Royal Roads University
FRESCo conducted an extensive AHRAE Level-2 energy audit for over 20 buildings on this university campus.
The assessment included all major systems in the buildings which utilize energy (gas and electricity) as well as water. It included end-use analysis and performance benchmarking; identified potential improvements with Energy Conservation Measures; and provided additional analysis, support, or training on priority items identified during the audit.
The full Audit report explained findings, recommendations and GHG reduction strategies and identified potential funding sources such as grants, and utility rebates associated with Energy Conservation Measures. Life-cycle costing included energy consumption and utility costs, carbon tax, and operations & maintenance (O&M) costs including equipment replacement cost at end-of-lifespan. Options were also explored as long-term GHG solutions for a centralized Ground Water Heat Pump (GWHP) system to supplant the gas-fired boilers present at the campus core buildings, and consolidation of administrative workspaces into a single, energy-efficient facility.
