Overview

Commercial buildings in the U.S. spend over $180 billion annually on energy and consume 47 billion gallons of water every day. HVAC systems typically account for half of overall energy consumption. By optimizing energy consumption in HVAC systems, Optimum Energy delivers electricity savings of up to 50%.

The 3 Laws of True Optimization®

Law 1
You cannot optimize what you cannot measure.
Without an accurate measure of energy use by each piece of equipment in the system, it is impossible to accurately predict the impact of varying conditions on the system.
Law 2
Optimize systems, not just individual components.
If an optimization plan focuses only on installing the most efficient pieces of equipment—without regard to how to maximize performance of the whole system—it will fail to capture the total available system efficiency. Holistic automatic optimization of HVAC systems typically increases energy efficiency by an additional 10%-25% over new equipment alone.
Law 3
Optimization must be automatic, dynamic, and continuous for maximum efficiency.
Optimization should be a real-time dynamic process, not a static process. If a plant’s operational control is not based on real-time inputs, it cannot be fully optimized.
