Advanced AMR, working in partnership with the City of Medford MA, has announced the completion of phase one of its energy management programme for Medford High School. Medford, near Boston, is one of the oldest cities in America, and city officials have put much effort into upgrading municipal facilities to achieve higher standards for energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gases.

An important part of this strategy is addressing energy usage at its high school, and a series of wireless energy monitoring solutions has been installed throughout the school campus. Real-time usage data is monitored at 15-minute intervals and transmitted via the Internet to Advanced AMR’s energy management system, where it is collected, collated and analysed.

Phase two involves working with the appropriate utilities, community groups and school administrators to formulate strategies and policy changes for the future.
