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:

The Energy Management System is the Tridium Niagara AX system. It gives us the ability to analyze historical energy consumption for electricity, chilled water meters, steam and gas being consumed by our turbine, and domestic water meters (well production).

We monitor on a 24-hour basis the utility production for chilled water, electricity, and domestic water at our Central Utility Plant. We manage electrical demand through a “Utility Dashboard” designed by our Energy Management Systems Manager.

We have another dashboard to monitor watts per square foot where we can compare energy consumption between buildings of like design. This also allows us to benchmark against performance agencies like ASHRAE.
