Central Plant Optimization

Starting right with central plant efficiency

It’s usually tucked far away from public sight, but it’s the place that can offer the biggest energy savings: The central chilled water plant.

Johnson Controls provides flexible Central Plant Optimization packages to optimize plant performance, so it works as a single, integrated system – not a collection of independent components and controls. Whether it’s in the design phase of a new facility or helping comply with energy or environmental mandates in existing buildings, we know how to reach the highest potential in central plant efficiency.

Research lab uses advanced technology to reduce energy use and carbon footprint
The laboratory, which is engaged in more than 600 programs designed to “enhance national security through science and technology” for the U.S. government, committed to reduce its CO2 emissions by 5,700 metric tons. The facility managers tapped their long-time partners at Johnson Controls, who suggested a focus on improving efficiency within their HVAC system with a Central Plant Optimization solution. The result? Increased plant efficiency, energy savings, reduced carbon footprint and financial savings.
