District Energy System Re-engineering at Brown: Bottom Up Phasing Approach 

02-28-2019 16:00

Summary

Ambitious campus modernization plans are often constrained by scheduling needs around seasonal usage, O&M limits, and financial planning for equipment replacement. Brown University and design-build partner Ecosystem Energy will discuss how they are phasing the re-engineering of a district energy network to create a more efficient, lower temperature system. This process includes converting buildings heating systems, installation of new low temperature approach heat exchange hub stations, redesigning the central heating plant and adapting existing district piping and control systems for a new lower temp design. Phasing will be “bottom up” to ensure the central plant can be maintained and operated during all phases of the conversion, while select buildings will have new independent energy systems, designed to ensure minimal disruption to the institution.
