Aircuity Celebrates National Energy Awareness Month

Recognizing building operators who reduce energy impact through improved ventilation. Building operators of labs, K-12 schools, universities and commercial offices have reduced their energy impact through improved ventilation. Improved ventilation has resulted in both significantly reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint, saving a total of 76 Billion MBtus to date.

Recognizing building operators who reduce energy impact through improved ventilation

NEWTON, Mass., USA - Aircuity (www.aircuity.com), the indoor air quality company, today celebrated National Energy Awareness Month by recognizing the work done by Aircuity's cutting-edge clients to reduce their energy impact in the laboratory, K-12 school, university and commercial office industries. By optimizing ventilation with Aircuity, these facilities are significantly reducing both their energy consumption and their carbon footprint, and have saved 76 Billion MBtus to date.

Aircuity reliably reduces energy use by 40-60% in labs and by 15-30% in other variable population buildings such as: office buildings, classrooms, libraries, casinos and arenas. According to the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories, labs typically have 5 to 10 times the energy and carbon usage of a comparatively sized office building. In many cases, Aircuity is the highest energy conservation measure.

"We are excited to have helped clients reduce their CO2 emissions by 11 billion pounds, saving over 70 million MBtus," said Dan Diehl, CEO at Aircuity. "National Energy Awareness Month is a perfect time to recognize our clients who are committed to reducing their energy consumption and making a significant impact on the environment. As the world thinks about utilizing more ventilation for healthy environments, it's absolutely critical that we do this intelligently and in the most sustainable way. The global need for sustainable and efficient buildings is not going away and in many cases is more important than ever."

Aircuity's centralized demand control ventilation platform (DCV) provides a reliable system for the life of the building, while also providing a comprehensive dashboard and analytic interface. This allows users to track energy usage, air change rates, fume hood sash management, total volatile organic compound (TVOC) and particle events, and other parameters.

The sizable energy savings provided by Aircuity enables a typical payback period of 5-7 years in office buildings and can be less than 2 years on labs. What's more, building managers can almost immediately use the DCV system data to identify areas of opportunity for greater savings potential, including the following:

• Fume hood behavior;
• Rooms with high thermal loads;
• Rooms with frequent DCV responses;
• Incorrectly programmed fume hoods

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
