Summary

Wake Forest University implemented a multi-phased approach to upgrading and optimizing its chilled water system across its 340-acre campus, served by two plants connected through a common hydraulic piping system. This presentation will outline and discuss the process and experiences of Wake Forest University’s journey toward a total annual savings of approximately 3,000,000 kWh, and substantial water and carbon savings. Learning Objectives: 1. Background of chilled water system and project goals 2. Design process and efficient equipment selection 3. Future growth planning: hydraulic/load analysis 4. Initial energy study and results 5. Implementation process and challenges overcome 6. Analysis of results 7. Future of WF CHW
