University and College Campuses
In a typical college or university, lighting, ventilation, and cooling are the largest consumers of electricity. By implementing energy efficiency measures, many colleges and universities have the potential to cut their energy bills by 30 percent or more.
One of the easiest and most straightforward techniques that universities can implement in the near term is daylighting. When properly designed and integrated with an existing lighting system, daylighting can offer significant energy savings by offsetting some of the electric lighting load. Magnum's building automation solution includes the ability to optimize daylight using occupancy and photocell sensors.
Decisions about improving energy efficiency in buildings rest in part on knowledge about current energy use. In order to gather this kind of energy information accurately, metering of campus buildings is now being employed more often. Submetering helps allocate costs by each department. This also encourages conservation and allows for the ability to track, monitor, and report on energy consumption. This information allows the building owner or facility manager to make the best decision about energy upgrades and efficiency investments.
