$124K Per Year Energy Savings; Data Uncovers Additional Savings Opportunities
Georgetown University in Washington, DC, one of the world’s leading academic and research institutions, recently implemented Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) with Aircuity, in a large research center. Within the first year, the energy savings provided by the DCV system was nearly $124,000.
What’s more, soon after completion, Georgetown’s analytics team used the DCV system data to identify 5 areas of opportunity that the university could address to reach their full savings potential:
• Fume hood behavior
• Rooms with high thermal loads
• Rooms with frequent DCV responses
• Incorrectly programmed fume hoods
• Increased fan power for more duct static in one room
Using the Aircuity 2.0 Platform, Georgetown University has delivered energy savings in an already cutting-edge building; gained quick and easy access to actionable information that is valued by multiple stakeholders; and created measurably better environments for all occupants.
