Project Highlight
University of California-Irvine "Best in Class" Smart Lab Program
To reach their sustainability goals the University of California, Irvine created the nation-wide “best in class” Smart Labs program which has allowed them to significantly reduce energy use in both new labs and existing labs on campus. The approach consists of a variety of energy efficiency measures. Aircuity is one of the key components of their program and is helping to drive the energy savings.  UCI has surpassed the system-wide goal of a 20% energy reduction and are well on their way to reaching their goal of a 50% energy reduction.  Aircuity can assist other universities in meeting (and exceeding) their goals as well!

A New Look at Airside Economizers

Economizing approaches are limited in their performance if the systems are based on discrete sensors. In addition to sensor accuracy and reliability, some of the more significant issues affecting economizer performance relate to simple mechanical problems. Aircuity is developing a unique solution to the issues surrounding traditional methods of providing an economizer lockout function. Aircuity's centralized sensing system, continuously monitors the outside air, return air and supply air performing cooling load calculations based on actual sensed dewpoint and drybuld temperature values.

A Holistic Overview of Technologies & Strategies to Achieve Deep Energy Reductions in Laboratories

 

It is impossible to ignore the vasts amount of energy laboratories consume. As we investigate energy efficiency measures and strive to build more and more energy efficient laboratories whether to achieve net zero buildings, campuses, or only to significantly reduce energy expenses, the most impactful approach for many laboratories is to significantly reduce the volume of airflow moving through the building.
 
How can this be done safely? 
In the last few years there have been new design approaches that have been used to reduce lab airflows and reduce energy consumption including demand based control of air changes and hydronic cooling approaches such as chilled beams. Although these and other concepts have been discussed individually, what has been lacking is a unified or holistic discussion of how these and other technologies can be combined to create a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts. Making your lab VAV is the most important first step, followed by implementing Aircuity demand based control, then consider low pressure drop designs and exhaust fan controls, followed by an examination of chilled beam deployment and heat recovery systems. Implementing energy conservation measures in this order will ensure that you get the maximum reduction for the money.
