DALLAS, Oct. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cenergistic is pleased to announce the renewal and expansion of its Sustainability Solution at Abilene Christian University (ACU). With Cenergistic, ACU has achieved a 25% reduction in energy consumption per square foot, the elimination of 19,321 metric tons of CO2 and $3.5M in savings.

By leveraging Cenergistic, ACU has positively impacted faculty, staff and students, allowing them the comfort they need in classrooms to reach their fullest potential, while instilling a mindset of conservation. In 2017, the ACU Green Initiative was created and set three missions: to promote a culture of sustainability and sustainable practices, promote prudent stewardship of resources and ensure that future generations of ACU students can enjoy the earth. Additionally, ACU and the surrounding community have reached a goal of recycling nearly 54 tons of plastic, cardboard and newspaper.

"We've been paying attention to energy costs for a while," said Kevin Campbell, Senior Vice President of Operations, ACU. "There are two driving factors leading the energy conservation program: one is cost and second is the impact on the environment. Our goal is to keep our buildings comfortable and make sure we are balancing the goal of conservation with student comfort."

The Cenergistic solution applies advanced technology and software that utilizes cloud-based machine learning applications to quickly recognize energy inefficiencies within your buildings. Our onsite team of energy specialists and experts promptly resolve these issues to ensure all systems and equipment are optimized to run at peak performance. Many of ACU's energy inefficiencies (zoning issues, HVAC issues and faulty reheat and lighting systems) were addressed with the support of these state-of-the-art resources that provide real-time energy data and analytics to our team.
