  1. EGen006 Petascale Offsets recommendation - Assessment with all comments

    The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on February 23rd, 2017, to discuss and start the assessment on the SWATeam recommendation EGen006 Petascale Offsets. The iWG's official recommendation was:

    "This has been an open issue since the 2010 iCAP and the 2015 iCAP.  This should be addressed with the current discussions about supercomputing on campus."

    See attached the iWG assessment complete with official comments from all the iWG members.

    See SWATeam recommendation EGen006 Petascale Offsets here.

  2. EGen005 Rooftop Solar Standards recommendation - Assessment with all comments

    The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on February 23, 2017, to discuss the SWATeam recommendation EGen005 Rooftop Solar Standards. The official recommendation from the iWG was:

    "Rooftop solar should be included in the Facility Standards, with guidance developed by F&S staff, in order to maximize the effectiveness of solar installations.  This should apply to new construction, major renovations, and roof improvement projects.  Project scopes should include rooftop solar, as applicable, based on the guidance to be developed according to roof orientation, nearby shading, potential solar capacity, and roof construction type (e.g., gypsum would be an inappropriate roof decking for retrofitting with solar PVs). Exceptions should require a variance during the capital design review process."

    See attached the assessment form complete with official comments from all the iWG members.

  3. EGen005 Rooftop Solar Standards recommendation - Submittal

    The eGen SWATeam submitted a recommendation to the iWG stating, "Incorporate a building design standard into the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Facilities Standards that requires all new buildings on-campus to include a rooftop solar array covering the majority of rooftop surface area."

    See attached the SWATeam recommendation EGen005 Rooftop Solar Standards complete with comments from all the eGen SWATeam members.

  4. EGen006 Petascale Offsets recommendation - Submittal

    The eGen SWATeam submitted a recommendation to the iWG stating, "Continue and/or start discussions with the Vice Chancellor for Research and/or NCSA regarding the development of a plan and budget to procure the offset for all emissions from the National Petascale computing facility as outlined in the 2015 iCAP."

  5. Water001 BIF Greywater Meter recommendation - Assessment with comments

    The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on December 20, 2016, to discuss and start the assessment of SWATeam recommendation, Water001 BIF Greywater Meter. The iWG's official comment on the recommendation was:

    "A permanent real-time water meter should be installed on the greywater piping system in BIF, and the collected data should be made available in the Energy Billing System and through an online dashboard."

    See attached the iWG assessment of Water001 BIF Greywater Meter complete with official comments from all the iWG members.

  6. Water003 Design Center Greywater Piping recommendation - Denied

    The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on December 20, 2016, to discuss the SWATeam recommendation, Water003 Design Center Greywater Piping. After some discussion, the iWG rejected this recommendation.

    See SWATeam recommendation Water003 Design Center Greywater Piping here.

  7. EGen004 Electrification Study recommendation - Returned

    The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on December 6, 2016, to discuss the SWATeam recommendation, eGen004 Electrification Study. The iWG agreed to return the recommendation to the eGen SWATeam for further discussion with F&S, iSEE, and other stakeholders.

    See SWATeam recommendation eGen004 Electrification Study here.

  8. Water001 BIF Greywater Meter recommendation - Submittal

    The Water and Stormwater SWATeam submitted a recommendation to the iWG stating, 

    "Monitoring the water usage in the Business Instructional Facility (BIF). Specifically, both the total water use and the amount of water used by the raw water system should be measured and the data made available to the campus community.

    BIF is unique in that it was constructed with a separate raw water system that conveys non-potable water to be used for purposes such as flushing toilets. While the system is in place inside the building, it was never connected to an outside source of non-potable water. Use of non-potable water for purposes such as toilet flushing, landscape irrigation, cooling, etc. is recognized as a sustainable practice (e.g., Asano et al, 2007; EPA, 2012). Data to quantify the impact this could have on water use at UIUC, however, is largely unavailable. Metering the raw water system at BIF would provide data about the temporal total and non-potable water demand at a typical campus class/office building. These data would be valuable to consider whether such systems should be considered in future campus construction and renovation.

    F&S installed a temporary meter to measure the flow to the raw water system and operated this meter for approximately one month (April – May 2016), so this recommendation has already been demonstrated to be feasible. However, because building usage is highly variable over the course of an academic year, we recommend that this should be a permanent installation. We also recommend that the data be made available to the campus community to encourage consideration of such water reuse options."

  9. Water002 Cooling Tower Increase COC recommendation - Submittal

    The Water and Stormwater SWATeam submitted a recommendation to the iWG stating,

    "We recommend that a small tonnage (< 700 tons cooling capacity) stand-alone cooling tower on campus operating at a water concentration cycle of less than 2.5 be operated using softened water under high pH/high silica conditions to demonstrate near zero blowdown operation."

    See attached the SWATeam recommendation, Water002 Cooling Tower Increase COC, complete with comments from all the Water and Stormwater SWATeam members.

  10. Water003 Design Center Greywater Piping recommendation - Submittal

    The Water and Stormwater SWATeam submitted a recommendation to the iWG stating,

    "We recommend that the Siebel Design Center should be designed to include plumbing to supply non-potable water to be used for toilet flushing. The system could be connected to the potable water supply until such time as a viable non-potable source (e.g., the campus raw-water lines) is available. At that time the non-potable lines could be connected to the non-potable source at a small expense. We also recommend that a meter be installed to monitor the amount of water delivered to the non-potable system and that these data be made available on the Dashboard operated by Facilities and Services."
