John Petze, Principal of SkyFoundry, posted our case study on Friday. He wrote, “We are excited to publish a new Case Study provided by ETC Group & Climatec. The case study focuses on Banner Health’s Thunderbird Campus where SkySpark was used as a key part of a program to improve energy management results, maintain energy savings and reverse the trend of energy drift over time. The case study provides detailed overview of the financial results achieved with the program…ETC Group then partnered with Climatec to implement control system upgrades including: Utilizing scheduling or occupancy sensors to control ventilation levels according to space occupancy, Optimizing control algorithms in the central plant, Reprogramming air handlers to efficiently utilize economizers and optimally reset supply air temperatures and pressures. Once these energy efficiency upgrades were installed, Banner saw results in both operational improvements and immediate reduction in utility usage saving $449,000 per year.” Read the case study here.
