primary focus is to optimize building energy-consuming systems and ensure efficient operation of both building systems and campus distribution/delivery systems, while effectively and efficiently meeting customer needs.


Objective 10.1: Test and optimize building chillers, boilers, and HVAC system reliability and operating efficiencies.
Objective 10.2: Focus Energy Stewardship Program on the top 50 buildings that consume 50% of campus energy to prioritize and identify ways to optimize the energy efficiency.
Objective 10.3: Fully leverage in-house expertise to ensure that building automation systems remain efficiently tuned.
