Energy Audit

Illinois Central College

East Peoria, Illinois

 

Henneman Engineering performed an energy audit of both the main campus of Illinois Central College in East Peoria (864,000 square feet) and the North Peoria Campus (247,000 square feet). The audit addressed the following items:

In order to assess the effectiveness of the alternatives, energy models of each building were produced using building and systems software simulation tools. The basic facility characteristics such as envelope construction, building orientation, lighting levels, occupant densities, HVAC systems, environmental set points, and operational usage schedules were incorporated into the baseline facility model and calculated energy demand/consumption results were compared to historical utility bills in order to “calibrate” the model. The various alternatives were then assessed individually for performance and in unison to determine their interaction.
The final report will be used as an energy master plan for the future.
