State-of-the-art, energy-efficient facilities are now emerging on campuses across the US, and for a variety of reasons: One practical consideration is that such buildings bring down energy costs, which are now soaring. Facing rising expenditures and a tightening of potential revenue, universities are looking for ways to reduce operating costs, and more efficient buildings offer them one way to meet that goal. Yet, helping to conserve natural resources and improve the environment also has become a common theme in academic circles. Consequently, some members of this community feel an obligation to lead the charge with novel energy initiatives. In this article, the author talks about the movement toward making campus edifices smarter through intelligent building management. He stresses that when IT and Facilities team up for "intelligent" building management, efficiency, savings, and user benefits soar.
