On February 17, 2011, Jeff Goebel, Physical Plant Manager at Minnesota State University at Moorhead (MSUM), received an Outstanding Service Award. Jeff said the award is a direct result of the effort he and his team have put into integrating energy management and control systems with Dean Evans EMS® using Events2HVAC™.
The annual award is given by the Finance Division of the Office of the Chancellor for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities in recognition of leadership and team effort for excellence in financial management and facilities management.
More than 260 rooms in 17 buildings on the MSUM campus are currently integrated using Events2HVAC, and the resulting energy and labor savings are significant. “My reduction in the last calendar year of electricity usage was 13%,” Goebel said last October, “and that is especially remarkable because we added 43,000 square feet to our campus.”
“Of course it is not just electricity,” Goebel explained, “it’s also conserving heating fuel as well because when space is not scheduled, it becomes unoccupied in the system and air flows are either reduced or cut off to the those spaces. So we are saving not just the electricity of running fans or cooling systems, but also the heating involved in ventilating extra space during winter.”
Goebel and his team are also using Events2HVAC to control door access for some classrooms. They are finding that implementing door access control with Event2HVAC is saving additional labor for scheduling access and also for maintenance and cleaning in the rooms.
Congratulations to Jeff and his team on receiving this prestigious award!
