Jeff Goebel, physical plant manager, has been accepted to present at the 2012 Honeywell Users Group (HUG) Symposium in Scottsdale, Ariz. The symposium is June 10-14, and Goebel will present as part of the Energy Track break out session. The theme for the conference is Innovation and Collaboration: Influencing Our Future.

Goebel will present on energy savings in relation to MSUM’s integration of building schedules with the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.

Goebel recently presented at the MnSCU IT conference on EMS/HVAC integration and received the Outstanding Achievement Award recognizing the complexities and success of these two systems operating together.

Goebel, Kim Owen, and Brian Oxton from the physical plant, along with Bryan Kotta from the IT department have worked collaboratively for the past several years to implement a campus wide EMS/HVAC/Door Control integration system that saves the campus nearly $1 million a year in energy costs.

Honeywell is a Fortune 100 company that invents and manufactures technologies to address tough challenges linked to global macrotrends, such as safety, security, and energy. The symposium attendees network, share best practices, exchange ideas, learn about new technologies and project implementations and applications.
