The Assignment

Calyx facilities harbour energy-saving and carbon-reducing initiatives in order to keep their carbon footprint enviably low. As part of their continued journey, Richard Cotterill (Calyx Senior FM), researched new and innovative technologies that would support Calyx’s global sustainability targets and chose to integrate Ecopilot at their Nottingham facility, an already energy-efficient building.

Solution

The 1 st quarter included a period when unusually hot weather should have resulted in increased cooling costs, however, the site benefitted from an electricity saving of 30 MWh’s MWh’s, as well as having a significant impact on base load gas consumption. The 2nd,3rd and 4th quarters continued to exceed the guaranteed minimum savings for both gas and electricity consumption.

Results

The introduction of Ecopilot has also seen a significant reduction of climate complaints from occupants. All has been achieved through Ecopilot automatically, pro-actively and dynamically optimising the HVAC in real-time, in accordance with the needs of the building and its users, whilst assisting the Calyx facilities team and their designated M&E and BMS contractors to improve the HVAC operation on site.
