Georgia Institute of Technology’s Facilities Management Department has always strived to find new ways to reduce campus energy costs. The economic downturn and increasing environmental concerns have heightened the focus on reducing university operating costs, especially costs associated with energy consumption. As a result, Georgia Tech has created a team focused on identifying and implementing energy saving measures as well as maintaining the buildings on campus so that they run as efficiently as possible.
The responsibilities of Georgia Tech's Energy Conservation team include:
- Developing a sustainable energy and water conservation program
- Providing the Institute with reliable and cost effective utilites
- Striving for the most efficient use of energy and water
- Eliminating all wasteful and non-mission crtical use of utilities
- Reducing GT's utility consumption in order to meet the Institute's energy and green house gas commitments
The Energy Conservation team has expertise in lighting retrofits, HVAC improvement, plugload analysis, chiller optimization, energy recovery units, steam production and distribution, chilled water production and distribution, meters and control systems, cistern placement, architectural design, energy policy, emissions rules and regulations, and asbestos abatement.
