Durham Public Schools Energy Efficiency Projects Tour (May 23, 2017)

May Meeting

Join us on May 23rd with Brian Callaway for an update on Durham Schools Energy Projects.

Does this picture remind you of the elementary school you attended? The learning environment can definitely be improved while conserving energy.  Durham Public Schools has recently embarked on two district-wide energy initiatives that have been transforming the learning environment: the upgrade of building automation systems to the newly released Tridium Niagara 4 platform and the replacement of fluorescent lighting with new “smart” LED lighting technologies that feature wireless sensing, dimming and customized programming. Join us at Glenn Elementary, where both initiatives have been implemented, for a show-and-tell discussion of energy investments recently made and more that are in the pipeline. Durham Public Schools operates a highly decentralized network of over 50 schools and administrative sites with a building stock of nearly 6-million square feet across Durham County. In order to complete these projects, DPS has leaned on numerous firms that involve a significant collection of local AEE chapter members including Brady, CMS, Dewberry, ECS, Integrity Services Group, Mayer Electric, MBP and PDC.
