Tech Innovations Bring Cornell Closer to Its Zero Carbon Goals

To optimize the performance of Cornell University's lake cooling system — along with its sophisticated steam and power generation plant, and water filtration processes — the campus operations team relies heavily on Proficy software from the GE Intelligent Platforms group. The recent addition of mobile information access from iPads has cut down on maintenance costs.

"It speeds up our reaction time and is a more efficient use of our resources," said Bill Richards, senior network engineer for the Cornell Utilities Department.
