• CMS uses a software called Utility Manager Pro to input all our utility information. 3 of our biggest providers provide electronic files of this information (no manual keying). • CMS then uploads this information to Energy Star’s portfolio manager to obtain our rating.

You Cannot Measure what you do not Track
124

• Every month we look at several reports (print via PDF)
– Usage report – year to date & monthly
• Look for variances and inspect high users

• Budget reports
– Track actual costs versus estimates

• Perform Measurement and Verification activities on maintenance projects
– Why do this ??? You want to inform your staff that the work they are doing is making a difference (saving jobs, costs, etc…). Positive re-enforcement!

125

• Since the Energy Management group is small and budgets are tight, we use other staff to aid in the efforts, these include:
– – – – – Senior Portfolio Managers Engineers Maintenance staff Custodial Staff Energy Coordinators - Site base school staff – Students / Visitors also play a major role

Be a Champion for These Groups
126

Lights
• All new schools have dual switching with in board / outboard control of lights (since about 2001). • The last several years we have been installing a 3rd switch, row by the windows (day lighting). • We have been installing photo eyes on atrium lights • Converting T12 to T8 (bulbs and ballasts) • Gyms we have started removing Metal Halide and going back with T5 fixtures or T8. • Using rebates and grants to offset energy payback on the last 3 items.

127

Real time metering
At many of our schools CMS has pulse meters and we are able to track real time consumption via our EMS systems. The graph to the left is of the Summer 2009 - KWH use per day at our Military Magnet school. We were in 4 day work week mode and had our Summer Energy Management plan in

place.

128

Energy Management Systems Simple Strategies (low costs/no cost)
• CMS has implemented simple energy strategies to eliminate re-heat when the outside air temperature is above 80 degrees • Schedule Optimization • After hours checking • Due diligence and follow-up with maintenance staff, teachers, community use, etc…

129

Future for CMS
• Solar Hot water projects 2 schools – Metro is up and running and JV Washam is in construction • Goal to get our Energy Star portfolio to a 75 average – its currently at 69. • Exterior Wall packs to LED or induction.

Energy Assessments
Energy Assessments Offerings

Online assessment – free, self-service • available through the Business Services Newsline • “Facility Assessment Wizard” provides recommendations tailored to your business or industry Off-site assessment – no charge • a phone-based interview, typically one to two hours, is conducted with the customer by an assessor On-Site Assessment – shared cost • the report is presented to the customer for review, and a live meeting or face-to-face meeting is scheduled to step through the results • customers can recover their portion of the costs dollar-for-dollar when they use Smart $aver incentives (i.e., for every dollar of incentive they are eligible for, they will receive two dollars up to the cost of the assessment)

• •

Note: Customer costs for on-site assessments are based on Duke Energy paying for approximately 50 percent of the total cost – varies but approximately $6,000 plus $1,200 per additional day

168

Energy Savings Master Plan, Partnering for Sustainability

Energy Assessments
What is Included in the Off-Site Assessment Report?

• Recommendations in three categories:

• Excellent – energy savings indicate the payback is less than 3 • •

years; and if Duke Energy Smart $aver Incentives are received, the payback may be reduced to within 2 years. Good – a 3 to 6 year payback is likely; and if Duke Energy Smart $aver incentives are received, the payback may be reduced to within 2 to 4 years. Fair – energy savings indicate that payback is greater than 6 years and may warrant further investigation. Non-energy benefits, such as increased production, improved reliability and reduced maintenance costs, along with Duke Energy Smart $aver incentives may make recommendations worth pursuing.
169

Energy Savings Master Plan, Partnering for Sustainability
