President's PIECE

"As colleges seek endowment returns, energy investments could be safest bet"
Peter Fairbanks, President of Fairbanks Energy, authors a piece at Boston Business Journal
on investing in efficiency improvements at college and university campuses. 

peter_fairbanks.jpg"In the last 3 - 4 years there has been a significant movement to invest in green improvements on the university campus, primarily to promote sustainability. Sustainability and efficiency improvements are good policies for many reasons: wise use of limited resources, reduction of pollution, work towards going carbon neutral, etc. In the narrow focus of making the best endowment investment, the most compelling reason for investing in efficiency improvements on the college campus is that they produce both the safest and the highest financial return of any investment that could be made."

Case Study spotlight

Analog Devices

Analog Devices' Norwood, MA campus had an antiqued BMS system that needed to be updated due to instability and loss of support for the existing supervisor’s operating system. They called in Fairbanks Energy's team of engineers, who completed a full Building Management System Upgrade at the campus. As a result, Analog’s upgraded BMS now allows for better control over the various systems in their facility, with the ability to manage all of the corporate campus’s monitoring, alarming, scheduling, and history functions seamlessly.
