A program of continuous energy oversight for the chiller plant, boiler and cogeneration plant at the Newark Campus of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) has resulted in $1,155,000 in savings in its first two years of operation. The RBHS facility is a district energy plant that provides utilities to Rutgers RBHS and University Hospital   …Continue Reading

New York Launches Energy Monitoring Hub

Linda Hardesty

New York State launched an energy management network operations center, which will provide public facilities with real-time data on their energy use. Dubbed the NY Energy Manager (NYEM), the center is located at the Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Albany. The NYEM is being deployed and managed by the   …Continue Reading

Honeywell Integrates LEED Dynamic Plaque

Linda Hardesty

The US Green Building Council is integrating its new LEED Dynamic Plaque near-real-time monitoring tool with building automation technology from Honeywell. The LEED Dynamic Plaque assesses facility performance in the categories of energy use, water consumption, waste output, occupant transportation and human experience, aggregating data to provide an overall performance score that reflects the LEED   …Continue Reading

Federal Buildings Must Comply with Green Building Certification Rule

Linda Hardesty

The US Energy Department is pursuing a suite of initiatives to strengthen measurement of energy use in federal buildings and energy efficient building design. To that end, the DOE is issuing a final rule, which goes into effect on November 13, that requires verified energy and water performance for new and retrofitted federal buildings that are   …Continue Reading

ADR Demonstration Project Begins in Japan

Karen Henry

Since the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 2011, there has been demand to establish systems that enable the stable supply of electric power and build mechanisms for more efficient power use, even when electric power supply and demand are constrained. Kyocera, IBM Japan and Tokyu Community will start a demonstration test of an automatic   …Continue Reading

DOE Converts EnergyPlus from Fortran to C++

National Lab Creates ‘Autotune’ Building Modeling Software

Linda Hardesty

Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers are developing software that will automatically calibrate models for simulating building energy use. Building Energy Modeling (BEM) uses computer simulations to estimate energy use and guide the design of new buildings and energy retrofits. Up to 3,000 parameters may be specified when modeling a building’s energy use. Over the last   …Continue Reading

ESOS: The Energy Data Clock Is Ticking…

Graham Boret

Remember, remember the 5th of December… The fundamental ESOS question UK businesses and organizations should be asking themselves right now, is not, “Are we ready for December 2015 compliance?” but “Do we have procedures in place to capture 12 months of consecutive energy data before then?” Be warned – the latest date to start measuring   …Continue Reading
