Energy Analysis

Medical University of South Carolina


Leach Wallace Associates is providing an analysis of MUSC’s existing chilled water and steam systems to evaluate current operating conditions, viability of selling thermal energy to neighboring facilities, and exploring opportunities for energy upgrades.

The analysis is being accomplished through a series of tasks including: inventory of major building equipment, evaluation of current equipment, evaluation of deferred maintenance, evaluation of interconnection opportunities, and evaluation of preliminary energy sales. The analysis includes an inventory of the major buildings on the campus (25 buildings/plants) of the chilled water and heating energy production assets, including age, capacity, remaining useful life, and the types of systems being served.
