Effective M&O PracticesIncrease EfficiencyWell-designed M&O program can generatesubstantial energy savings for your district, inboth new and older buildingsFederal Energy Management Program (FEMP)Operations and Maintenance Best Practice Guide– “It has been estimated that M&O programstargeting energy efficiency can save 5% to 20%on energy bills without a significant capitalinvestment.”
  10. 10. Energy Saving StrategiesScheduled Maintenance – reinstate requiredmaintenance procedures for filters, boilers, etcSimple Repairs – Low-cost repairs that can becompleted by in-house staffEquipment tune-ups and calibration – can extendthe life of equipmentEquipment Control – limiting equipment operationexclusively to occupied hours, developing properprocedures for after-hours, weekends.

  23. 23. How does this compare to howthings are happening now?Individual buildings are scheduled on a mastercalendar– Buildings remain in a occupied status– Manual overrides occur to accommodate after-hour events on some casesScheduling is EVENT driven and automatic – takesout human error and potential changes instart/stop times
