Exergenics’ Chilled Water Plant Optimisation Tool is a patented Machine Learning software platform that simulates plant performance under every possible condition, to produce optimised controls recommendations which can be easily programmed into the existing BMS to achieve peak plant efficiency. Leveraging operational data, the software models the actual efficiency profiles of chillers, pumps and cooling towers. This approach delivers significant benefits over using OEM performance data, which becomes less reliable as equipment performance degrades as it ages.Through a cloud-based approach, building owners can realise significant energy savings within industry-leading payback periods, without any new hardware, technicians, or workflow disruptions.
Iain Stewart (Exergenics’ Co-Founder & CEO) began investigating commercial building air-conditioning energy efficiency in 2016 after identifying a significant efficiency gap in the operation of chilled water plant systems that led to an excess amount of energy consumption and carbon emissions.This investigation culminated in the development of Exergenics’ novel optimisation methodology for the chilled water plants, and subsequently, establishment in 2019.
Today, Exergenics is a diverse team of Engineers, Developers, and Data Scientists who share a passion for protecting the environment through the development of cutting edge technologies that enable building owners and operators to save energy, reduce carbon emissions, and enhance building sustainability and performance.
Limbach Holdings provides mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and control (MEP+C) contracting services to building owners throughout the United States. The Limbach team struggled with consistently gathering the data and insights they needed from different building equipment in a standardized fashion to provide efficient and data-driven services to those buildings.
Building owners have many opportunities to decarbonize their own buildings to meet their carbon targets, but sometimes their money can be better spent decarbonizing other people’s buildings. That’s WattCarbon’s thesis, and one we believe in too. So much so that we (along with dozens of you) invested in their seed round last year.
The software operating commercial buildings hasn't changed much since before I was born. The first Building Automation Systems came about in the 1980s, with the ability to schedule equipment operation, create setpoints, and program sequences of operations. They could also store data (“trends”), display that data on a graphic, and alert operators to alarming readings (“alarms”).
Episode 159 features Thano Lambrinos from Quadreal and Wayne Kim from Andorix. This conversation explores the partnership between Quadreal and Andorix and how the implementation of a new network has made an impact on Quadreal. Enjoy!
