Thiago Bacic, Business Development Manager for Radix will present on Radix's framework for energy efficiency, and will talk about 3 case studies. The presentation, “3 Steps to Reduce Operational Costs and Increase Energy Efficiency” is on March 1st at 4:15 p.m. The presentation discusses the challenges associated with managing complex campus environments with multiple mixed-use areas that are in use 24/7.

Presentation Abstract

Variable power demand presents a huge challenge for campuses looking to meet consumption needs while maximizing energy efficiency. This presentation will discuss a 3-step solution Radix has implemented for multiple clients. For the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Radix implemented an Energy Audit and a scenario-based Advisory System that provides ongoing control and visibility over energy usage and makes real-time recommendations to keep the physical plant running at maximum possible efficiency. Expected results are 3%/$1,000,000 annual reduction in operating costs. A second case is how Radix developed an Operational Intelligence system for Ecogen, a utilities management specialist. The Intelligent Optimization Platform, called PIMS, is capable of detecting instrumentation failure, monitoring equipment performance, predictive failure detection and equipment selection for operational optimization. Expected results are reduced maintenance time and costs, better data reliability, improved energy efficiency, and reduced CO2 emissions.

“The PIMS project done in partnership with Radix is another big step towards digital transformation in Ecogen’s operations. Each of the tools in this project contributes on getting maximum energy efficiency, data reliability and reliability of the operation itself. The partnership was fundamental to digitalize and automate Ecogen’s know-how developed over 20 years of energy solution implementations and operations,” said Erick Rocha, Engineering Manager at Ecogen Brazil.

A third case will discuss an Operational Assessment and an energy efficiency study of a Cogeneration plant for George Washington University. Expected operational savings for GWU could be up to 27%."

Radix will also have a poster presentation on How Operational Intelligence Improves Utilities’ Efficiency and Reduces Costs.
