The energy efficiency assessment, implemented at Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Kuntokatu 3 campus, investigated the efficiency performance of the campus buildings. Facility Assessment is an essential component of energy management. On available data, corresponding energy performance over a period of five years formed the basis for benchmarking and comparison. The qualitative monitoring of energy consumption of key independent variables such as electrical and heat energy use on demand, by the facility manager was, used to assess performance and efficiency against relevant benchmarks. The success of this practical work was, established by identifying the right kinds of data and the allocation of relevant statistical methods to correspond to the independent variable. Monitoring, Targeting and Reporting (MT&R), the core technique applied, helped detect noticeable deficiencies in the traditional performance indices or energy intensity. Lighting, Computers, and Heating Ventilation and Air Conditions systems showed grey areas needing, more efficient changes of nearly 20% of feasible reduction, with strategic implementation of retrofits and strategic power management of computers.
