Understanding Baseline and Steps to Optimization

Gather & Analyze

By gathering and analyzing operational information and understanding a plant’s configuration, our team of industry-leading engineers can then apply sophisticated modeling techniques and software algorithms, producing a real-world baseline for your plant and an accurate and quantifiable energy efficiency model for the most cost-effective and efficient operations possible.

The 8760 Report

The 8760 report is an annualized hour-by-hour model of building load, weather data, and equipment performance for every hour (8760 in total) a year.

Two separate 8760 reports are created: the first accurately models current performance, and the second report provides an optimized view of your HVAC systems, based on completion of necessary plant remediation and implementation of the Optimum Energy solution. The difference between the two reports details the financial basis for implementing an optimization project.

Optimization Implementation

After an ESA is complete, your organization can move forward with optimization implementation for your HVAC system. Optimum Energy installs its patented, state-of-the-art OptiCx® platform, and any changes outlined to the system in the ESA are made.

This process is made even easier with our Turn-key, Optimization As a Service (OaaS) option, complete with outsourced project management and lifetime* support services.

“If we turn the system off, we can watch energy usage increase. Then we turn it back on and we can make it go back down again. We can see the immediate, quantifiable impact. The savings are verifiable—we know that our money is being quickly recovered and that the investment is helping patients.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is HVAC consulting?

HVAC consulting is specialized guidance into heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. This guidance may be related to the design, installation or optimization of an HVAC system, in residential, commercial, or industrial buildings or structures.

At Optimum Energy, we deal with large-scale, commercial systems across the globe.

Can I hire an HVAC consultant from Optimum Energy?

Optimum Energy performs detailed site-analysis related to system design and optimization for commercial HVAC systems. Optimum Energy does not provide ad-hoc HVAC consulting or residential services.

How is an ESA different from traditional HVAC consulting?

An ESA is a very specific process that uses clearly defined steps that identify project roles, deliverables, and milestones. Each ESA is managed by a dedicated team of energy engineers. This analysis provides an in-depth view of a customer’s current plant operations and provides a clear understanding of the scope of work needed to implement our optimization platform, as well as the estimated total cost of the implementation, expected energy savings, and cost savings. Typically, the ESA process takes three to six weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the HVAC system.

Traditional HVAC consulting is a broad term that can be used for any activities related to the HVAC system.
