The BACnet Advanced Application Controllers (B-AAC) BTL Listed ECB-300 is a microprocessor-based programmable controller designed to control various building automation applications such as small to medium AHUs, chillers, boilers, and cooling towers.
Here’s a task: bridge the new mechanical room to the utility connection in the old space - located in an adjacent building in Chicago’s South Loop. Room for equipment is frequently tight, but in the case of this steam pipe, the room for error was less than one inch. The kind of planning that navigated that challenge accounted for (almost) everything in this tricky retrofit.
The first university cogen plant in the U.S. to
Platinum certification, the OSU Energy Center succeeded via consistently
efficiency-minded design and an exceptional level of analysis and teamwork in
the commissioning process. Fuel flexibility, staff training, and a projected
$650,000 annual savings didn’t hurt, either.
Tankless water heaters saved California State University Northridge money in energy costs. Beverly Watson can easily laugh about the idea today, now that her recent tankless water heater retrofit project
