Objectives: The objective and purpose of the Office of Energy Management (OEM) Program is to identify and implement strategies to achieve energy and other utility savings in all TFC Facilities and at the same time maintaining a healthy and comfortable working environment.
OEM uses following strategies and others to achieve the above mentioned goals:
Energy Management also works across the lines of multiple program areas to achieve these goals; from reviewing repairs and equipment replacements for Operations and Maintenance, to implementing operations initiatives through Building Automation and Controls, to consultation with project management on deferred maintenance projects.
Energy Work Group Meetings: OEM organizes regular meetings for the TFC Energy Work Group which includes two TFC Commissioners, FDC Management, TFC Fiscal Management, and Property/Real Estate Management. In the 2014 calendar year, OEM will primarily focus on three areas in order to maximize results:
While concentrating on these main focus areas, OEM will continue to actively manage and study other means to further increase energy efficiency across the TFC platform.
Resource Conservation Committee (RCC): In March of 2014, OEM initiated the establishment of the Resource Conservation Committee (RCC). This committee’s charge will be to coordinate and promote activities related to energy and resource conservation and serve as a conduit between the TFC Energy Work Group, the Commission and the rest of the agency in matters related to energy and resource conservation.
The first meeting of RCC was on March 27th, 2014. The meeting was attended by the TFC Executive Director and directors of all other departments. RCC plans to meet monthly until a number of initiatives are developed at which point the meetings will transition to a quarterly frequency. Going forward, any major decisions and developments will be reported to commission.
