Energy Management incorporates sustainability and energy efficiency into long-term planning, operations and management of campus facilities.
Work with in-house staff and our energy consultant, Competitive Energy Services, to develop and manage the University’s Utility Budget assuring the lowest possible cost to the University. This includes cost effective procurement solutions to reduce the cost and GHG emissions of energy, e.g. from renewable energy projects; biofuels, hydropower, etc.Using EnerNOC Building Energy Intelligence System, analyze energy usage and compare to past to see if energy is being reduced or increased; and to measure and verify effectiveness of energy conservation updates.
Using analytics supplied by EnerNOC evaluate building management systems control and improve building energy usage to improve overall energy effectiveness.
Reviewing all building programs affecting energy consumption from a technical standpoint, recommending energy conservation in building renovation, new construction and operations. This is highlighted by UMass Lowell's $27 Million Accelerated Energy Program to reduce water use and total energy by 25%.
Learn about UMass Lowell's University Crossing and its sustainability features.
Working with the Projects Group in establishing and updating standards for green building design approaches in renovation and new construction
Manage a program to reduce the University's energy and GHG emissions in collaboration with major stakeholders to support the University’s CAP and Sustainability goals. This program of capital and operational improvements is developed to reduce energy usage, cost and environmental impact; including operational and capital activities. Includes development of annual call for new energy and deferred maintenance projects.
