Strategies to improve efficiency of central heating and cooling plants applicable to single building as well as multiple buildings in a campus setting include optimization of central plant’s location, configuration, equipment, arrangement, operating parameters, primary utilities and piping distribution systems. Additionally, consideration given to critical commissioning (Cx) activity that focus on ensuring the proper operation is achieved either at time of turn over or through the life of the system. By focusing on large elements of your development like the central plant, the benefits of Cx can be huge! Cx can ensure that the central plant is capitalizing on all available economizer options, reset schedules and load following optimization which can translate up to 20% lower energy consumption or cost.
