Energy manager joins Northwest, focuses on energy-saving efforts

Northwest Missouri State University recently welcomed Dan Boyt as its energy manager. Boyt, who began the role Oct. 1, is responsible for identifying opportunities to conserve energy at the University and implementing energy-saving measures.

Boyt has worked in the energy field for six years and came to Northwest from Joplin-based Ozark Energy Services where he served as a project manager. He also served two years as an instructor at Crowder College in Neosho, where he taught alternative energy courses.

A native of southwest Missouri, Boyt earned his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Arkansas.

Boyt joins Northwest’s facility services team as part of a renewed effort by the University to operate more efficiently by establishing an energy policy and maintaining temperature controls among other goals.

Earlier this year, Northwest renewed its facility services management contract with Aramark Higher Education and continues its long-standing commitment to sustainability. The partnership among Northwest and Aramark includes the development and implementation of a program to improve energy efficiency and focus on energy consumption reduction strategies across the campus. The energy program is anticipated to yield annual utility savings of more than $300,000.
