Pulse Energy tracks energy consumption at 2010 Games

Posted by Rob Lewis

BC Hydro and Pulse Energy announced yesterday that they have launched an online Venue Energy Tracker to monitor energy consumption for 2010 Winter Olympic Games sites within the cities of Vancouver and Richmond, the Resort Municipality of Whistler and Whistler Blackcomb. 

The online Venue Energy Tracker marks the first time Olympic venues have collected and publicly reported on energy consumption during Games time. Each participating site will have a dashboard monitoring real-time energy consumption. The dashboard will help venue managers to make smarter choices about how and when to use electricity.

Olympic venues participating in the project include the Richmond Olympic Oval, General Motors Place, Vancouver Olympic/Paralympic Centre, South East False Creek Community Centre, Whistler Blackcomb Roundhouse Lodge and Snowmaking Facilities and the Athletes Villages in Vancouver and Whistler.

Look for a live dashboard in real-time of the sites’ energy consumption at various Live Sites in February and at BC Hydro’s Power Smart Village or check out www.VenueEnergyTracker.com.

Let's hope we don't see some serious spikes in energy consumption for the snowmaking facilities at Cypress Mountain.
