  1. ECBS SWATeam Meeting Minutes

    On April 13th, 2018, the ECBS SWATeam held their 13th meeting of the school year. They discussed the status updates for the funding energy conservation recommendation, as well as the green labs coordinator recomendation. They also conducted new recommendations for ESCO projects and Deferred Maintenance backlog. Eco-Olmypics is in its final week and is finishing strongly, and the Freezer Challenge has had significant progress with registrations. Paul will continue to work with Joyce Mast on the ECEB net zero energy project.

  2. ECBS SWATeam Meeting Minutes

    On March 8, 2018, the ECBS SWATeam had another team meeting where they listened and provided constructive criticism to a presentation on imagery for several energy conservation projects from On the House. Eco-Olympics has made great promotion progress and has advanced from the initial stages to the running stages, with 16 participants already signed up. The team also discussed the target of 10 year paybacks for ESCOs. They are considering recommending more ESCO projects on buildings on campus for utility reductions in buildings that consume large amounts of energy and haven't had retro-commissioning yet.

  3. New ESCOs for 18 campus buildings

    A long-term energy savings plan has been developed for 18 buildings which will consist of multiple agreements with Energy Service Companies (ESCO). These efforts are focused primarily on research facilities which have large energy demands and high potential for savings. The first contract associated with the plan has been approved by the Board of Trustees for $1.4M and will evaluate Seitz Materials Research Laboratory, Engineering Sciences Building, Loomis Laboratory, Superconductivity Center, and Micro & Nanotechnology Laboratory. An added benefit to these contracts is the ability to invest in upgraded systems using energy saving revenue which can improve facility operations and reduce deferred maintenance as well.
