  2. 2. Massachusetts Maritime Academy Established in 1891 Co-educational public university ~1600 Regiment of Cadets Learn-Do-Learn philosophy
  3. 3. Powering MMA • Renewable Energy Systems • Wind turbine generator • Solar photovoltaic arrays • Solar lighting • Solar thermal system • Geothermal energy system • Alternative Energy Systems • Combined heat and power • Emerging Technology • Hydrokinetic turbines • Campus Decentralization • Conversion from heating oil • High Efficiency Boilers • Rooftop energy recovery units • Variable speed drives • Efficient lighting • LED and fluorescent lighting • Daylighting • Occupancy sensors
  4. 4. Wind Energy • Turbine Facts • First state owned wind turbine • Operation started June 22, 2006 • Provides ~20% of campus electricity • Lifetime 9.4GW of electricity generated • Has offset over 28M lbs. of greenhouse gases
  5. 5. Solar Energy • ABS Information Commons • 103 kW array • Roof designed for PV array • Operational June 2015 • Dormitory Complex • 78 kW array • Operational November 2008 • Flat panel system • Solar Pathway Lighting • 62 light system
  6. 6. Solar Thermal • 24 Evacuated solar tube collectors • Operational Sept 2015 • Located on natatorium roof • Designed to allow either pool or DHW to be heated • Drain-back system prevents overload of system • In the first two months the system saved over 600 Therms • Projected to save 2,500 Therm savings per year.
  7. 7. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) • Microturbines • 3 turbines; 65kW each • Provide heat and power to dorms • Heat recovery supplements hot water • High efficiency turbines powered by natural gas • Generate alternative energy credits
  8. 8. Geothermal Energy • Heating and cooling of new LEED Platinum building • Provides 120 ton of heating and cooling • Building uses natural gas for domestic hot water and radiant floor only • 48-well, vertical, closed loop system • Uses chilled beam technology
  9. 9. Hydrokinetic Energy • Research program to test hydrokinetic designs • Uses the Cape Cod Canal are “fuel” or power source • Constant flow of ~5 mph • Will generates electricity for buildings on and near the pier • Collaboration with public and private entities • Educational resource to several energy courses
  10. 10. Center for Responsible Energy • Campus resource to educate students and community about energy sources • Showcase renewable and alternative energy systems on campus • Real time displays of on-site generation • Document energy conservation • Provide resources for emerging technology systems • Highlight campus sustainability programs • Sustainability Concentrations • Landscaping • Purchasing • Cleaning systems • Recycling • Food waste diversion • Metals recovery • Construction materials • Textiles • Single-stream recycling • Water Conservation • Aquaculture programs
  11. 11. “As a wide variety of adverse environmental factors continue to affect quality of life and our ability to provide a quality education, we will need to embrace the goals of sustainability and accountability both as individuals and as an institution. We will encourage the efforts of student organizations that raise environmental awareness and initiate new techniques for achieving environmental sustainability. With a focus on these issues, we can make Massachusetts Maritime Academy known for the quality of our environmental stewardship, thereby attracting students committed to living in a resource conscious manner and cultivate a willingness to involve all campus members in the process of achieving greater campus sustainability.” MMA 5-YEAR STRATEGIC PLAN
