State-of-the-art technology results in big energy savings at Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning (North Campus)

Chief Energy Conservation Officer of Ontario awards Certificate of Recognition

(Etobicoke, Ontario, June 4, 2007)  Chief Energy Conservation Officer of Ontario Peter Love presented a Certificate of Recognition to Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning today for their energy conservation efforts at their North Campus.  Humber has just completed the installation of a unique, new cooling system which is 50% more energy efficient than the old cooling system, and is expected to save over $100,000 in energy and operating costs, and reduce green house gas emissions by 280 tonnes each year.  

Called the Hartman Loop, the new cooling system is the first installation of its kind in Canada.  It is a dynamic control strategy that electronically co-ordinates the operation of the chillers, pumps, and cooling towers as an integrated system.  The programming involved in this technology takes all the factors that contribute to producing and distributing chilled water, and calculates and adjusts equipment automatically to optimize equipment performance and minimize energy consumption.   Additionally, this system is free of harmful, ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons.

Mr. Love and Humber President-elect John Davies, who hosted the event and accepted the certificate on behalf of Humber, flipped the switch and turned-on the Hartman Loop at the certificate presentation today.

Mr. Love addressed the crowd; “Humber is to be commended for their energy conservation efforts.  They are creating tomorrow’s leaders by demonstrating leadership and innovation, helping to build a culture of conservation in Ontario.”

“It is imperative that Humber lead the way in sustainability and new technology,” said Mr. Davies.  “By using state-of-the-art technology, we are benefiting the environment and reducing our operating costs, while creating a comfortable learning environment.”
