Utility and Energy Services is responsible for the design, operation, maintenance, and repair of the campus’s energy generation and distribution infrastructure for steam (heating), chilled water (cooling), and electricity. We provide the campus community with reliable utility services in a cost-effective and environmentally responsible manner and offer measurement, line locating, performance engineering, regulatory and data management services.
- The District Energy Plant Maintenance group manages the mechanical capital improvements, preventative and predictive maintenance programs for the utility generation systems at CU Boulder. This group is tasked with maintaining the district energy plant turbomachinery, boilers, chillers, and auxiliary equipment to ensure that equipment availability is not compromised and system performance can be optimized.
- The Distribution & Metering group manages the mechanical capital improvements, preventative and predictive maintenance programs for the campus wide utility distribution and metering systems at CU Boulder. This group is tasked with maintaining the steam, condensate, chilled water, utility tunnels, and energy meters to ensure that component availability is not compromised and system performance can be optimized.
- The Instrumentation and Control (I&C) group manages and maintains the District Energy Plant process control system, the campus wide Automated Metering Infrastructure (AMI), and the centralized supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems.
- The Electrical Distribution group manages and maintains the electrical preventative and predictive maintenance programs for the CU Boulder 15kV Microgrid (CBM) and District Energy Plants to ensure that equipment availability is not compromised, system performance can be optimized, and energy data is accurate.
- The Utility Locate group manages the UNCC program for the CU Boulder campus. All utility locate requests are managed and completed by the locator group to ensure accurate and on-time location of our utility infrastructure. See link below for all 811 locating information.
The instructions below outline the steps to be taken to obtain standard campus utility consumption and cost data from the EnergyCAP software available via the internet.
Users who do not have access to the CU network can request data from the Utility Services Department by submitting a Data Inquiry form.
