College of Notre Dame of Maryland
Baltimore, Maryland

The College of Notre Dame of Maryland undertook an energy management program that has been highly effective at mitigating the impact of the rapid rise in utility rates.  The College had completed an ambitious capital construction program which included a new science facility and new centralized heating, cooling and ice storage plants.  The results of these initiatives were a revitalized campus, however, escalating fossil fuel and electricity prices necessitated the development of an aggressive new program to evaluate savings opportunities.
SBS was engaged to develop an Energy Management Program for the College’s 56-acre campus housing ten major buildings and encompassing approximately 560,000 gsf. The comprehensive energy program which was developed has four key elements: 1) a strategic energy capital investment; 2) a creative utility procurement initiative; 3) extensive optimization of the campus mechanical and electrical systems through fine tuning operational practices; and, 4) engagement of the facilities organization and the broader campus community in the energy conservation effort.

After just one year of implementation, the College saw an impressive impact - energy consumption was reduced by 20%.
