Appalachian State University partners with Aircuity on energy efficiency

Sponsored by

Appalachian State University will be implementing Aircuity’s energy efficiency solutions in three science facilities on the Boone, N.C., campus as part of a larger energy services contract with Pepco Energy Services. Energy savings in both lab and non-lab areas are expected to exceed 1 million kWh of electricity annually.

Aircuity and channel partner Hoffman Building Technologies have been subcontracted through Pepco Energy Services for the project, which is the second contract awarded to the firm. Aircuity’s centralized demand based control solutions will be installed in the Chemistry, Astronomy and Physics (CAP) Building and both the north and south wings of the Rankin Science Hall.

In the CAP Building and the south wing of the Rankin Science Hall, Aircuity solutions will be implemented in both lab and non-lab spaces and in the north wing of the Rankin Science Hall Aircuity will be installed in both labs and a small animal vivarium.

Aircuity’s installation within the laboratories and other variable occupancy areas of the buildings will help drive energy savings through optimizing the ventilation rates. Aircuity’s multiplexed centralized sensing system, OptiNet, continuously monitors critical indoor parameters, lowering the ventilation when the air is clean and increasing fresh air when an issue has been detected.

The university will also be using Aircuity Advisor Services to help in the continuous commissioning of these spaces and to manage the labs. Energy savings through Aircuity’s solutions alone are expected to top 1 million kWh of electricity annually. These energy savings will help to fund other energy projects on Appalachian State University’s campus.
