Brunswick Community College
OP-T2-17: Energy Management System
|0.25 / 0.25||
Executive Director, Facility Services
Does the institution use a centralized energy management system that allows it to track energy consumption and performance in multiple buildings in a central location?:
A brief description of the management system:
To provide energy and utility services to Brunswick Community College as inexpensively as possible
in order to potentially make more funds available for educational programs.
Brunswick Community College expects to improve energy efficiency continuously by establishing and implementing an effective Energy Management Program while continuing to provide a safe and comfortable educational environment. Part of this plan is to assure that the College’s utilities – electricity, LP gas, fuel oil, and water/ sewer, are being provided at the best possible rate. A second focus is to make consumption of energy as efficient as is feasible. Other focus areas are communication and training, and water consumption.
The website URL where information about the institution's use of the technology is available:
At the request of Dr. Ben DeBlois, VP for Administrative Services an energy survey was completed in 2006 by the Energy Management Program at NC State University Industrial Extension Service, which created a baseline and helped to direct future steps to take for energy use reduction.
Starting in 2007, Brunswick Community College began reporting annually to the NC Energy Office in the Department of Commerce.
The College is currently working on an Energy Plan to implement cost effective ways to reduce energy costs.
