Energy sustainability on campus

  1. 1. Energy Sustainability on Campus Reduce Your Campus’ Energy Consumption John Metras, University of British Columbia David Helliwell, Pulse Energy
  2. 2. GoToWebinar Control Panel Ask us questions! Hide the control panel
  3. 3. Agenda • Ecotrek Program: objectives, implementation, results. • Energy management on campus • Future energy reduction plans and goals • Q&A • Total: 45 minutes
  4. 4.  2 campuses: Vancouver and Kelowna  48,000 students  Global leader in Clean Energy, Forestry, Sustainable Urban Development, Health Research, Asian Studies  Kyoto targets achieved in 2007 in a context of 30% growth The University of British Columbia
  5. 5. UBC Ecotrek Program • Canada’s largest university energy/water retrofit project • $35M in energy and water retrofits to 288 buildings • Interior and exterior lighting upgrades • HVAC and BMS system upgrades • Steam system refurbishment and upgrades • Energy management training for ops staff
  6. 6. Ecotrek Objectives • Reduce energy and water costs • Minimize environmental impacts • Reduce deferred maintenance backlog • Improve building occupant comfort
  7. 7. Implementation Strategy • Partnered with BC Hydro and internal stakeholders • Negotiated performance contract including energy usage baselines • Started with small lighting retrofit to prove concept
  8. 8. Implementation Strategy, Continued • Employed rigorous project controls and internal coordination • Created program name and logo • Promoted successes to make partners look good
  9. 9. Ecotrek Results & Benefits Compared to 2000 levels, in 2007/2008 Ecotrek had achieved: • 23% reduction of energy consumption per m2 • 35% reduction of water consumption per m2 • 23% reduction of GHG emissions per m2 • 86% reduction in NOx emissions • $15-20M reduction in deferred maintenance • Improved indoor air quality • Enhanced reputation for leadership in sustainability
  10. 10. Energy Management • Technical training for operations staff (EcoTrek) • Energy dashboard pilot programs (Pulse Energy) – Phase 1: Dashboard for building users – Phase 2: EM software for operations staff
  11. 11. Energy Management, Continued • Kill-a-Watt meter program • Energy management policy • Continuous optimization program (BC Hydro) – Pilot program to audit, retrofit and monitor campus buildings
  12. 12. Future Plans • Smart Energy Grid Project – Biomass and alternative energy – Steam to hot water conversion – Continuous Optimization • Goal to reduce carbon emissions by 33% by 2015, 67% by 2020 and 100% by 2050 • Reduce or avoid carbon tax and emission off-set costs ($3.3M/year)
  13. 13. Biomass Demonstration UBC Bioenergy Research and Demonstration Project Building: Four story CLT building Gross Power: 1.95 MWe for export Net Thermal: 8000 lbs/hr for district heating CO2 Red: 4,000 tpy of GHG reduction
  14. 14. Continuous Optimization • The UBC Continuous Optimization Program is targeting a 10% reduction in energy consumption and GHG emissions by 2015 • Optimization (audits and re-commissioning), Monitoring, Targeting and Reporting, Sustainable Behaviors. • Measurement & verification of results with Pulse Energy’s software
