Energy Conservation

Energy conservation projects have resulted in a significant reduction of annual utility costs.  A baseline consumption was established and recorded for consumption of:

  • chilled water
  • electricity
  • natural gas
  • steam

As part of Tulane University's commitment to continuous improvement, the operations staff implements energy conservation measures through the following projects:

  • well water reverse osmosis system
  • condensate polisher system 
  • boiler #1 low emissions control system
  • boiler blowdown automation
  • lighting retrofits
  • inlet air cooling for cogeneration system
  • building operating schedule control
  • enthalpy control
