STRATEGIC ENERGY MANAGEMENT PLAN The general goals of the Energy Management Strategic Plan are to:
Implement strategies to comply with legislative mandates for energy and water use reduction.
Meet and exceed the intent of the UNC System Sustainability Plan.
Support and complement the campus Sustainability Strategic Plan and the campus Climate Action Plan.
Establish organizational and financial structures that will enable the Plan.
Evaluate required investments in capital and operating funds to realize the mandated reductions and campus commitments.
Identify enabling legislation or budgetary changes necessary to produce results.
Modify the culture at NC State to exemplify leadership in campus energy efficiency.
Each of the 41 Strategic Energy Management components follow the same format:
General Description - What?
Business Case - Why?
Primary Task Breakdown - How?
Interactions Required - Who?
Resources Required - Cost?
Climate Action Plan - Ultimate Benefits
Fuel Mix and Renewables
ENERGY DATA MANAGEMENT Energy Data Management encompasses the entire effort involved in Greenhouse Gas (GHG) abatement and reducing the energy necessary to perform the daily operations of the University. Before changes can be made to any system, it is necessary to know what needs to be changed. Energy Data Management aligns with the University goals of efficient management of resources while mitigating the related costs. This focus area is divided into eight key sections which direct endeavors around the Energy Data Framework. 1.0 Energy Data Management 1.1 Predict Impacts of Growth 1.2 Goals for Plan Sectors 1.3 Building Assessment 1.4 Campus Automation Master Plan 1.5 Energy Dashboard 1.6 Metering Long Range Plan 1.7 Trend Reporting 1.8 Annual ROI Tracking
ENERGY SUPPLY MANAGEMENT 2.0 Energy Supply Management 2.1 Combined Heat and Power Program 2.2 Utility Enterprise - Wolf Energy 2.3 Central Plant Optimization 2.4 Electrical Demand Management 2.5 Energy Procurement Optimization 2.6 Renewable Portfolio 2.7 Industry Best Practices 2.8 Innovative Arrangements 2.9 Reinvestment Legislation The energy types used by NC State University to heat and cool buildings is electricity, natural gas, and fuel oil. Electricity and natural gas are the major energy sources. The primary end-use for the above energy sources is to generate and distribute the following utilities to the campus buildings: steam, chilled water, domestic hot water, building hot water.
ENERGY USE IN FACILITIES 3.0 Energy Use in Facilities 3.1 Organization for Success 3.2 Performance Contracting 3.3 Retro-Commissioning 3.4 Conservation Incentives 3.5 Space Utilization and Scheduling 3.6 Building Setback Strategy 3.7 Intersession Energy Savings Initiative 3.8 LEED Silver Design Standard 3.9 Life-Cycle Costs for Capital Decisions 3.10 Building Automation Master Plan 3.11 Public Utility Incentives 3.12 Repair and Renovation Grants for ECMs Energy Use in Facilities applies to the efforts of Energy Management and it’s partners, to reduce campus energy consumption by targeting campus buildings and the way that they are designed, built and occupied. Session Law 2007-546 sets a standard for all State-owned facilities, and the measures below are intended to help NC State meet or exceed these standards. This focus area is divided into twelve key sections that support our mission to reduce campus energy consumption and decrease our carbon footprint.
EQUIPMENT EFFICIENCY North Carolina Executive Order 156 encourages all state agencies to maximize their efforts to develop and implement environmentally sustainable policies and practices to minimize their impact on the environment and reduce their overall utility operating cost. The University’s commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions has set forth various initiatives to maximize and to jumpstart programs that are geared to the reduction of the campus’ energy consumption. 4.0 Equipment Efficiency 4.1 Energy Star Procurement Policy 4.2 Incentives for Energy Efficient Equipment 4.3 IT Systems Energy Efficiency 4.4 Equipment Energy Awareness Programs 4.5 Life-Cycle Costs for Equipment Upgrades 4.6 Operations and Maintenance Best Practices
CAMPUS ENERGY INTEGRATION Saving energy and reducing the University carbon pawprint will require the buy-in of the entire campus community. By and large, building occupants drive building energy consumption. By establishing and energy policy and implementing effective outreach programs, NC State will achieve it’s aggressive energy reduction and greenhouse gas emission goals. 5.0 Campus Energy Integration 5.1 Comprehensive Energy Policy 5.2 Sustainability/Energy Outreach 5.3 Student Conservation Fee 5.4 Student Work/Learn Opportunities 5.5 Living Laboratories 5.6 Centennial Partner Engagement
