Job Responsibilities & Description We Wear MANY Exciting HATS! Manage energy needs Supply & price fluctuations – past, present & future Overall system performance Technical Competencies/Components Engineering/Construction background High Performance Buildings – design, planning, project management Sustainability & Renewable Technology EMS/BAS Technology/Software Researching New Technology Communication & Involvement Managerial - motivation, leadership, support Develop Policy Create & Implement Sustainability Programs Monitor & Reporting
Holistic Approach Technical Operations Planning & Projects Human Behavior Programs Systematic Concept Method Bodies act as systems of a whole Buildings act as systems a whole Holistic approach Principles of Sustainability Effective & Successful EM must understand these systems and how they interact. "We shape our buildings, then our buildings shape us." -- Winston Churchill
Typical Energy Consumption How much did we spend?
Projected Energy Use in North Carolina (Trillion Btu) 28% total increase from 2005 to 2020 1.7 % per year 2,732 trillion in 2006

Programs: Reducing Our Carbon Paw Print Began as WHEE Recycle & WHEE Save Successful sustainability programs. The Low Hanging Fruit Energy reduction & awareness. Waste reduction & awareness. Sustainability Council Faculty, staff & students developing sustainability efforts on campus http://www.wcu.edu/27314.asp
Programs Campus Activities Eco CATS + more Focus The Nation 2008 & 2009 Earth Day 2007-2010 Sustainability Day 2010 Recycling drives Faculty/Staff events Eco PEAKS (LEAD 143) Western PEAKS FYE - Living Learning Community Leadership & Sustainability Be the change you wish to see in the world --Gandhi
Technical Components Building Automation System: Monitor & control mechanical systems: –Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, Hot Water, Electric, Domestic Water, Chilled Water & Steam. Yamas/Tridium Automated Logic
Technical Competencies Energy Audits – survey of energy systems to enhance building performance Including Efficient: –Lighting –Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning –Office equipment –Building envelope –Water
Strategic Energy Plan Mandated by the State (Exec Order 26) Reduce annual Total Energy Consumption 20% by 2010 & 30% by 2015 Baseline fiscal year 2002-2003 Tracking Measures - Key Performance Indicators (KPI): Water, electricity, natural gas, fuel oil, propane Components of Performance Plan Energy Supply Management Energy Demand Management Organization Integration
Strategic Energy Plan (SEP) WCU has reduced usage by 34% Accelerated better building practices Active energy management practices Successful awareness program For more information please go to www.energy.wcu.eduwww.energy.wcu.edu
Petroleum Displacement Plan Created in 2005 & mandated by the state. State agencies shall reduce petroleum usage by 20% by January 1, 2011. Must utilize conservation, fuel-efficient vehicles, hybrids & alternative fuels. 2009-10 Summary Completed Goals: Purchased 6 Electric Vehicles for Facilities Management Implemented E-10 - Gasohol Implemented B20 - Biodiesel Little expansion of fleet WCU has reduced usage by 19%.
Green Capital Projects New Health & Human Performance Building (West Campus) 138,000 sqft ($46M) 1 st Silver LEED Certified Recognizing performance in: -Site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection & IAQ Performance Contracting Agreement with Energy Service Company (ESCO). ESCO identifies energy conservation measures. ESCO guarantees savings meet or exceed all project costs. $5.36M – Coulter, Ramsey Center, McKee Hunter Library, Hoey, Stillwell HVAC Renovation & Retro-Commissioning HF Robinson Administration Building (White House) $717K ARRA Grant
What does this mean? Good news or Bad news? Climate Change is Real! –Not about saving the Earth. Its about saving the People. Energy is Expensive & Unpredictable!!!! National Security Challenge = Opportunity Extraordinary Economical & Ecological benefits Clean (or Green) Industry is BOOMING! 6 in 10 jobs Are you ready for the NEW GREEN ECONOMY? " The time is always right to do what is right. --Martin Luther King, Jr.
