The biomedical field is faced with $10 billion in energy costs every year – and climbing. This figure is driven by intense 24/7 mission critical operations, strict FDA-GMP lab requirements, cleanroom maintenance, facilities management, and data center security. Combined with constrained budgets and concern for capital expenditures, these factors have prevented healthcare, biotech, and life sciences organizations from proactively curbing their energy consumption.
Now it is possible to combine energy efficient retrofits with critical facility improvements for economic, environmental, and building occupant benefits. This means increased patient and staff comfort, optimum conditions for labs, manufacturing, and R&D centers, and improved sanitation and safety – all without necessarily incurring large upfront capital expenses. This is what we call Energy Effective™.
Ongoing pressure to reduce OpEx, COGS, and CAPEX, often leads to narrow, piecemeal solutions being prioritized over what’s most optimal. Better options are now available. Alternative financial structures, new sustainability technologies, and aggressive public incentive and government tax credit programs, create an exceptional opportunity to build an Energy Effective™ program.
This unique approach balances financial pragmatism with constructing better built environments. From lighting and advanced controls, to HVAC, mechanical systems, and data center solutions, our integrated programs result in tremendous savings, a more productive and comfortable work environment, and achievement of your sustainability goals.
Data centers are energy intensive facilities with complex operating requirements, from wide variations in server utilization and strict access requirements to optimization of CRAC units under differing loads. That’s why a key feature of our Energy Effective™ approach includes implementing: an integrated, open-protocol direct digital controls system that automates temperature control and CRAC utilization; collects system data in real time; and provides fault detection and diagnostics.
Delivering everything from intelligent cooling to advanced lighting controls, our experts execute projects in these sensitive spaces safely, securely, and reliably. This means zero impact on server room temperature, zero disruption of static pressure equilibrium and zero server downtime. Strategic integration of these data center specific improvements and new energy management technologies allows you to contain costs, increase systems resiliency, and benefit the planet.
Aging supermarkets and foodservice operations often find they are leaking hard won profits throughout their facilities, whether from lighting, humidity management, manufacturing and distribution, controlled climate storage, or refrigeration systems.
Rather than only focusing on efficient solutions, an Energy Effective™ program can simultaneously increase profits, enhance the grocery experience and manufacturing operations, all while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In just the last five years, ENGIE Services U.S. has helped both independent and large multinational foodservice chains save over 400 million kWh and secure over $25 million in utility incentives.
Energy costs are the fastest growing expense in hospitality. The rise of the ‘smart hotel’, a plethora of new technologies, and guest perception of sustainability as a positive brand attribute, create the perfect opportunity to modernize your hotel through its energy management strategy.
Our Energy Effective™ approach optimizes guest satisfaction, comfort, and convenience, while accelerating cost reduction and committing to climate stewardship. The result? Higher property values, happier customers, and a better bottom line.
What do the paper, metals, oil, chemical, electronics and transportation industries have in common? The relentless pressure to lower production costs, improve quality, increase safety, and reduce their carbon footprint both across operations and deep into their supply chain. All while defending markets from fierce global competition.
What if there were an approach that allowed you to address all of these seemingly contradictory objectives? Through a customized Energy Effective™ program, our expert engineers have helped all manner of manufacturers save energy and improve manufacturing processes. This means tackling your most challenging physical plant system problems, while simultaneously reducing your emissions, and garnering millions of dollars in incentives. Your bottom line can grow with state-of-the-art sustainability programs that create safer, more productive facilities for your staff.
