OptikW - HVAC Optimization


Our GREENandSAVE Staff is always on the lookout for cost-effective energy savings to help business in Washington become more sustainable. The Energy Intelligence Center has developed some excellent Chiller Plant Energy Savings ranging from 15% to 40% via their OptikW algorithmic software platform. The software solutions do not require new equipment and the compensation for the services is paved on the savings generated. This is a win/win for businesses and the environment.

Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Optimization are core strengths of the Energy Intelligence Center. As sensor and control technology continues to improve, their team has demonstrated proven results using their advanced logic that leverages ambient conditions like temperature, humidity, and dew point to optimize HVAC systems.

For an example of other sustainability solutions in Washington, see: 

Congress and the Supreme Court are saving an estimated $3.5 million a year in heating and cooling costs. The National Institutes of Health report its 300-acre Bethesda campus, which includes a 240-bed research hospital, clinical research laboratories and a data center, are saving approximately $12 million a year and cutting carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions equivalent to that produced by 10,000 vehicles. The common denominator is combined heat and power (CHP), also known as cogeneration. 

CHP is an energy-efficient technology used in more than 4,400 facilities across the country, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. CHP technology uses natural gas to simultaneously generate electric and thermal energy on-site. The thermal is captured and utilized to provide space heating, domestic hot water and central air conditioning. For property developers and building owners, this means increased energy efficiencies and power reliability, should there be interruptions to the grid, while achieving lower overall operating costs.
