the eiu program
The EIU Program
  • Aggressive Energy Performance Contracting (EPC)
  • Fuel choice flexibility (Coal vs. gas/oil)
  • Incidental small in-house projects with short paybacks
  • Electric rate management (Illinois State Universities Consortium: ISU, WIU, SIUC, SIUE and EIU)
  • Scheduling and optimization using BAS
  • Maintenance training/ operations program improvements such as the Building Operator Certification program managed by DCEO/MEEA;
  • Utilities sub-metering
  • Steam system: Pressure reduction, boiler tuning and combustion monitoring
  • Campus awareness and partnering
  • Develop a campus energy policy
  • EIU Energy and Sustainability Committee

EIU Performance Contracting

  • Phase I (Gov’s Pilot 1994- CMS COPS$$- Energy Masters)
    • 1.7M GSF upgraded, $3.4M project
    • Energy Conservation Measures Installed
      • 10525 energy efficient lighting upgrades
      • 697 variable air-volume dampers
      • 39 variable speed motors
      • 1,095 additional building automation points
      • An Energy Management System upgrade
      • Minor steam and electric metering
    • Annual savings $533,000 guaranteed for 10 years
    • This project was paid off in December 2006

EIU Performance Contracting

  • Phase II (EIU-managed 2001 - COPS $$- Honeywell)
    • 1.5M GSF upgraded, $10.8M project
    • Energy Conservation Measures Installed
      • 18,363 energy efficient lighting upgrades (T-8 and CFL)
      • 810 water conserving (1.5 gpm)) shower heads
      • 1,117 low water consumption flush valves and toilets (1.6 gpf)
      • 1,469 faucet aerators (0.5 gpm)
      • 118 energy efficient washing machines (Maytag Neptune)
      • Variable speed pump and fan upgrades
      • High efficiency electric motor replacements
      • Pipe insulation
      • Upgrades/expansion of building automation system (BAS)
      • Replacement of swimming pool filtration system
      • Replacement of five (5) large central chillers
      • Expansion of the campus chilled water loop
    • Expected annual ECM savings $1,332,000
    • Annual savings $1,200,000 guaranteed for 10 years

EIU Performance Contracting

Phase II Enhancement (EIU-managed- 2003 COPS$$- Honeywell)

  • Supplemental ECM’s installed, $2.6M project
  • Energy Conservation Measures Installed
    • Replacement of an additional chiller
    • Lighting upgrades in the Student Union
    • Upgrading building automation systems
    • Energy efficient exit lights (LED’s)
    • Replacement of chilled water coils
    • Optimizing ventilation rates with CO2 control
    • Global automation of campus chilled water generation and distribution
  • Expected annual ECM savings $315,000
  • Annual savings $295,000 guaranteed for 10 years

EIU Performance Contracting

Savings in Energy Units

Red line is resident population

Blue line is water used


Waterrates have increased70%

  • Water costs have decreased26%

The EIU Experience


  • Annual savings guaranteed: $2,017,000
  • Annual savings expected: $2,303,000
  • Net annual to reinvest: $286,000
  • $16.7M in infrastructure, systems and performance improvements paid from savings over 10 years
  • Out of that sum, $13.2M applied to deferred maintenance reductions

The EIU Experience


  • CO2 emissions reduced by 64,000 tons per year
  • SO2 emissions reduced by 600 tons per year
  • NOx emissions reduced by 240 tons per year
  • Lower fresh water resource usage
  • Lower waste water generation
  • Lower landfill input
  • Lower overall thermal rejection to ambient

A Remaining EIU Sustainability Opportunity

  • 10MW Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant (new 20-year duration EPC will play a MAJOR part in making this feasible for EIU: RFP is now on the street)
  • Base-fueled with biomass with possible capability to “flex” to alternative fuels with minor re-tooling
  • Over $14,000,000 in deferred maintenance cost avoidance from investing in a new CHP
  • Abundant, sustainable, environmentally soft, local and low-cost long-term energy source
  • Leverage additional ECMs in this project to support the CHP such as higher voltage metering, science lab ventilation, chilled water upgrades, BAS optimization, lighting, water, etc.

Sustainability Comments

  • Support LEED concepts in the Capital project process
  • Vigorously develop 20 year EPC opportunities (new legislation was a great move!!)
  • Continuously improve maintenance skills through training

The best energy saver is a “world class” maintenance program

  • Incorporate sustainable energy sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biomass

Accept the fact thatthese options may feature more complicated infrastructure, high front-end costs and long paybacks

  • Building use schedule/temperature optimization (BAS)

Can easily conflict with expectations of the customers

  • Engage the campus community

Motivate employees and users to conserve- fight apathy!

  • Aggressively develop all no-cost/low-cost opportunities

Many small opportunities usually exist but are ignored
