HVAC represents over 30% of the total building energy consumption in commercial office buildings and 50 – 70% in a lab! With the majority of commercial buildings being over ventilated, optimizing the amount of air flow in a lab or commercial building represents a huge energy savings opportunity.
Aircuity recently teamed with Con Edison’s green team to present a webinar for the utility’s NYC area higher education and healthcare customers on the opportunities for energy reduction through an airside efficiency program. Airside optimization strategies were discussed, and client success stories were presented, including the University of Pennsylvania, University of California – Irvine, Arizona State University, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and a large lab in NYC. ConEdison presented information on their utility incentive program, which can provide up to 50% of the total project cost for some airside efficiency projects!
