Are you trying to reduce energy consumption on your campus? Conservation programs that include building retrofits and improvements to metering and controls can reduce energy consumption by over 20% on university and college campuses.
David Helliwell and John Metras, University of British Columbia’s Managing Director of Infrastructure Development presented a 45 minute webinar on reducing energy consumption on campus.
This presentation includes:
• An overview of UBC’s ECOTrek project and the keys to its success in reducing energy consumption across the campus
• An explanation of the role of EMS (Energy Management Systems) in ensuring the persistence of energy savings
• An outline of UBC’s future energy sustainability projects
John Metras was the Director of Operations for UBC when the university implemented its $35M ECOTrek project that involved rebuilding and retrofitting the infrastructure of nearly 300 buildings, and which led to a 23% reduction in campus energy consumption and a 15% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
David Helliwell has worked in the energy sector since 1994, including a role with the Canadian government where he was responsible for reducing costs and improving environmental performance of 700 million square feet of office space across the country. He is the CEO of Pulse Energy, which he co-founded in 2006.
