Chiller Economisation and Integrated Building Management Systems
Chillers are one of the largest energy guzzlers in any industrial setup. Typical chiller systems, including pumps, run at a specific consumption of 1.3-1.4 kW/TR. Depending on the ambient temperatures, it is possible to reduce this to 0.7-0.8 kW/TR.
Primary reasons for inefficient chiller operations are lack of synchronization between demand and supply, uneven temperature requirements across spaces, manual control systems and unintegrated operations. Automating operations, using artificial intelligence, and optimization of system design can lead to a 10-12% reduction in energy consumption.
Energyhive’s partners have a proven track record of designing and implementing integrated cooling systems that help cut down the specific energy consumption of chiller systems.
