utiliVisor, an energy monitoring and submetering firm, has formed a partnership with SUNY Maritime College that will facilitate the implementation of energy efficiency measures at SUNY facilities while creating training for Maritime cadets.
As part of the partnership, Maritime will install a utiliVisor operations center at the school. Faculty and students will be trained to run the operations center, which also will be used to teach cadets the theoretical aspects of HVAC systems and the analysis of those systems in actual buildings.
“Energy measurement and monitoring are the basis of any efficiency program and are essential for the energy reduction roles of public and government facilities,” noted Richard Angerame, president of utiliVisor.
“The utiliVisor operations center at Maritime provides a hands on training tool for cadets… and enables the school to assist in the creation of energy and operating cost reduction strategies for itself and sister institutions.”
