Vancouver, BC (Vocus) February 26, 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 15.3% savings in energy consumption on day 12 of the Olympic Games in Vancouver. The tracker has also measured total savings of 16% since the Games began.
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.
Based on the day’s numbers, the UBC Winter Sports Centre achieved a high level of energy savings by consuming 2,200 kWh less than what the venue would have used if the current sustainability measures were not in place. That translates to a 13.4% savings in energy consumption.
