This year's National Facilities Management & Technology (NFMT) event will include a seminar on energy reduction — a Harvard Medical School case study.
Energy use reduction has two very distinct benefits: 1). Less demand reduces the production requirement and consequently adverse environmental impacts. 2). Reduced facility energy costs. This session will describe, in depth, the measures taken by Harvard Medical School Facilities Group to attain a 17% reduction in energy use from 2011 through 2016.This case study illustrates the accomplishments in a wet laboratory medical research setting constrained by HVAC requirements. Some examples include air change rate reductions/setbacks, ASHRAE Level II audits, re-commissioning, and continuous commissioning. Proven techniques for success and some of those that failed will be provided in detail.
1. Discuss the entire population of measures considered by Harvard Medical School
2. Review the most and least effective measures undertaken
3. Understand the difficulties encountered in implementing changes and some techniques used to overcome challenges
4. Recap lessons learned
The session, scheduled for March 9 at 9:00 a.m. (EST), will be given by Peter Stroup, P.E., Director of Facilities at Harvard Medical School.
The event will be held in Baltimore on March 7-9, 2017.
