EnerNOC Inc. says Northern Illinois University (NIU) has selected its EfficiencySMART Commissioning solution to improve energy use at the university's Stevenson Towers residence halls.

In this retro-commissioning project, EnerNOC will identify and address energy-efficiency measures in the residence halls, which house approximately 1,800 students. These services are funded through an incentive program by the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity and managed by the Smart Energy Design Assistance Center.

The Stevenson Towers consist of four 13-story high-rise buildings. Through this project, EnerNOC will establish baseline building performance before assessing potential operating improvements for all air-handling units, pumps and a sample of fan coil units.

Tests will also be conducted to verify functionality of points controlled and monitored by the buildings' energy management and control system, and any deficiencies discovered will be logged and prioritized by cost and potential savings to maximize the return on NIU's energy-efficiency spend.
