The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system is an Equal Opportunity employer and educator. Chief Financial and Facilities Officers Meeting January 27, 2010 Sustainability - Energy Benchmarking B3 LEED – Leadership Energy and Environmental Design
Slide System Action Plan System Strategic Goal 4.2 Reward and support institutions, administrators, faculty and staff for innovations that advance excellence and efficiency Energy Conservation 1.Develop a comprehensive environmental sustainability policy for Board adoption 2.Publish procedures and standards for sustainable planning, design, construction and operation of facilities 3.Develop a System-wide energy benchmarking system 4.Report system accomplishments to the Board
Slide System Action Plan – status 1.Policy – under development 2.Design & construction standards – updated –Building to B3 and MnSCU Standards is at least LEED “certifiable” and maybe Silver 3.Energy Benchmarking – ongoing results! –More details in Facilities breakout session II 4.Report on accomplishments –Colleges and universities will report accomplishments on sustainability issues –Report (“Green Report”) template issued in March
Slide 4 Design and Construction Standards Design & Construction Sustainable Standards Update Stanley Consultants and LHB retained Performed a “credit analysis” by LEED standards Updated standards to ensure compliance with both B3 and LEED Final review (April 2009): “… any significant new construction projects that comply with.... MnSCU Design Standards would be comparable to LEED “Silver” certification project.”
Slide 5 History – Energy Benchmarking “Cannot improve what you cannot measure.” Department of Administration began energy tracking system several years ago Mixed success Official Benchmark in place using B3 as basis Campus work began May 2009 – completed Dec 2010…..Thanks! Results! Separate attachment with 2008 data System-wide awareness of energy use and opportunities to reduce consumption, save $$
Slide 6 B3 – Buildings, Benchmark and Beyond Started in 2004 as an initiative Law in 2009 Use of B3 allows campus to review data and improve understanding Use of B3 allows Office of Chancellor to create analysis Use of B3 allows campus to have access funding in BEEEP program: improve your campus with this audit !
Slide 7 B3 – Buildings, Benchmark and Beyond Minnesota Sustainable Building Guidelines (MSBG) Compliance with Minnesota Statute §M16B.235, identify Sustainable and High Performance goals for the project using “The State of Minnesota Sustainable Building Guidelines” at §16B.325: Sustainable Guidelines (B3) for new building or adds/replaces a stand-alone mechanical system. (after Jan 1, 2009, all renovations over 10,000 sf ) §16B.335, Subd 4: Energy Conservation Standards ( Minnesota Energy Code MN Rule ) §216B.241 Subd 9: Sustainable Building Energy Conservation Goals
Slide 8 Using the B3 Benchmarking System Location of B3 website: Go to the B3 website for: –Login ID and password for B3 System –Tutorial illustrating the data entry, features, and reports It is just that simple !
Slide 9 Using the B3 Benchmarking System Update utilities data every month: This will insure greater accuracy and up to date information for users. Review Data: The B3 website data can be viewed monthly in a numeric and graphical format. A review can quickly ensure the accuracy and changes that occur in your campus energy use. Future Updates: The B3 website will contain additional reports. Also a feature downloading pertinent data into a Excel spreadsheet for customizing reports and analysis.
Slide 10 Metrics used to Benchmark Buildings? Cars use: Miles per gallon Lighting efficiency: Lumens per Watt Buildings: Energy Use Intensity (EUI) typically expressed in units of annual energy consumption per floor area per year such as kBtu/sq ft/ year OR kBtu / FYE or maybe in the future …CO 2 / Square foot/ year
The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system is an Equal Opportunity employer and educator. Results from 2008 attached in web link Review carefully your campus data ! Contact Facilities Planning if you want 2006 or 2007 data. All of the 2009 data needs improvement. ‘Grey numbers’ indicate minor gaps ‘Red numbers’ indicate major gaps in consumption data Overall $29.8 million was expended for total energy costs in 2008 for all campuses – which reflects a consistency that the system has been at approx. $30 million for utilities in the last three years Averages total kBtu/sq ft: previous study indicated national average was between 50 and 120 kBtu/sq ft Average $ 1.24/square foot Average $218.33/year per FYE or $76.54/year per headcount Average water consumption was approx 5 gallons/occupant New seminar on B3 will be offered in the future !
Slide 12 Energy Costs - total in 2008 was $28.9 million Draft data as 11 campuses have major consumption gaps
Slide 13 Draft Campuses by Alpha order with kBtu/sq ft/ year - averages
Slide 14 Alphabet Soup B 3 – Buildings Benchmark and Beyond – Initiative in 2004 and statute in 2009 USGBC – U S Green Building Council created LEED: Leadership in Energy Environmental Design started by the U S Green Building Council in 1998 –Over 114,000 registered consultants Sustainable Building Energy Conservation Goals
Slide 15 What is LEED ? LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets the highest green building and performance measures. Sustainable building strategies should be considered early in the development cycle. An integrated project team will include the major stakeholders of the project such as the developer/owner, architect, engineer, landscape architect, contractor, and asset and property management staff. I Implementing an integrated, systems-oriented approach to green project design, development and operations can yield synergies and improve the overall performance of a building. Initial LEED assessment will bring the project team together to evaluate and articulate the project's goals and the certification level sought.
Slide 16 Test The Triple Bottom Line ENVIRONMENT ECONOMICS PEOPLE Reduced Environmental Impact. Peak Efficiency. Improved Capitalization Rates. Increased Marketability. Higher Lease Rates. Improved Productivity. Reduced Absenteeism. Facilities FinanceAcademics
Slide 17 Test What is a green building? Site Planning Indoor Environmental Quality Water Management Material Use Energy Design and construction practices that meet specified standards, resolving much of the negative impact of buildings on their occupants and on the environment.
Slide 18 What is the LEED System? Scores are tallied for different aspects of efficiency and design in appropriate categories. For instance, LEED assesses in detail: 1. Site Planning 2. Water Management 3. Energy Management 4. Material Use 5. Indoor Environmental Air Quality 6. Innovation & Design Process
Slide 20 LEED is an option; way to evaluate design, Construction (monitoring) and operations
Slide 21 Version 3 – 2009 Version Version USGBC began in 1993 – developed LEED
Slide 22 Version 3 – different ratings/reference
Slide 23 Represents one’s knowledge of rating system specific technical information required for the successful implementation of LEED Intended building practitioners 2-hour exam in addition to the LEED Green Associate Eligibility: Demonstrate professional experience on at least one LEED project Document work on a LEED project within the last 3 years - verification Biennial Maintenance Requirements: 30 hours (6 LEED Specific)
Slide 24 If a project follows B3 and the MnSCU Design and Construction Standards: likely be a ‘silver’ project based on previous Version 2 scale noted below: 100 point scale – new in 2010 – Version 3 – up to 110 points w/innovative and regional credits Previous point system in Version 2.2: Certified was Silver was 33 – 38 Gold was Platinum was
Slide 25 Lake Superior College System’s 1 st LEED Bldg In process: Winona Memorial Hall – Silver St Cloud State Univ Science – ISELF Silver Planned for 2010 : Rochester Comm Technical College Classroom Renovation Normandale Community College – Classroom Addition
Slide 26 Why do this?
Slide 27 LEED Myths : Beware of these ! This product is LEED Certified This product is LEED Approved This product will earn you LEED points This product is VOC compliant This product meets requirements specified by…….. This product can help CONTRIBUTE to LEED certification……..
