IPRO 497-213 Energy Efficiency Strategies for Chicago Buildings (ECA)

There are many old, energy inefficient buildings that need upgrading, but due to code and regulations restraints there are not always viable, cost-effective solutions (as outlined by the national competition guidelines of the National Electrical Contractors Association™ (NECA)). These buildings pose adverse conditions to the environment and people with disabilities, offering poor or outdated access and costly energy consumption patterns.

The IPRO team will follow guidelines of the NECA Green Energy Audit to for a building that is selected, offering recommendations of energy efficiency improvements and smart technology solutions as part of the NECA National Electrical Contractors' Association national green energy challenge, competing with several other universities. An energy audit will be conducted working under auspices of the IIT Office of Energy and Sustainability and ECA that offers maximum Return on Investment and most viable Green, cost and energy efficiency improvement. A final report and poster will document the team's analysis and recommendations. The team will use lumen meters and infrared test equipment to support its data collection efforts.

The top three teams nationally will be invited to participate in the NECA conference in Boston to make a presentation that determines the final three rankings. A goal of this IPRO team is to make the final three!

IPRO 497-214 Electro-Mechanical Underground Utility Vault Design at IIT

The IPRO team will work with the IIT Office of Energy and sustainability (OCES) and Contractors Power & Light Company, an ECA member, to refine and develop a viable electronic monitoring system and address other issues associated with the aging vault infrastructure. This may encompass energy and environmental sustainability issues, chemical structure analysis, improved design, restoration improvements, monitoring, and replacement. The team will visit a vault, and the plan is to observe a restoration of a vault which has been agreed with Uretek (a potential additional sponsor of this IPRO).
