CASE STUDY

Curtin University,
PERTH

Integration Platform Delivery

BRINGING REAL-TIME DATA TO STUDENTS, ACADEMICS AND FACILITY MANAGERS

THE CHALLENGE

 

  • To develop an innovative energy management platform for Curtin University
  • Forms part of the University’s strategy to attract the best staff and students through using resources more efficiently to improve the appeal of the campus
  • The University wanted to demonstrate leadership in sustainability as students and staff are demanding organisations operate as good corporate citizens and actively help tackle climate change

IBMS SOLUTION

 

  • Deployed Revata™ as a central platform to connect over 1000 meters and sensors across the campus
  • Incorporates data inputs from AEMO (Australian Energy Market Operator) and Bureau of Meteorology to provide a holistic view of power consumption and power generation
  • To make data visible to the users of the buildings, research and teaching staff through web based visualisation

OUTCOMES

  • Enables teaching and research staff to use the campus as a large scale living lab to investigate current energy practices and identify and implement new opportunities by simulating data in real-time
  • Reduced power consumption which included modifying the discharge profile of the thermal storage tank to reduce the demand on the electrical network at peak times
  • Modelled the impact of the thermal load of lighting in the TL Robertson Library, resulting in the installation of new lighting that lead to a two-thirds reduction in energy consumption, the equivalent of installing 10,000sqm of photovoltaic cells
  • Data generated from Revata™ is being used for future infrastructure planning through system capacity analytics for future infrastructure upgrades
