In the face of climate change, aging utility infrastructures, and emerging energy technologies, campuses must be prepared to undergo dynamic change to support the institution's needs. This session will discuss Rider University's energy master plan, which aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through integrating facility management and future campus development as well as incorporating energy conservation and generation options. We will demonstrate how you can assess your present facility conditions and corresponding energy consumption and develop a plan to achieve energy independence and carbon neutrality on your campus.
Learning Outcome 1: Assess monitoring and metering capability conditions on your campus and identify processes to achieve measurable energy and carbon use reduction through energy modeling and project prioritization.
Learning Outcome 2: Research campus regulations, including building codes, energy codes, and public utilities in conjunction with available financial incentives to identify synergies supporting energy and carbon use reduction.
Learning Outcome 3: Explain how to develop a framework for an energy master plan that includes short-, medium-, and long-term goals.
Learning Outcome 4: Discuss how to effectively align the energy master plan with the campus master and strategic plans to achieve consensus and ensure successful implementation.
