Ohio State Energy Partners presents first energy conservation projects

A $3.4-million campus lighting project and a $2.3-million HVAC upgrade for Dreese Laboratory are the first planned energy conservation proposals as part of The Ohio State University’s $1-billion private energy-management deal (see our April 12, 2017 blog post), The Lantern reports. Ohio State Energy Partners “will upgrade existing lighting to LEDs in 51 Columbus campus buildings” including Ohio Stadium, University Hall and Independence Hall, according to the article. Dreese Laboratory upgrades include “enhancing the HVAC control system, insulating steam valves and adding a heat recovery chiller, which captures heat from the existing system that can be used for other purposes.” Those upgrades will “reduce energy consumption in the building by 37 percent.” For more, read the full article
