Optimal control coordination of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment can reduce energy by more than 20% over current building automation systems (BASs) but is not widely deployed due to challenges with complexity, scalability, and deployment. The goal of this project is to demonstrate cost-effective and scalable deployment of optimal controls that achieve more than 20% HVAC energy reduction versus state-of-the-art BASs. This technology targets BASs for medium-size buildings with central HVAC systems; medium and large market segments account for ~35% of commercial building HVAC energy use (1.9 quads).
