Our Team

Utilities & Energy Services (UES) is a department under UCF’s Facilities & Safety division. Our staff, comprised of professional engineers, technical experts, and skilled specialists, are tasked with advancing the University's strategic goal of carbon neutrality. The department develops and implements policies, plans, and programs, and oversees operation practices to reduce energy consumption.

We partner with our associates at the University, local community, and utility providers to leverage faculty and staff expertise, student projects, institutional research, and other resources to promote education, drive innovation, and support our commitment to environmental stewardship.

This division was streamlined in 2018 to aggressively reduce energy use and cost. The associate director of utility operations is responsible for campus commodity procurement, production, and distribution. The associate director of energy services is responsible for facility energy management and verification, green building strategies and standards, consulting and commissioning services, and Green Revolving Energy Fund metrics reporting. This new organizational structure will allow UES leadership address the needs of the UCF community by separating building level operations and focusing on enterprise energy management as a whole.

UES is also responsible for providing and supporting a wide variety of mission-critical services at the University. UES provides both utilities and energy management services for 177 buildings, comprising of 7.8 million GSF of conditioned (both cooled and heated) space, across UCF’s 1,400 acre main campus.

As our campus expands and utility demands increase, energy conservation and sustainable building practices are imperative. Buildings are the primary source of UCF’s CO2 emissions. The University has been growing, including the construction of the north-end expansion comprising of student housing, athletics, and retail. Since 2005, as a result of improvements in energy efficiency and execution of various sustainability initiatives, the University has reduced energy consumption by 27.1 percent, despite campus growth of 3.7 million GSF. Under the currently adopted 2015 Master Plan (Current Campus Master Plan 2015-2025), we will continue to implement the most efficient and sustainable practices while the University is anticipating an additional 480,000 GSF of construction over the next ten years.
