School's Out and Summer Efficiency Projects are in Full Swing

With universities slowing down for the summer break, it’s a good time for facility managers to organize efficiency projects on their campuses. Our June newsletter includes four blog posts with information on the different processes for efficiency projects on college campuses, the benefits of implementing LED lighting at colleges, and even how to finance these types of projects using endowment funds. Lastly, within the theme of school being out, it’s time to say goodbye to our spring semester Northeastern University Co-Ops, Calden and Djordje! We appreciate their contributions and wish them well on their bright futures.

Mashup: Monitoring Data Center Power and Cooling Simultaneously

March 24, 2017 By Coy Stine
Data center facilities of all types must monitor power and cooling data to be responsive when things go wrong, but they don’t often analyze combined data to obtain operational efficiencies. While a data center’s function is to protect the servers and information it stores, its success is increasingly dependent on the kinds of operational data it produces and how this data is used to control and respond to issues.

Higher Education And LED Lighting Retrofits

April 24th, 2017 By Ross Fairbanks
College and university campuses are among the most energy-intensive property types in the world. EnergyStar’s 2016 report, U.S. Energy Use Intensity by Property Type, calculates college/university Site EUI (Energy Use Intensity) to be 130.7 (kBtu/ft2 ). This figure represents a mixture of primary energy consumed (raw fuel, like natural gas) and a secondary energy source (converted product, such as electricity).
