Integrated operation saves 15% for chilled-water installations

Johnson Controls has developed an approach to managing centralised chilled-water installations as a single integrated system that can reduce energy consumption by up to 15%. Called Central Plant Optimisation (CPO), it combines innovative control technology and advanced algorithms that enable chiller plants to maximise their efficiency by determining the correct operating parameters in real time to meet the building’s cooling load with minimum power.

This solution can be used in existing buildings and new construction to minimise operating costs, reduce environmental impact and provide a compelling return on investment.

David Klee, director of channel marketing and strategy, HVAC, says, ‘CPO helps building owners and managers realise significant energy savings by reducing energy consumption in chilled-water plants by up to 15%. Even more importantly, the solutions include the right measurement, verification and management tools to sustain the savings over time.’
