Exploring peak shaving for the University of Montana’s energy demand
This project seeks to identify time intervals where The University of Montana’s energy demand is larger than 5500kW by collecting, cleaning, and displaying power data in near real-time. By providing UM Facilities with visibility into the university’s current power usage, they can utilize the tools at their disposal to reduce the peak energy demand interval and ultimately save money.
