Data collected and aggregated for the University of Washington (UW), Seattle, WA. This data was the basis for the analysis and outcomes described in Chapter 17 of the Pacific Northwest Smart Grid Demonstration Project Technology Performance Report Volume 1: Technology Performance (please see Additional Information below). Detailed information about the collected data is in the PDF referenced below.
The University of Washington (UW) at the Seattle campus is a subproject participating in the Pacific Northwest Smart Grid Demonstration (PNWSGD) project. The UW’s goals in the project is to monitor and manage more than fifteen million square feet of space, serve over 40,000 students daily, and provide the university with the expectation of saving over $350,000 annually in energy consumption costs.
The following asset systems were demonstrated at the UW site:
• enabling assets, consisting primarily of data collection infrastructure
• power generation assets, including one steam turbine (Section 17.1), two diesel standby generators (Section 17.2), and two small-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) facilities (Section 17.3)
• building heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) controls and lighting controls (Section 17.4)
• student residence and university facilities pilot sub-metering (Section 17.5)
• a facility energy management system (FEMS) (Section 17.6).
Those asset systems were exploited to conduct six experiments that are the focus of the Technology Performance Report, each test case comprising one major subsection of chapter 17.
