Energy Efficiency – Student Dormitories Energy Dashboards
Slippery Rock University (SRU) and the WPPSEF partnered in 2012 to begin planning the installation of energy dashboards in six of their student dormitories. SRU proposed to install real-time energy dashboards as an educational tool to monitor real time energy and water use. The real-time energy dashboards were installed in 2013 in the six student dormitories, which were occupied by 2,100 students. SRU started to compare energy use in 2014 and documented a reduction of 86,824 KWh in a one-month period (April 2013 vs. April 2014).
