Energy Management System

Shark meter “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.”

 

In 2008, Dartmouth launched an aggressive effort to install and automate energy meters in all main campus buildings. We currently have more than 400 steam, electric, and chilled water meters that report real-time data to our central energy management system.

We also track and analyze data from building control systems, the central heating plant, and our district chilled water plants. This system allows us to identify energy hogs and to monitor the performance of projects such as lighting retrofits, building retrocommissioning, and upgrades to Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems.
