Energy Challenge Pilot of the Campus Energy Feedback System

April 21st, 2014 @ 7:32 am by Camille Kirk

This guest post comes from Kiernan Salmon, Energy Analyst with the UC Davis Energy Conservation Office:

UC Davis Staff and Students! Are you aware of how much energy you use at work each day? What about how much it takes to keep UC Davis campus buildings running? The Energy Conservation Office (ECO) wants to provide you with this information!

The Student Staff from the ECO are in the process of creating a web-based system, called the Campus Energy Feedback System or CFES. This system will allow you to see how energy intensive your everyday activities are, learn what individual practices you can change to use less, compare current use with historical use and provide feedback to the ECO to make your work environment more sustainable.

A CEFS web page was piloted in the Tercero Residence Halls as part of the 2014 Go Zero Waste Dorm Energy Challenge. Challenge participants could log on to the CEFS web page to view their energy use, earn conservation badges, and track their building’s progress. This dorm energy web page is still viewable at http://eco.ucdavis.edu.

The Energy Conservation Office is expanding the CEFS web page to other buildings on campus. If you want to learn about your energy consumption, stay tuned for news on the Campus Energy Dashboard.

  1. Its is good to hear and read that your school caters energy saving. This might help in conserving energy not only in your schools but also on the community and the planet earth. I wanted t check if students will follow these directives and conserved energy all the times.
