One of the highlights of MSCE 2016 for our Oracle eAM customers and for many others who attended was the site tour that was hosted by Stanford University. Nearly 50 customers and partners were able to visit Stanford's Energy Systems Innovation (SESI), which represents a transformation of university energy supply from a 100% fossil-based combined heat and power plant to grid-sourced electricity and a more efficient electric heat recovery system. This new system, along with Stanford's solar power procurement, is anticipated to reduce campus emissions approximately 68% from current levels and save 15% of the campus' potable water.
In addition, the tour group was allowed to see how Stanford uses Oracle in its Grainger@Stanford University facility, which manages over 9,000 SKUs and provides parts and supplies across the university campus for facility maintenance and the extensive construction projects taking place at Stanford.
