energy sustainability programs for umass amherst
Energy Sustainability Programs for UMass Amherst
  • Steam Trap Program

Undergraduate Research • Partnership with Physical Plant • Energy Efficiency

Steam loss improved, condensate return was increased as a result of the program. Annual cost savings of approximately 10% were achieved.

  • Building Commissioning at UMass, Amherst

Graduate Research • Partnership with Physical Plant • Energy Efficiency

If all buildings on campus were continuously commissioned, CEERE researchers estimate that Amherst campus could achieve savings of approximately $100 million in utility bills over the next 20 years.

  • Computer Model Development for New UMass, Amherst Power Plant

Graduate Research • Partnership with Physical Plant • Combined Heat and Power (Co-Generation)

  • Computer Simulation of the UMass, Amherst Low Pressure Steam Distribution System

Energy Efficiency • Model Development • Performance Monitoring • Partnership with Physical Plant
