Immediate changes to the BMS settings resulted in a significant reduction in the runtimes for chillers and air handling units. In February to May 2017, measured landlord energy consumption was 42% lower than the previous year, showing the immediate impact of the CAPP changes. Savings are not expected to be as high for the full year, but the minimum quantified forecast saving is £91,000.
With the building now optimised, Carbon Credentials is monitoring the site remotely using the BMS data and reporting automatically to Corn Exchange and Cushman & Wakefield. This allows issues and faults to be quickly identified and rectified, avoiding impacts on the tenants and potential plant damage. This will save significant amounts of energy and cost in 2017 and beyond.
