Schneider Electric Helps University of Notre Dame Enhance Efficiency with Smart Buildings

By Ken Briodagh

Schneider Electric has announced that it is working with the University of Notre Dame to implement its EcoStruxure Building 3.0 in almost 100 buildings on campus. According to the release, the University will benefit from increased levels of operational data visibility and control to better manage building performance, occupant comfort and energy efficiency.

Last year, the University undertook a modernization project to upgrade its building management technology to increase operational efficiency. The University reportedly decided to upgrade existing Schneider Electric systems to EcoStruxure Building Operation 3.0 to enable new levels of IP connectivity, building analytics, integration with metering and facility operations and increased cybersecurity.

This transition also brought existing product families into the EcoStruxure Buildings with a user interface that overlays analytics for energy efficiency, occupant comfort. EcoStruxure Building Operation facilitates the secure exchange of data from Schneider Electric and third-party systems, and it reportedly allows the University to replace network controllers, field devices and sensors in future construction.

Project planning began in 2019 and is expected to take 8-12 months. The University decided to start the transition in the facilities department building to gain hands on experience and then decide how to take it forward across the campus. The University has selected 6 buildings to upgrade and validate the conversion and implementation process.
