BUSINESS:

MULTI-NATIONAL TECHNOLOGY MANUFACTURER

LOCATION:

365,000 SQUARE FOOT ENGINEERING COMPLEX

SILICON VALLEY, CALIFORNIA

PROJECT SUMMARY:

This Silicon Valley tech manufacturer produces microprocessors found in virtually every brand of cell phone and digital camera. They approached IoEnergy for a building automation system that would lower their utility bills and improve the building efficiency and lighting in their engineering complex. The update needed to be cutting edge, and provide data-enhanced building intelligence that the engineers would both benefit from and appreciate. Additionally, the implementation team needed help developing the business case for the CFO.

The project resulted in lower utility bills, improved lighting, and reduced lighting maintenance. More importantly, they now have access to granular “Big Data” on occupancy patterns, temperature, and energy consumption. The upgrade enabled participation in utility-sponsored demand response programs and was financed in part by custom utility rebates.

Project Scope:
  • Economic Analysis & Business Case Justification
  • Dimming LED Lighting Retrofits
  • Title 24 Compliance
  • Granular Control Networking
  • Energy Management Dashboarding
Results:
  • $126,000 – First Year Energy and Maintenance Savings
  • 70% Lighting Energy Use Reduction
  • 65% Return on Investment
  • Payback Period of 1.53 Years – IRR = 60%
  • 100,000+ Hours LED vs 24,000 Hours T8 Fluorescent
