  • This top 10 came from Building Commissioning Association Northeast Chapter seminar of May 2007
  • Script: “ Buildings have complex mechanical systems and their performance, like a car’s, naturally degrades over time. Our SiteSMART services restore and maintain building performance at optimal levels. Our SiteSMART commissioning services are like taking your car to the mechanic – performance is optimized by a thorough, detailed examination and tuning of the individual systems. With SiteSMART MBCx, your building is continuously monitored and detailed recommendations are made to improve its performance. It’s like having a mechanic with a diagnostic computer in the car with you while you’re driving.”
  • How does an end-user sell what they do not use? Generators of electricity are mandated by FERC to ensure supply to end-users. So that generators are not flying totally blind in their mission to catch up with demand real time, they rely on an end-user’s usage from the previous year at any given moment (i.e noon on June 20). That becomes the end-user’s baseline for the current year. Any number of kWs below that baseline that an end-user can use on command is a nW.

    • 1. Top Energy Efficiency Products [6/15/2010] Green Office Conference [David McDougall] [Manager of Analytics]
    • 2. Building Are Full of Energy Savings Opportunities “ Less than 5% of commercial buildings in the US are actually commissioned after construction.” - BCS Partners “ Closing our ‘national electric productivity gap’ could curtail up to 30% of our power consumption.” - Rocky Mountain Institute “ The average commercial building uses 26% more energy than needed.” - DOE / Energy Star It’s no surprise that commercial buildings are not as efficient as they could be! There is still ample room to improve efficiency in this space.
    • 3. OK, But What Do I do? A Recipe For Success:
      • Have a team, such as a green team, in place to review options and ensure tasks are implemented.
      • There is no need to go it alone. Get help from utilities, engineers, peers, non-profits, and government resources.
      • Know where the tax breaks and rebates are.
      • Know where your building loads comes from. Conduct and internal audit and review. Use Portfolio Manager to benchmark.
      • Consider a professional audit.
      • Have a plan. Energy management should be as disciplined as financial management.
    • 4.
        • Occupancy sensors
        • Photovoltaics
        • Frictionless chillers
        • Retro-commissioning / commissioning
        • Demand response
        • Bonus product: Variable frequency drives
      Top Energy Savings Products and Services
      • These are some of products you may not be using that could save you money.
    • 5. Now that everyone has installed the most efficient lights, let’s control them.
      • Savings from EPA study: The average office spends 29% of it’s electrical bill on lighting

      • Cost: $30-$130 each, plus installation
      • Resources Utility rep, electrician, in-house facilities staff
      • Links http://www.ies.org/ ,
      • Retrofit Payback: 1-2 years, less with new construction
      • Extra credit: Add dimmer controls for daylight harvesting
      Essential information
    • 7.
      • Total incentives for commercial buildings can reach 50% of the first cost
      • Costs are dropping, increased panel and inverter supply, suppliers and capable contractors
      • SRECs are a new added incentive
      • ESCOs can often offer power for less than market rates. Beware of high escalator clauses.
      • Paybacks can be as low as 3 years
      Photovoltaics (PV): It’s time to consider solar as an investment
      • Solar highlights for Massachusetts
    • 8.
      • Net cost: $1-3 per installed kWh for commercial applications
      • Renewable energy tax credit $.03 / kWh, and SREC $3.25 /watt
      • Rebates and credits change often, get current and be prepared for new programs

      • Interview Professionals
    • 9. When you need to Replace Water Cooled Chillers, go Turbocore
      • Frictionless chillers are super efficient
      • Key Contacts: Mechanical Contractor, Utility Representative
    • 10. RCx Retro-Commissioning A systematic, documented process that identifies low-cost operational and maintenance improvements in existing buildings and brings the buildings up to the design intentions of its current usage. Why?: Because buildings rarely operate as designed.
    • 11. “ Top 10” RCx Opp – for Energy Savings (from Building Commissioning Association)
      • 10. Improve boiler efficiency/control
      • 9. Reset Supply Air Static Pressure set-point
      • 8. Terminal Unit tune-ups - dampers & valves
      • 7. Return VFDs to variable speed operation
      • 6. Lower condenser water temps/improve chiller sequence
      • 5. Calibrate sensors and instrumentation
      • 4. System level test & Balance (over air, over pumping)
      • 3. Optimize/restore economizer operations
      • 2. Eliminate simultaneous heating and cooling
      • 1. Turn off equipment when not needed
    • 12. MBCx Continuous Monitoring and Commissioning
      • Building performance naturally degrades over time. SiteSMART uses building data and powerful algorithms to identify savings opportunities.

    • 13. Example: Air Handling Schedules Change in Schedule Annual savings = $21,000 CO 2 avoidance = 102 tonnes Savings Category No cost   Action Recommended Enable auto-control. This unit was habitually overridden, but from continuous monitoring, each incidence was caught with minimal loss in energy savings. As a result of this measure new protocols were established for requesting off-hours usage to further limit this issue from re-occurring. Facility managers often don’t have the time to identify maintenance issues like equipment operating during off-hours. Increased costs are an undetected result. The AHU schedule ( green ) shows a regular daily schedule. SiteSMART found that actual operation (blue) was in constant over-ride.
    • 14. Demand Response Overview Demand response is a cost-effective and reliable way to meet peak demand. The alternative is to build generation and transmission capacity that will be used for only a fraction of a year. 0% 25% 50% 75% 100% Winter Spring Summer Fall % of System Peak Demand 90% >10% of infrastructure costs are spent to meet peak demand that occurs less than 1% of the time Annual US Electricity Demand - % of Peak
    • 15. Demand Response Overview Demand response is achieved when end-users reduce their demand for electricity from the grid in response to market signals. kWh’s 24 Hours $/kWh 24 Hours Reliability/Security – DR can be brought to market more quickly and precisely than comparable generation or T&D, giving grid operators resources needed to better manage reliability NOW while paying end-users to tap into existing resources . Price – DR can dramatically reduce pricing power of well-positioned generators and incentivizes end users to become active participants in energy markets – active participation keeps markets healthy and prices low . Efficiency – Demand response raises the specter of efficiency. Increased end user market participation puts energy back on the business planner’s map and, when properly deployed, can save end-users 20% or more on energy bills.

    • 16. Demand Response Overview = Grid operators must meet the demand of a control area’s aggregated load while meeting FERC’s reliability standard of downtime of no more than one day in ten years ! ERCOT Now Pays Load to Respond!!! 1 2 If Load Increases . . .

    • 17. Variable Frequency Drives (VFD)
      • Speed control for motors (pumps, fans, compressors)
      • Can save 75% on some devices
      • What devices come on fully that could be controlled? (Ie. RTU or pumps
      • Must have “inverter ready” motors
      • Rebates are usually available.
