Sales: $16.5 billion Employees: 85 thousand worldwide 130 countries TAC is a Schneider Electric subsidiary that acquired Andover Controls in 2004 Fastest growing building automation company in the industry Provides complete, integrated building solutions, including HVAC, power, access control and security, lighting, performance contracting and fire & life safety.
TAC EnergyEdge TAC The Local Office Providing Integrated Building Control –Project Development –Project Design/Engineering –Project Installation –Project Commissioning –Service and Support TAC can Implement Any Proposed Energy Related Projects Large TAC System Installation at MIT –56 Building Installations –83 I/P Controllers –Elaborate Secure VPN NetworkSecure –19 Local and Portable Workstations –Web Client Accessibility –21,375 Hard Wired Inputs –13,411 Hard Wired Outputs –104,225 Programmed Numeric Points
TAC EnergyEdge Typical Control Components in an Occupied Space Typical Today - 4 –Temperature Sensor –Device to Measure air flow –Motor to drive airflow damper for cooling –Valve and motor to drive heating device Future for Optimizing Occupant Space Conditions- 9 –Same 4 points –Occupancy sensor –Lighting level sensor –Dimmable ballast –Indoor air quality Sensor –Motor for shades and blinds
TAC EnergyEdge Where are the costs associated with a Control System installation Historical Costs –Hardware - 45% –Labor Hours - 25% System Design Programming Testing Check-out and commissioning –Electrical Installation Labor – 30% Today’s Cost –Hardware - 25% –Labor Hours - 30% System Design Programming Testing Check-out and commissioning –Electrical Installation Labor – 45% Technology Improvements have driven the hardware costs of a control system down, while the cost of Labor has increased.
TAC EnergyEdge Control Industry Challenges Related to Energy Optimization Need for additional instrumentation drives up the cost of a control system –Drives up hardware costs Each added sensor or controlled device requires additional labor –Electrical installation –Field Check-out and Commissioning Business decisions are driven by a cost benefit analysis. Added Control System Cost Annual Energy Saved = Acceptable Payback
TAC EnergyEdge Is Energy Savings a Good Investment? Can industry reduce the cost of control installation. –Reduce Hardware Cost –Reduce Installation Cost Energy Cost Keep Rising Can Internet 0 help reduce installation costs?
