University of Hawaii Completes Energy Platform Across 10 Campuses

The University of Hawaiʻi has announced the completion of an Energy Internet of Things (IoT) platform across its 10 campuses.  The school worked with Blue Pillar and Elemental Excelerator to create an "energy smart university."

Blue Pillar's Energy IoT platform provides the UH Office of Energy Management (OEM) with enhanced visibility into its energy usage by centralizing data across disparate systems and equipment. 

The platform collects and analyzes data from more than 30 of the most energy-intensive buildings across UH Mānoa and is integrated with:

  • Utility substation monitoring,
  • 75 multi-building electric sub-meters,
  • 30 building automation systems from multiple manufacturers, and
  • 44 solar photovoltaic systems and solar inverters.

The energy network is a foundational component of the University of Hawaiʻi's goal to achieve net zero energy use by 2035.  The UH OEM has already used this data to create a baseline on energy consumption and will continue to mine this data to optimize strategies for energy and cost savings for the University of Hawaiʻi.
