ITC Steam Temperature Control System
patent pending Steam Temperature Control System regulates the steam
temperature from your boiler or utility supplied steam based on outside
air temperature, related vacuum pressure and inside area temperatures.
this technology we can create steam at 160 degrees instead of the
normal 212 degrees. Creating steam at a lower temperature uses less
energy, resulting in lower utility costs. With the addition of
individual steam riser valves and area temperature sensors, we are able
to control the individual steam risers by opening a control valve only
when there is demand for heat from the temperature sensors associated
with that steam riser. This differs from limited or no control systems
which supply steam to the entire building, all at once.
Steam Control System works with the BMS to improve energy efficiency.
If an occupied space has an open window or space heater reporting an
excessive low or high temperature on the riser, that space’s
temperature sensor can be temporarily overridden using the BMS,
preventing unnecessary demand. In addition, different temperature set
points can be scheduled for each area throughout the day to compensate
for solar load, area occupancy or night time set back. Using the BMS,
you can create any number of temperature set points and time schedules
Green-Buildings’ team of accredited green building professionals
performed a benchmark analysis of the ITC Steam Temperature Control
System against Green-Buildings’ proprietary Green Building Accepted
Environment Principles Process™ and determined that the ITC Steam
Temperature Control System will:
A. Conserve Energy and Electricity
B. Reduce Greenhouse Gas (GhG) Emissions
C. Increase Occupant Comfort and Satisfaction
Energy Audit Report
existing buildings do not consume energy as efficiently as they could.
An Energy Audit is the most cost effective way to define exactly how
your energy is being used, where it is used effectively or wasted, and
the full range of energy saving opportunities available to you.
licensed PE/LEED AP will come to your building to perform an analysis
of all aspects of the building’s energy consumption. We then provide a
detailed written report of our findings along with the savings that
could be realized from upgrades to your heating, cooling and lighting
systems. Most often, over time, the money saved by upgrading pays not
only for the Energy Audit, but for the system upgrades themselves.
Johnson Controls Facility Explorer Building Management System
Facility Explorer Building Management System (BMS) provides web browser
accessibility anywhere on the building’s IT network and on any
authorized computer that has Internet access. Now you can view and act
on vital information locally or anywhere you have access to the
Internet. This means you can resolve problems faster, maintain comfort
levels and minimize deviations from energy saving strategies, improve
energy efficiency and reduce operating costs with a system that can be
expanded to include building access control, video surveillance and
Trending Capability allows
you to collect, store, and display pertinent system data for analysis,
including control performance indication, energy consumption, and
system troubleshooting. You can configure the BMS to create a history
for any data point in its system database.
allows sensors and data points to be overridden if they are
contributing erroneous data to the BMS. An example would be an open
window in an unoccupied space calling for heat from the system.
- The BMS can be configured to automate various functions within the
facility based on a time schedule. These functions would include
determining expected occupancy periods, starting or stopping HVAC
equipment, and turning lights on and off.
- The Alarming feature enables the BMS to initiate, route, and manage
alarms and events according to user-defined criteria. Each alarm record
logs the alarm and return-to-normal time and date, time duration in
current state, text description, and alarm class.
Energy Performance Contracting
Performance Contracting (EPC) is a turnkey service which provides
customers with a comprehensive set of energy efficiency, renewable
energy and distributed generation measures. It is often accompanied by
guarantees that the savings produced by a project will be sufficient to
finance the full cost of the project.
In an EPC, we can provide a full range of services required to complete your project, including:
- Energy audit
- Design engineering
- Construction management
- Operation and maintenance
- Savings monitoring and verification
every EPC project includes all of these services; the choice of the
exact mix of services in a project is made by you. We tailor a
comprehensive set of measures to fit your needs, including any of the
- Heating, air conditioning and ventilation
- Control systems
- Building envelope improvements (insulation, roofs, windows, etc.)
- Cogeneration and combined heat and power systems
- Demand Response Systems
- Renewables and biomass
- Water and sewer metering and use reduction
- Sustainable materials and operations
are constantly adding new measures to our projects in response to
customer requests. Please call to find out how EPC can benefit the
environment as well as your bottom line.
Demand Response Program
Response technology manages electrical use in buildings automatically,
over the Internet, whenever high prices, blackouts, or overloaded
electrical demand threaten the power grid. If a power plant or
transmission line goes down, signals can quickly reduce power demand as
well as the likelihood of a full-scale outage.
Demand Response program can help your company earn economic incentives
by reducing electricity load at times when the grid is under stress.
When demand starts to increase on the hottest or coldest days of the
year, a signal is sent from the Energy Service Provider to your BMS,
requesting a reduction in demand for a limited period of time in
exchange for payment. These programs offer differing terms and
payments, and are open to all types of customers.
