Building energy monitoring dashboard launched

The Building Optimization Program, a new three-year partnership between UBC’s Okanagan campus and Fortis BC, is now in place and energy consumption of the academic buildings is being constantly monitored to help reduce energy use and carbon emissions across campus.

From September 2012 to March 2013, a baseline energy measurement will be established for electricity, gas and water usage in the major buildings. Monitoring software has been installed in the buildings’ energy meters and will collect data, analyze and then display the results in real time via an energy monitor dashboard.

During the baseline phase the campus community is invited to visit the online energy monitor dashboard at any time to monitor a building’s monthly, weekly or daily energy performance in real-time.
