End-use energy indicator approach to improve energy performance at the National University of Colombia Bogotá, under the parameters of the ISO 50001 standard
Keywords:IDE, energy, consumption, university, KPI
The university belongs to the services sector, which is why it cannot implement traditional industry indicators such as energy consumption per unit produced. For this reason, we propose indicators for the final use of energy. The indicators were developed through an energy review process of the information in the database of advanced energy meters with the support of the Specialist in Geographic Information Systems of the Environmental Management Office (EMO). Additionally, we considered several existing reports that characterized the final use of energy for some buildings and essential data for defining the percentages each final use will have within the conglomerate of loads registered. Continuity was also given to this process by collecting face-to-face information with the support of each building’s environmental manager. This article shows the behavior of two buildings of the National University Bogotá, the Uriel Gutiérrez building and the Roberto Franco Station, to propose an indicator of final energy use. This approach enabled determining in which end-use the load has the highest consumption, taking into account that this may contribute to the management system energy of the university. This article uses the guidelines implemented in the ISO 50001 standard.
