A brief description of how the institution is using the campus as a living laboratory for Air & Climate and the positive outcomes associated with the work:

Students at Carleton University draw on historical and real-time data from every room in the Canal building to learn about and experiment with building systems design and operation.

On May 29, 2012, representatives from Carleton and Delta Controls, the universities building automation partner, opened a new facility for teaching and research, housed in a building containing sensors and actuators from Delta Controls to monitor building energy use and respond to occupant needs for light, temperature control and air quality. More than convenience, this monitoring and adjustment ensures that Carleton is using energy efficiently, saving both power and expense.

With Delta Control’s equipment and the expertise of Carleton’s researchers, the building is providing data to further predictive and simulation modeling to enable building managers and designers create smarter, more efficient, sustainable buildings for building owners. Occupants and visitors to the building can also keep an eye on the building’s performance. A display in the lobby shows current energy uses, weather factors and other variables.
