A new kiosk has been constructed on campus as part of an energy project coordinated by faculty members Nathaniel Greene and Jeff Brunskill and assistant director of facilities management John Holtzman.
It was designed to educate the Bloomsburg University community about solar energy and the university’s energy consumption using Lucid Design Group’s Building Dashboard software.
The project aims to develop energy-saving strategies for the university.
Energy use in Hartline Science Center, Student Recreation Center, Nelson Field House, Columbia Residence Hall and Elwell Residence Hall are displayed. The kiosk and the data that it tracks and displays will be used by Bloomsburg students in energy- and environment-related courses and research students.
The data and trends revealed by the Building Dashboard software also will be used to develop strategies to reduce energy use.
