The building sector has the highest potential for improved energy efficiency. Buildings use 36% of America's overall annual energy consumption, and 65% of the electricity demand... “(Source: EPA) and it is estimated that 5%–30% energy use in commercial buildings is wasted due to faults and errors in operations. (Source: LBNL 10.20357/B7V88H). With more than 350,000 energy- utilizing buildings the federal government is the nation’s largest energy consumer. Energy used in buildings and facilities represents about 38% of the total site-delivered energy use of the federal government.
With rising concerns over energy security (both for general supply and specific needs of facilities), and the potential that buildup of greenhouse gases may be causing undesirable impacts on the global climate, it is essential to find ways to reduce load, increase efficiency, and utilize renewable energy resources in all types of facilities.” (Source: the WBDG Sustainable Committee 03-08-2018)
Technical innovations in data management are allowing the most successful facilities managers and chief engineers to utilize advanced power monitoring, predictive analytics and more data based tools to increase equipment uptime and reduce energy consumption under tight staffing and budget constraints.
Project financing and Master Planning is accounting for the need to build in renewables, onsite generation and include overall flexibility to account for future unknown advancements in technologies and innovation. Here from leaders across the government and private sector on how they are financing, planning and managing their respective campus and facilities operations to take back these lessons learned and ideas to your own respective organization.
