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 over 7.8 million GSF of conditioned (both cooled and heated) space, across the 2,600 acre UCF main campus and adjacent Research Park.
