AMX GREEN CAMPUS
Higher Education institutions spend a significant portion of their annual
operating budgets on utility services, diverting funds from valuable
programmatic and community-building activities. Higher-education institutions
are feeling pressure to reduce maintenance and operations budgets caused by
difficult economic conditions and rising costs – especially energy. Colleges
and universities spend close to $2 billion each year on energy. The
situation is expected to escalate as total world consumption of marketed
energy is projected to increase by 44% from 2006 to 2030.
An energy management solution is integral for campuses to create a green and sustainable environment.
• Room/Central Control provides control of lights, thermo stats and
electronic equipment along with motion sensor and automated lighting based on
the occupancy of a room. Daylight Harvesting provides sustainable
architecture and building controls that reduce the use of artificial
lighting with motorized shades when natural daylight is available, in order
to reduce energy consumption.
• Equipment Monitoring provides reporting capabilities that create
instant web-based and customized reports such as lamp hours, system and
device usage, and source usage.
• Power Distribution monitors energy consumption of each connected
component and restricts power to any or all devices when not in use and is
flexible and can reduce wasteful standby power usage.
