Cornell Uses GE App for Off-Hours Power Management
Cornell University implemented General Electric’s Proficy Mobile in its facilities management, which has provided 40 percent faster off-hours troubleshooting, increasing energy savings and equipment uptime, according to GE.
Cornell, located in Ithaca, NY, manages power, water, HVAC and electrical systems to operate its 260 campus buildings. The university features lake-source cooling systems in addition to steam and power generation.
Proficy Mobile delivers real-time actionable information from across these facilities systems, enhancing the university’s Proficy HMI/SCADA-iFIX for campus-wide monitoring and control. The Cornell facility management team emphasizes use of Proficy Mobile for off-hours troubleshooting of its complex systems and equipment, accessing information through eight standard Apple iPads. Decisions regarding equipment assets significantly impact efficiency and energy usage. With Proficy Mobile, the facilities team has Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) available anywhere, anytime.
