Energy Services defines Intelligent Buildings as a holistic approach to energy savings, which encompasses a common theme of efficiency. By overlaying the existing SCADA platform with an intelligent controls program, Energy Services will monitor the energy performance of campus buildings and implemented measures. Intelligent Energy Management (IEM) is a holistic approach to energy savings, which will allow CU Boulder to improve building performance, reduce maintenance and energy consumption, and continuously commission campus buildings through predictive analytics and fault diagnostics. Predictive analytics will continuously monitor and determine levels of criticality to analyze work orders for the alarms requiring immediate attention by maintenance staff. By predicting failures and alarming personnel to address the issues in real time, energy can be saved.
Intelligent Energy Management can also provide insight as to why a failure occurred, helping facility management and plant engineers to understand what created the failure.
