Applicable to: Campuses, Transit
To encourage the use of energy management systems coordinated with the project’s master controller or project operator.
Campuses and Transit
Install and use a building automation system (BAS) or energy management system (EMS) capable of interfacing with the project’s communication network and with the project’s master controller or user interface for the project’s central generation, heating, and cooling plant.
Calculate the percentage of buildings with BAS or EMS using the following formula:
%BldgBAS = %TypeA + %TypeB + %TypeC + %TypeD
%TypeA = Percentage of buildings with a BAS or EMS capable of controlling interior lighting scheduling and automatic shutoff.
%TypeB = Percentage of buildings with a BAS or EMS capable of optimizing heating and cooling system performance with the following minimum capabilities:
- Direct digital control
- Programmability for energy conservation and system optimization (setpoint reset, optimized start/stop, night setback)
- Advanced scheduling (weekends, holidays)
%TypeC = Percentage of buildings with a BAS or EMS capable of reducing HVAC and lighting loads in response to remote signals from the project operator, with the following minimum capabilities:
- Notification for alarms and system events o Remote real-time monitoring of critical set points related to asset operation
%TypeD = Percentage of buildings with a BAS or EMS capable of communicating with and providing data to the project’s master controller or central plant operators (not just building operators)
Sum the percentage of each type of building and refer to Table 1 to determine points earned.
