Energy Management and Environmental Controls Systems (EMECS)

EMECS provides remote monitoring & control of temperature conditions in campus buildings, trouble shooting operating problems, and optimizing operations for energy management.  Following is a summary of equipment/systems maintained and tasks performed:

  1. Remote monitoring and control of space temperatures in buildings.
  2. Respond to building occupant hot and cold call problem service requests.
  3. Trouble-shoot operations problems of HVAC systems.
  4. Ensure reliable operation of all VAV boxes, damper motors, relays, control valves, thermostats, and other associated control systems accessories in the building.
  5. Identify and implement energy conservation projects.
  6. Conduct in-house and retro-commissioning of existing buildings to optimize building HVAC systems for energy management and occupant comfort.
  7. Monitor and maintain campus auxiliary utility metering.
  8. Operate and maintain building air compressors used for control systems and lab air.
