The Pulse Platform provides energy managers at McGill with advanced analysis and tools, and engages students and the wider community with real-time energy dashboards displayed online. The university chose Pulse Energy in 2011, to support their Sustainability Policy’s 12% energy conservation target.
In one instance, analysis provided by the software alerted facilities staff to inefficient overnight demand patterns in two campus buildings, consuming 75,000kWh/month more than the Pulse Adaptive Model predicted. Staff were able to quickly rectify the issues, reducing energy use by 25% and saving $2000 each month with no capital investment.
North America’s leading universities use Pulse Energy solutions to meet conservation targets, ensure persistence of savings and engage the campus community. The software powers the sustainability goals of the University of British Columbia, University of California at Berkeley and Simon Fraser University.
