NOVEDA TECHNOLOGIES AND ARAMARK TEAM UP TO INCREASE ENERGY AWARENESS ON HIGHER EDUCATION CAMPUSES

Companies develop and implement solutions that drive sustainable change Noveda Technologies, the leader in web-based, real-time energy monitoring systems, and ARAMARK, a world leader in providing professional facilities management services, announce a strategic partnership to develop solutions for real-time energy monitoring in select Higher Education facilities managed by ARAMARK across North America. The goal of the partnership is to deliver programs that drive behavioral change to reduce waste and consumption of resources, such as electricity and water.


“We are honored and very excited to partner with ARAMARK as they seek innovative solutions to drive energy and water conservation by utilizing real-time resource monitoring and community participation,” said Govi Rao, president and CEO of Noveda Technologies.

“ARAMARK’s longstanding presence in facilities management provides them with a thorough understanding of energy consumption, and we look forward to collaborating with them to help reach their customers’ conservation and sustainability goals." As part of the partnership, Noveda will provide ARAMARK’s clients with data acquisition hardware and software solutions, along with an operations portal that will allow facility managers to view and monitor energy usage at multiple campus building locations from one system. In addition to enabling energy monitoring, Noveda will provide interactive and educational real-time dashboards and kiosk displays for energy and water use monitoring, as well as to encourage campus energy saving competitions on the campuses ARAMARK serves.

A recent ARAMARK survey of higher education students found that campuses must focus on education and awareness programs in order to achieve sustainable change. ARAMARK has successfully piloted several campus competitions that engaged students in reducing waste and consumption of resources.

"ARAMARK is committed to bringing innovative solutions to our partner clients that help them conserve resources and meet their sustainability goals,” said Ron Mesaros, Vice President of Facility Services for ARAMARK Higher Education. "This strategic alliance with Noveda will enable our facility managers to monitor and track energy consumption on our partner campuses in real time, as well as engage and educate the entire campus community in environmental stewardship.”
