SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In recognition of Earth Day, Optimum Energy today celebrates its commitment to helping customers reduce their overall carbon and water footprint by providing significant efficiency improvements in buildings. Since 2005, Optimum Energy has helped customers achieve sustainability targets by reducing energy use in HVAC systems, which are the largest consumer of energy in buildings.
“Water and energy conservation has never been more important to our customers than it is now,” said Bert Valdman, Optimum Energy’s President and CEO. “With the ongoing drought in California, Optimum Energy is committed to working with our customers to conserve precious water resources, in addition to the significant energy and cost savings we help them achieve.”
The OptiCx Platform from Optimum Energy uses a proprietary method of interdependently and relationally optimizing each HVAC sub-system as a coordinated whole, significantly reducing energy use. In addition, the technology effectively minimizes water evaporation by reducing cooling loads in chilled water and air-handling systems.
To date, Optimum Energy has helped customers achieve significant energy and water savings, including:
- Over 357,000,000 kWh saved, equivalent to electricity use (kWh) of over 33,800 homes in one year
- Over 471,200,000 pounds of CO2 emissions reduced (equal to CO2 emissions from over 2,830 tanker trucks worth of gasoline)
- Over 75,000,000 gallons of water saved, (equal to over 11,900 Americans showering every day for 1 year)
Optimum Energy has engineered energy and water saving solutions for multi-site HVAC systems in a number of industries, including data centers, pharmaceutical companies, and many university campuses.
