Smart Buildings Initiative - University of Montana
Smart Buildings Initiative Zach Brown, UM Blake Bjornson, MSU Objectives Control utility costs -> Control cost of education Good for the state, good for the student Address deferred maintenance and comfort issues Safety concerns and efficient operation Reduce energy consumption
Accomplish strategic goals Four Steps 1. 2. 3. 4. Install smart metering equipment Develop metrics and set goals
Implement conservation projects Reinvest savings Install Smart Metering Equipment Measures utility inputs into a building Outputs this data to real-time monitoring system Information is used to identify energy hogs and problem areas Measure results and see improvement and degradation
Control systems based on demand Approximate cost/building We are on our way! (MSU, UM, MSU-B et al.) Energy CAP Monitoring system used by DEQ Energyusage.mt.gov Current data is based on energy bills Input data could be from smart meters
Four Steps 1. 2. 3. 4. Install smart metering equipment Develop metrics and set goals Implement conservation projects Reinvest savings
Develop Metrics and Set Goals Metrics and goals should be campus specific Electric and Gas Metric: Btu/sq.ft. A similar metric can be set for water consumption GoalsLEED certification New buildings EBOM State Code: High Performance Building Standards
High-performance building standards MCA 17-2-213 states that: The department (of administration), in collaboration with the Montana university system and other state agencies, shall adopt high-performance building standards In developing these standards, the department shall consider: a. integrated design principles to optimize energy performance, enhance indoor environmental quality, and conserve natural
resources; b. cost-effectiveness, including productivity, deferred maintenance, and operational considerations; c. environmental, economic, and social sustainability of materials and components; and d. building functionality, durability, and maintenance. LEED is a framework used around the world Four Steps

Implement Conservation Projects 2 categories: Engineering projects Behavior change and building management Engineering Projects Facilities-intensive projects Funding could include:
DEQ State Building Energy Conservation Program Energy Performance Contract LRBP General Fund budgets Inclusion of students important, but minimal Technical internships
Feasibility/design studies Behavioral Projects Student/faculty/staff driven Change must come from within Develop technical working groups, outreach through classes (MSU Architecture) Smart Buildings Initiative behavior change groups classes? Energy internshipsGovernors Energy Intern program

Reinvest savings Savings Reinvestment Utility spending can be separated between state and tuition Savings can be separated proportionally Tuition savings can be reinvested in campus Instruction, Academic Support, Student Services Tuition Control Energy Conservation
Decided by campus Recommendations Establish metrics and goals Btu/sq.ft. High-Performance Building Standards Invest in the infrastructure Continue to support utility savings projects Push for behavioral change provide framework for cultural
