One important tool we are implementing to help us reach our energy conservation goals is this dashboard, which provides real-time energy-use data for 16 buildings across City and East Campuses. This data provides opportunities for targeting energy conservation practices that can work to lower peak energy demand and total energy use.
Another benefit of the dashboard system is that it creates a platform for significant occupant engagement. It allows building occupants to receive instant feedback for energy saving behaviors. This feedback is vital to inspire the positive behavior change we need to reach our energy conservation goals.
