Challenge

The First Group appointed ENGIE Solutions to perform an energy audit of its Metro Central hotel apartments. Opportunities for energy savings were perceived initially to be low because the building is served by a district cooling plant (DCP).

Solutions

ENGIE Solutions identified a host of cost-effective solutions to improve the efficiency of a variety of building systems. These included:

  • Surrender of excess cooling demand to the DCP to reduce readjust associated charges.
  • Chilled water flow optimization
  • Room FCU temperature control during unoccupied periods
  • Kitchen fan scheduling
  • Installation of water aerators/reducers for wash basins and shower heads
  • Lighting replacement in corridor areas

Metro Central investment was paid back through the energy savings in just 12 months.
