Energy management in higher education
Granular energy data and visibility into energy consumption and performance of each system, building, and campus drives action towards an energy efficient and sustainable establishment.
Universities and school systems can get quick ROI with device level energy management solutions.
Managing energy costs throughout the campus, providing optimal indoor air temperature, and ensuring that all critical facility systems across the campus are running optimally are all challenges for today’s higher education establishments. Gaining granular visibility into energy usage enables campuses to eliminate waste, improve processes, and achieve sustainability goals.
The quick and effective solution for reducing energy consumption is device-level monitoring.
Panoramic Power's device-level, wireless, self-powered sensors are engineered to allow rapid, non-invasive installation with no disturbance of daily operations. Once installed, the sensors become part of the building infrastructure, never requiring maintenance, service, or battery replacement. Panoramic Power provides campuses with a cost effective, easy to deploy solution that delivers unmatched visibility into energy consumption and facility level performance across all systems, all buildings and all campuses. This drives action towards a more energy efficient and sustainable campus.
BENEFITS FOR HIGHER EDUCATION ESTABLISHMENTS
- Control off-hours consumption
Real time energy monitoring at circuit level reduces energy costs and manages energy usage during off hours.
- Benchmark devices, systems, buildings, and campuses
Prioritize preventive actions across multiple devices and multiple sites by benchmarking device data that in comparison to industry standards and similar systems, or to other sites within the campus.
- Measure effectiveness of retrofits
Accurately gauge the efficacy of retrofits before and after completing the work by tracking the energy profiles for each device.
- Support sustainability and regulatory programs
Historical energy data and energy efficiency reports quantify points earned for LEED certification and register the facilities in the EPA’s ENERGY STAR® benchmarking tool to measure the project’s achievements toward sustainability.
- Improve Continuously
Continuous improvement is an ongoing effort to improve products, services or processes. Through device-level energy management, a university or school district can achieve higher operational effectiveness regardless of cold spells or sweltering heat waves. Planned device maintenance activities result in a more efficient use of staff resources and help ensure that devices will run effectively at all times.
