Facilities Management

Energy Goals

Facilities Management uses professional engineering oversight to manage energy resources and to provide guidance in facilities improvements and facilities operations.

One major building cost is the energy used to operate the building.  Electrical power for lighting and equipment, electrical power to generator chilled water for cooling, and natural gas used to generate steam for heating.  Effectively managing these energy resources has both significant cost consequences and impacts to greenhouse gas emissions.

Objective 1.3:  Effectively manage energy resources

Measurement 1.3.1. Using “Labs 21 Energy Benchmarking”, Energy Use Index for each building will be better than peer groups.

Our EUI will be compared to the average EUI of a predefined group of peer institutions based on similar building type, i.e. research space, office space, education space.  EUI is the standard industry measure for comparison (Energy Use Index represents thousand BTU per Gross Square Feet of space for annual energy use).
