Read the full story from the University of Wisconsin Waukesha.

In an effort to make the University of Wisconsin-Waukesha more energy efficient, an in-depth energy analysis of all campus facilities is underway by Honeywell. The audit, which began on Nov. 30, will take five to six months to complete, said Mike Riemer, building superintendent.

The purpose of this analysis is to identify opportunities for energy savings and infrastructure improvements in regards to lighting, mechanical, electrical, water, building envelope and other areas. Based upon a preliminary analysis, Honeywell has identified savings opportunities in excess of 20%.
