1 Lab Energy Management Big Ten Mechanical & Energy Conference October

2 The Approach Promotion and awareness of Campus Energy Transition Plan Goals Be Spartan Green, Face It: Green Looks Good on You, radio, newspaper, athletic events, fairs, promotional events, website, Twitter, Facebook Communication of progress Institutional reporting, rankings, building reports, Behavior Change Commissioning Energy Treasure Hunt Environmental Steward Program Green Certification Program 2 Energy Educators

3 Safe Sustainable Labs – Cross Unit Team Balancing Laboratory Safety and Energy Efficiency MSU’s Energy Transition Plan Why Focus on Laboratories? The “Safe Sustainable Labs” Concept 3

4 Energy Transition Plan Goals 4

5 Progress Towards Energy Transition Plan Goals 5

6 Safe Sustainable Labs: MSU’s Energy Transition Plan The Ultimate Vision: Campus Powered by 100% Renewable Energy 6

7 Safe Sustainable Labs: MSU’s Energy Transition Plan Investment in energy conservation measures More stringent energy-related building standards Energy monitoring strategies Goal 1: Improve the Physical Environment 7

8 Safe Sustainable Labs: MSU’s Energy Transition Plan Capacity Reliability Environment Health Cost Why is IPF installing the OptiNet system? MSU’s Energy Transition Plan calls for aggressive investment in energy conservation measures and new technologies. Improvements in building systems like this will allow the University to achieve a 20% reduction in energy consumption by the year

9 Why Focus on Laboratories? A research building typically uses 5 to 10 times more energy than an office building. Appropriate ventilation control can result in a 30 to 80% reduction in energy use. 9

10 The Safe Sustainable Labs Concept An integrated approach to energy reduction in intensive research spaces Emergency Purge Button Energy Efficient Equipment Centralized Demand Control Ventilation Fume Hoods Molecular Plant Science 10

11 Working together for safety Balancing Laboratory Safety and Energy Efficiency Conventional Laboratory Ventilation OptiNet: Centralized Demand Controlled Ventilation Response to Elevated VOCs OptiNet Monitoring Lab Assessment – Derive Number of Air Changes per Hour Locations of OptiNet at MSU 11

12 How Lab HVAC Works: Variable Air Volume System A Air Volume L Lab LlAB Lb 12

13 Centralized Demand Controlled Ventilation Integration of airflow systems with sophisticated occupancy and air-quality sensors. Real time air quality monitoring Sampled air analyzed for contaminants Sensor Suite Responsive Ventilation ACH setback based on occupancy ACH increase in response to contaminants Varies from 4 ACH to 18 ACH Emergency Purge button 13

14 How HVAC Works in a Variable Air Volume Lab with Centralized Demand Control Ventilation Variable volume control exhaust boxes Supply VAV boxes for temperature control 14

15 Centralized Demand Controlled Ventilation TEMP 15

16 DASHBOARD for DOLLARS

17 Green = Good Red = Bad Frequency of Hood Use Average % Open

18 OptiNet NOT Suitable for some Labs High Solvent Use and Storage Cryogen Use in Smaller Space Biosafety Level 3 Volatile Carcinogen Storage High Acute Toxicity by Inhalation High Hood Density Derived Number of Air Changes per Hour Environmental Health & Safety Lab Assessments for OptiNet 18

20 Responsibilities of Lab Personnel Balancing Laboratory Safety and Energy Efficiency Emergency Room Purge Room Purge or Hood Purge? Safe Sustainable Lab Practices 20

21 21

22 When there is a large chemical spill or hazardous release in the room… Press Room Purge Button Exit Laboratory Close Lab Doors Call 911 Emergency Purge Ventilation Procedure 22

23 Activate the red emergency room purge button when there is a spill or hazardous release in the room. Emergency Room Purge or Hood Purge? Use hood purge button located on the fume hood monitor when there is a spill or release in the hood. 23

24 Maintain clear area around Emergency Room Purge button Safe Sustainable Lab Practices 24

25 Keep the sash closed as much as possible Avoid raising sash above the arrow Lower or close hood when not in active use. Leaving the lab area? Close sash completely. Safe Sustainable Lab Practices 25

26 Minimize openings on hoods with horizontal panes Position the sash all the way down and slide panes to create as small an open area as practical. Safe Sustainable Lab Practices 26

27 Keep doors and windows closed This allows correct lab pressurization to be maintained. Open doors or windows can impair air flow through the hood Work with volatile carcinogens and toxics in hood Proper use and storage of chemical Safe Sustainable Lab Practices 27

28 Promotion & Awareness Be Spartan GreenBe Spartan Green Campaign Website/Green Stories/Projects/Events/Community Content driven by behavior team research & recommendations Energy Educators – How does my building work? 28

29 Communicating Progress Goals and Feedback Critical for Campus Communications Key Indicators Report Project progress Energy Dashboard 29

30 Behavior Change – Green Certification Recognize, promote and assist departments/students with MSU best practices Certification criteria based on space type: o Offices and conference rooms o Residential facilities o Kitchens o Science Labs o Information Technology Areas/Computer Labs Qualitative and quantitative checkpoints 30
