Mississippi State University

To meet energy-efficiency goals set by the university's administration, the Campus Services Organization identified an array of facility upgrades and retrofits. In addition to high-efficiency boiler upgrades — including a multi-million dollar conversion of the campus's central steam plant to high-efficiency hot-water condensing units — the department's staff planned and executed upgrades of building automation systems in more than 30 facilities, which account for as much as a 50 percent drop in individual-building energy use. Since 2006, the resulting Energy Management Program has yielded a 37 percent drop in energy use per square foot, accounting for more than $23 million in avoided utility expenses.
