CITYWIDE ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES LAUNCHES MOBILE REAL-TIME ENERGY TRACKING AT 280 MUNICIPAL BUILDINGS
Innovative technology to track one-third of city government electrical energy usage
New York, NY – September 19, 2017 Department of Citywide Administrative Services Commissioner Lisette Camilo announced the mobile launch of near-real-time electricity monitoring capabilities for City energy managers. City staff now have an easy-to-access tool to track usage on the go at more than 280 facilities, representing about a third of total City government electric demand.
The Enertrac system, developed by DCAS Energy Management and its vendor NuEnergen, provides facility operators with an easy way to visualize energy consumption in near real-time and to access data, an important step in developing plans to reduce building energy use. The new mobile version of Enertrac provides information and alerts in the field where they can be most useful. The installation of real-time electric meters at 280 buildings, gets DCAS 40% to its 2023 goal of achieving real-time metering for 80% of electric in city government buildings.
“DCAS is committed to deploying cutting-edge technical solutions to increase the energy efficiencies of our aging building stock,” said DCAS Commissioner Lisette Camilo. “The installation of real-time electric meters provides city staff with access to more granular energy data and is just one of the technologies DCAS is using to help the City reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 35% by 2025.”
“The launch builds on the success of the demand response program that contributed over 75MW (Mega-Watt) of potential emergency reductions to the City’s electric grid,” said Chief Energy Officer Anthony Fiore. “It boosts our continuous pursuit of opportunities to carry out our commitment to improve air quality for all New Yorkers and mitigate the impact of climate change.”
As of summer 2017, more than 400 facilities across 23 agencies and cultural organizations are enrolled in the City’s demand response program. DCAS Energy Management recently received the 2017 Institutional Energy Management Award from the Association of Energy Engineers for achieving national and international prominence in promoting the practices and principles of energy engineering and energy management.
DCAS Energy Management (DEM) manages the energy accounts and energy efficiency initiatives for the City of New York. DEM is also responsible for implementing programs and projects to support reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from municipal buildings and operations 80% by 2050, as outlined in the One City, Built to Last green buildings plan.
The Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) ensures that all City agencies have the critical resources and support needed to provide the best possible services to the public. We do this in part, through working with City agencies with needs in recruiting, hiring and training; providing facilities management for 55 public buildings; purchasing, selling and leasing city property; purchasing over $1 billion in supplies and equipment annually; and implementing conservation programs throughout City facilities
