Energy Management #101: Controlling Costs Campus-Wide
By their very nature, large educational institutions have a lot to gain from managing their energy wisely. Characterized by a sprawling campus, multiple buildings, thousands of residents, and a diverse range of power requirements, a typical university campus is like any progressive community - a large energy consumer. Fortunately, today's technology offers many ways to do just that. Instead of waiting for the monthly electricity bill to determine power usage, facility managers can now use an enterprise energy management ("EEM") system to manage campus-wide energy use, improve problem response, and increase reliability.
