Since 2015, District Energy St. Paul has focused on optimizing cooling operations to save energy and costs for the system and customers. In the first year alone, customers saw a 10% savings and this trend continued through improvement of data/performance reporting, controls strategies, improved management of thermal storage, a more efficient dispatch strategy, and reduction in demand peaks. This presentation will review the strategies used, lessons learned, and plans for the next phase of improvements.
