The goal of the project is to look at Gonzaga’s current energy infrastructure and see how it could be improved. Currently the campus steam system includes minimal monitoring equipment, making accurate efficiency calculations impossible. Our group researched steam systems and provided recommendations for setting up a robust monitoring system to track energy being produced and used at the facilities as well as the losses occurring. Another major part of our project was performing comprehensive energy audits of both Jepson and Herak. We looked at electrical and heating/cooling loads to find major areas where energy efficiency could be improved. Our final report includes our findings and estimated potential energy and cost savings.
