Annual energy savings of universities amount up to EUR 3.5 million
23.3.2018 – Long-term cooperation between universities and Granlund has enabled great results in facilities management. This translates to annual energy savings totalling 6%, i.e. EUR 3.5 million in the last five years.
The Computerised Maintenance Management System Granlund Manager is used at all of Finland’s fourteen government-funded universities. Cooperation between the real estate maintenance companies of Finnish universities and Granlund began as early as in the 1990s.
“University of Helsinki has been using Granlund Manager for many years. It is an essential part of managing energy data, planning for the long term and controlling the quality of the management of the university’s property portfolio. Granlund Manager enables us to show the effects of energy saving measures and, at the same time, develop the efficiency and productivity of our facilities management process,” says Jaana Ihalainen, Property Manager at University of Helsinki.
University Properties of Finland Ltd provides maintenance services to universities outside the Helsinki metropolitan area. When deciding on a new system, the company selected Granlund Manager because it met the company’s need to optimise its energy consumption and create functional systems for building technical services and indoor conditions on its premises.
The company concluded an energy efficiency agreement with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment. The target as set out in the agreement was to achieve savings of up to 6% in energy costs in the period 2011–2016. This target was achieved well before the end of 2016 through planning for the long term and budgeting. Special attention was paid to the development of preventive maintenance, reactive maintenance process, energy efficiency and visibility.
“We believe in Granlund’s ability to optimise energy consumption and provide good indoor conditions in all our buildings, regardless of their purpose of use,” says Jarmo Perkiö, Maintenance Manager at University Properties of Finland Ltd.
