Sabien’s M2G optimiser gains US Department of Energy validation
Following field trials, the US Department of Energy (DoE) has confirmed that Sabien’s M2G boiler-load optimisers deliver significant energy savings when retrofitted to hot-water boilers — up to 14% in these trials.
The M2G units, distributed in the USA by Greffen Systems, were used in the DoE’s ‘Building America’ case study, which installed and monitored ‘advanced-load-monitoring after-market controllers in Chicago. All the boiler systems were fitted with weather-compensation controls. The M2G units were shown to operate in harmony with these controls to increase the energy savings already being achieved through weather compensation.
Frank Salensky, CEO of Greffen System, says, ‘The Department of Energy’s validation means government affirmation of a key tool for saving money. For those chief sustainability officers and energy managers of industrial and commercial buildings who are seeking the next tier of proven solutions, the M2G is an exciting tool.’
