Owners Technical Advisor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute

As the university’s public-private partnership (P3) technical advisor, Stanley Consultants played a pivotal role in advancing Worcester Polytechnic Institute's campus utility projects, which seek to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. Our engagement involved providing guidance to WPI relating to their goal of transitioning from traditional natural gas boilers to a sustainable mix of combined heat and power systems, geo-exchange systems and solar energy integration.

To-date, our renewable energy consultants have verified sustainable initiatives, reviewed agreements and advised on scope adjustments. As the project matures, we will also leverage our extensive experience with campus energy project to provide design review.

Green Energy Planning and Innovation at a University of North Carolina Campus

A confidential investment firm and banking syndication engaged Stanley Consultants for an independent engineering assessment of a campus carbon-free, greenfield District Energy System (DES). Our task was to scrutinize the technical and commercial facets of the DES, which encompassed a central plant, geo-exchange heating and cooling, rooftop solar and onsite wind turbines. This system will support a new Innovation District which includes a new research-driven academic multistory building, as well as a multi-building housing development for university faculty and staff.

Our comprehensive assessment covered technical designs, resource evaluations, project participant roles, contractual agreements and a review of the financial model underpinning the long-term utility agreement. Our renewable energy consultants' contributions aimed to ensure the DES effectively supplied cooling, heating and electricity to the innovation district, aligning with the university’s vision for sustainable and efficient energy solutions. Stanley Consultants is continuing to support the client with monthly reviews and assessments of payment applications throughout the construction and startup of the DES.
