Presentation Transcript

  1. Partnering with Utilities for Energy Efficient Dorms – Water Heating Project Study and Other Ways to Reduce Energy Peter Duby, Pepperdine University Gabriel Ayala, Enovative Group Inc.

  2. Defining Sustainability • Not one size fits all • Institution and leading department • Purpose, Service, and Leadership

  3. Why Sustainability is Important • Opportunity and responsibility • Each student is different • Community of awareness and conservation

  4. Challenges • Funding • Engaging entire community • Choosing sustainability initiatives

  5. Sustainability Practices • Recycled water for irrigation • Drescher campus native vegetation • Recycling • Organic Garden

  6. Energy Efficiency “Examine initiatives to reduce reliance on third parties in meeting energy needs for the Malibu campus. Prepare and present a validated plant to reduce costs by at least 10% ($280,000) over FY 2008.” • Economic benefits • President’s energy reduction goal • Lighting, EMS expansion, virtualization

  7. Working with Utilities • Rebates and incentives • Objective verification • SCE $100,000 audit • So Cal Gas pool cover

  8. Residential Living Space • Spend the most time in living space • No parents • Simple energy saving • SCE metering • Demand circulation pumps

  9. Demand Controlled Recirculation Systems in University Dorm Buildings Improving Hot Water Distribution and Saving Energy Using Advanced Recirculation Controls

  10. What Are Demand Controlled Pumps? • Advanced controls for central domestic hot water recirculation pumps • Reduces Boiler Fire Time (Saves Gas) • Reduces Pump Run Time (Saves Electricity) • Reduces Wear and Tear on Pipes (Pinhole Leaks)

  11. 4) As water is being circulated, thepipes are constantly radiating heat into the surrounding environment 5) When water returns, it is much cooler from the heat loss, so the boiler constantly fires on to reheat the water 1) Cold water supply 2) Water heated to approximately140℉ 3) Hot water is continuously circulated throughout the building from the storage tank

  12. When does a recirculation pump NOT need to run? • If there is no user demand for hot water • If there is already hot water at the point of use

  13. Demand Controls Regulate Hot Water Distribution • Uses sensors that detect demand and water temperature only runs when needed • Runs about 1 hour per day total, instead of 24/7 • Heat losses reduced, boiler fires up 10-30% less often

  14. Pepperdine University Dorms • Monitored a 30 unit dorm for 4 weeks • Analysis during semester and into winter break period • Savings = • 32% during occupied times • 46% = during unoccupied times

  15. Pepperdine Pump Runtime (1 Month)

  16. Pepperdine Boiler Gas Valve ‘Open’ Time

  17. Chapman University Case Study Dorm #1- South Morlan Dorm #2- Sandhu Hall • Baseline WH Gas Use: 6055 therms (annual) • Projected Energy Use, Post Measure: 4095 therms • Savings: 1960 therms • 25% During Semester • 48% During Breaks • Baseline WH Gas Use: 9316 therms(annual) • Projected Energy Use, Post Measure: 7423 therms • Savings: 1893 therms • 13% During Semester • 48% During Breaks
