Vancouver, BC (Vocus) February 20, 2010
Pulse Energy, the energy management software provider to the 2010 Olympic Games, released figures from the company’s Venue Energy Tracker today revealing a savings of 135,716 kilowatt hours of electricity (kWh) during the first week of competition, which is a 16 percent reduction compared to unmonitored consumption levels. That’s enough for Julia Murray, a Canadian freestyle skier, to race down the ski-cross course more than 14 million times.
Using Pulse Energy’s software, the Venue Energy Tracker monitors energy consumption at nine key Olympic sites and venues, marking the first time in Olympic history that venues have monitored and publicly reported on energy consumption during the Games. Each participating site has a dashboard monitoring real-time energy usage, enabling facility managers to make instant adjustments to venue energy use.
According to the Venue Energy Tracker, the Richmond Olympic Oval achieved a high level of energy savings this week by consuming 40,176 kWh less than what the venue would have used if the current sustainability measures were not in place.
