Product: Chiller System, EV Charging, and Solar PV Energy Management Tracking
Total Savings: IN PROGRESS – Surprised of high evening demand in facilities / receiving peak demand alerts
The client is a governmental organization responsible for promoting clean air within its four- county area, which is known for having some of the highest levels of smog in the nation. It is mandated by federal and state laws to achieve clean air standards to protect public health. As part of its decision-making process, the client considers input from the public through workshops and public hearings.
The client chose Agave® Systems as a solution to monitor and measure the impact of their energy-related initiatives. Agave® provides real-time monitoring of equipment and energy costs, enabling optimization of operations and maximizing savings. It offers detailed data on energy usage, allowing the client to review current and past performance to gain a better understanding of their facilities’ energy profiles.
The implementation of Agave® Systems led to several positive outcomes:
- New Process for Characterizing Building Performance: The client established a new process to assess the performance of their buildings, likely using data and insights provided by Agave® Systems.
- Reduced Operational Costs: Continual monitoring of performance and auditing of Southern California Edison (SCE) bills enabled the client to identify areas for cost reduction and optimize energy consumption, resulting in reduced operational costs.
- Drive Roadmap for Additional Distributed Generation Projects: The findings and insights obtained from Agave® Systems helped the client develop a roadmap for future distributed generation projects, potentially involving renewable energy sources and other energy management initiatives.
By implementing Agave® Systems, the client was able to improve its energy management practices, optimize operations, and reduce operational costs. The real-time monitoring and data analytics capabilities provided by Agave® Systems allowed the client to gain valuable insights into their energy usage and make informed decisions for further improvement. This case study demonstrates the effectiveness of using advanced energy management solutions in a government organization like the client to promote clean air and enhance operational efficiency.
