Campus Data Collection and Analysis
Utilities have been implementing external storage and analysis tools for more than a decade as a result of their need to comply with NERC security measures and also to improve the availability, reliability and efficiency of their energy production. Throughout the last several years universities have implemented a similar approach in order to achieve objectives related to energy conservation, efficiency, preventative equipment maintenance and a reduction in utility costs.
In order to achieve the energy conservation objectives and meet university objectives for management and control of energy related data, investment in an Enterprise Energy Management suite provides the following:
- Allows for enterprise-wide access to the energy information that currently resides in disparate software platforms and databases.
- Improves external storage capabilities, enhances the organization of data, allows for further analysis capabilities and more robust reporting tools for the facilities management team.
- Integrates the energy tracking and auditing process with the utilities billing/budget management process that both departments are currently managing by personal spreadsheets.
- Allows students and other academic and administrative departments easy access to energy data to support awareness and education as well as incentives to reduce energy consumption.
- Implements sophisticated university controlled technology that analyzes energy data and identifies underperforming assets and inefficient processes in real-time.
- Collect, store, display, analyze and report on real-time and historical operational data.
- Lossless data compression.
- On-demand reporting.
- Powerful calculation engine.
- Alarm and event framing.
- KPI tracking and reporting.
- Asset health monitoring.
- Access to information and reports via the Internet or intranet.
