Pharmaceuticals & Labs

Reduce HVAC system energy consumption while maintaining the controlled ambient conditions that are crucial to product quality. With extensive experience in the pharmaceutical industry, Optimum understands the critical role that HVAC systems play in research and production, and has a successful track record of balancing energy needs with air quality requirements.

What We Do

HVAC systems account for as much as 65% of the total energy use in the laboratories, data centers and production clean rooms that power the pharmaceutical, life sciences and medical devices industries. While consumer safety and regulatory compliance will always take precedence, manufacturers are increasingly committing to sustainable practices throughout the product lifecycle. Optimum Energy is here to help.

Energy Savings Up to 50%

How Labs Benefit

Achieve constant peak performance and real-time fault correction

The OptiCx® platform dynamically and automatically adapts to fluctuating conditions to yield the lowest possible kW/ton, ensuring building systems achieve peak performance day after day, year after year. The patented Real-Time Dynamic Commissioning™ technology fights performance drift by detecting and addressing issues in real time. Sophisticated software algorithms and modeling techniques also produce a detailed, real-world baseline, which, combined with the OptiCx® Measurement and Verification tool, gives you performance data and energy savings results in real time. This allows you to quickly retool and reset when necessary.

Reduce energy costs, water usage, and equipment wear

Optimum Energy’s solutions typically reduce energy expenditures by up to 40%, helping you achieve HVAC optimization and giving you an average payback between one and five years. OptimumLOOP® also dramatically reduces water use, further contributing to sustainability goals. Additionally, Optimum Energy helps reduce HVAC equipment maintenance costs and wear and tear by balancing energy use among all components.

Achieve sustainability goals

OptiCx® advances sustainability goals and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 50% from baseline. Reduce emissions at the source as a result of running more efficiently, aligning your organization with the carbon laws and compliance set to arrive by 2030. It also contributes to Energy Star ratings (up to 18 points) and LEED certification for both existing buildings (up to 24 Energy and Atmosphere credits) and new construction (up to 19 EA credits).

Scale within a building and across campus

Optimum’s scalable, modular approach to energy optimization standardizes and deploys HVAC management best practices across an enterprise portfolio, regardless of building type, equipment, or BAS vendor. You can address one system at a time, within one building or across many facilities. Our centralized energy management system makes it easy to access the information you need.
