Energy Audit at an Upstate NY Biotech
July 17, 2007

The annual energy cost ($0.05 per kW) per mouse varies significantly between three diffrent caging systems: Open= $1.00, IVC=$1.66, and EVC=$0.82.

The Open and IVC systems have significant heat radiation to room and heat transfer to mass while the EVC system has no heat load that either radiate to the room or transfer to the mass of the rack.

Dr. Rivard presents at the 2008 TRADELINE conference on New Technology for Greater Ventilation, Less Energy Use, and Lower Operating Costs. He concludes the forum:

“The only way to solve the energy challenge is through technologies and innovations.”

In the rodent housing industry, the right order of things to do to reduce energy use is: first, reduce the demand for plug-ins and air changes; second, recover conditioned exhaust air energy with heat recovery system; and finally, use renewable strategies.
