2 Presentation Objectives Review Current Energy/Water Conservation Strategies Water Management and Conservation How can Commissioning Benefit Owners? On-site Alternative Renewable Energy Solutions Emerging Technologies Global responsibility – GHGA Review Case Studies Questions & Answers Presentation Objectives

3 Current Energy Conservation Strategies Identify low hanging fruit Install occupancy sensors Behavior modifications Saved Toledo Express Airport approximately $35,000 per year Additional $40,000 to $80,000 of potential savings Propose waterless urinals and/or dual flush valves Current Energy/Water Conservation Strategies

4 Current Energy Conservation Strategies Temperature adjustments and equipment shut down during non-peak hours Adjust reset and set-back temperatures and temperature settings Staging/sequencing of boilers, chillers, and air handling units Adjust and repair dampers and economizers Current Energy/Water Conservation Strategies

5 Current Energy Conservation Strategies Modify control strategies for standard hours of operation Eliminate simultaneous heating and cooling Air and water distribution balancing and adjustments Verify controls and control sequencing Verify that overrides are released Florida client, approximately $250,000 in tax credits Current Energy/Water Conservation Strategies

6 Greater Orlando Aviation Authority Utility Bill & Tariff Review Identified / verified $430k per year savings Quantified demand for $250k OUC rebate Concession Rates & Billing Study Identified $36k per year recovery Recommended tiered rate structure Chilled Water Cost Analysis Identified $50k per month recovery Central Energy Plant Optimization Study Identified savings of $170k per year

10 Fundamental Commissioning Pre-requisite for LEED certification The process of commissioning Benefits of commissioning Fundamental Commissioning

11 Enhanced Commissioning An additional credit for LEED certification There is a third party independent commissioning authority Benefits of enhanced commissioning Enhanced Commissioning

12 Retro - Commissioning Defined as commissioning a building thats never been commissioned Working with the owners facility staff Benefits of retro-commissioning Retro - Commissioning

13 Positive Feedback Commissioning Also known as Continuous Commissioning, as developed and trademarked by Texas A&M University Real time web enabled monitoring and reporting of building performance Benefits of positive feedback commissioning Positive Feedback Commissioning (Trademark in Process)

14 What are airports doing regarding energy reduction and alternative renewable energy solutions? On-site Alternative Renewable Energy Solutions

15 San Francisco International Airport harnesses solar power A solar power system has been installed on the roof of San Francisco International Airport's Terminal 3 On-site Alternative Renewable Energy Solutions - San Francisco International Airport

16 Project San Francisco International Airport installed a 445kW solar array. Results Results Will contribute approximately 628,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) yearly of totally green, non-polluting electrical power

17 The solar array generated 3.3 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean electricity year 1 The solar array generated 3.3 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean electricity year 1 On-site Alternative Renewable Energy Solutions - Solar Array Denver International Airport

18 Three photovoltaic projects underway/completed at DIA to date: Pena Boulevard array:2 Megawatt facility 7.5 acres 9,254 solar panels at 216 watts/panel Generated 3.3 million kWh year 1 Fuel Farm array:1.6 Megawatt facility 9 acres 7,392 panels at 216 watts/panel Will to generate 2.4M kWh year project:4.3 Megawatt facility 30 acres On-site Alternative Renewable Energy Solutions - Solar Array Denver International Airport
