Energy Management Controls


Santa Clara University boasts one of the earliest and largest TRANE Tracer Summit Control energy management systems in the western United States. As such, the Utilities Department is responsible for maintaining and leveraging this system to control Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC), lighting, and indoor air quality systems throughout campus. Additionally, they utilize unique control schemes to reduce energy consumption and provide a high quality indoor air environment. »Info

University Temperature Standards

In order to maintain a quality environment for all individuals, the University President instituted a temperature zone of 68* to 78* for all controlled spaces. If the temperature of a space falls within this range, Utilities is not provided the leniency to make alterations.

Energy Management Online

EMS online provides additional resources for on-site technicians; who now carry mini-computers with them on service calls in order to obtain detailed information regarding the controls at the location, while remaining on-site and interacting with the client. The 24 hours a day, 7 days a week nature of the University, requires that controls be monitored in an equivalent schedule. Therefore, the Utilities EMS can be accessed via a web client for authorized users. »Info
