Energy Monitoring Operations Center to Facilitate Energy Efficiency Projects While Offering Students Training and Mentoring Opportunities

utiliVisor, a provider of energy monitoring and submetering services, has formed a partnership with SUNY Maritime College that will facilitate the implementation of energy efficiency measures at SUNY facilities while creating training and mentoring opportunities for Maritime cadets.

utiliVisor is an energy advisory firm providing oversight solutions to large commercial offices, hospitals, institutional and educational buildings, and mission critical facilities nationwide. The firm offers solutions for continuous energy oversight of central utility plant environments and utility submetering systems.  Its third party independent measurement and verification services enable owners to achieve significant savings on energy costs.

As part of the partnership, Maritime will install a utiliVisor operations center at the school. Maritime’s faculty and students will be trained to run the operations center, which also will be used to teach cadets the theoretical aspects of HVAC systems and the analysis of those systems in actual buildings.

“Energy measurement and monitoring are the basis of any efficiency program and are essential for the energy reduction roles of public and government facilities,” noted Richard Angerame, President of utiliVisor and a graduate of Maritime.  “The development of a utiliVisor operations center at Maritime will benefit the school in several ways – it provides a hands on training tool for cadets, offers Maritime the opportunity to generate income from its services, and enables the school to assist in the creation of energy and operating cost reduction strategies for itself and sister institutions.”

According to Dr. Richard Burke, Executive Director of the Global Maritime Center at Maritime College, “SUNY Maritime is excited about both the educational prospects and energy saving opportunities this partnership with utiliVisor represents.  We hope to enlist support from other SUNY campuses and state institutions, which would enable us to generate a great deal of momentum.”
