In March 2013, Vancouver Community College hired Prism Engineering as their Energy Manager. Our role is to be an advocate at the college for energy efficiency and at Prism, we take a holistic approach to energy management. We are working to make changes at the organizational level, to implement cost effective energy savings projects and to create creative behaviour change campaigns that get everyone saving energy.
In our first quarter, we’ve identified a collection of projects that could save the college an estimated $100,000 a year. We also developed a customized framework for energy + engagement campaigns, with the goal of saving 2% in energy consumption over the year. We look forward to working with Vancouver Community College and helping them achieve cost savings through sound energy management practices.
