Dalton State College is a four-year academic institution that serves nearly 6,000 students and faculty located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Georgia. When Dalton initiated a campus-wide heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) retrofit for its 11 buildings in 2009, the end goal was to implement an integrated enterprise control system managed by a common front end that could be accessed from anywhere at any time. The facilities team implemented a LonWorks-based building automation system that would be the foundation for future campus efficiency strategies including energy conservation and resource optimization.

Article by Wayne Wiebe, Senior Vice President, Kenmark Group

Two buildings set close to downtown San Jose make up the Echelon campus. Echelon is the inventor of a controls protocol called LonWorks. The buildings have extensive control networks which allow fine grain control of building systems. The structures are panel and single pane glass exterior walls; a standard built-up roof and minimum insulation. The buildings are very susceptible to exterior conditions like outside air temperature (OAT) and thermal load. Fortunately, the management team has made reduction of the utility budget a priority and realized fiscal and sustainability benefits. For the last ten years the cost of electricity has remained nearly flat due to innovative energy conservation programs. They have found that participation in incentive programs like demand response, and peak day pricing yields significant cost reduction. A similar way to reduce cost by implementing short-term consumption control is called demand management.
