AES facilitates the change from on-site energy production to the community energy system, and from there, reduces building owners’ total cost of ownership by taking over building system upkeep and maintenance. Prior to selecting 75F as a controls partner, AES was working with whichever controls solution already existed at customer locations and frequently needed to make site visits to diagnose and correct system issues.
To simultaneously enhance customer service and make their own internal processes more efficient, AES sought a control solution that could provide remote access, analytics, and alert capabilities under a single pane of glass.
Akron Energy Systems (AES)
Akron Energy Systems (AES) is the city of Akron, Ohio’s community energy system operator. Community energy systems utilize a central plant to produce steam and chilled water that is then distributed to buildings through a network of underground pipes, eliminating the need for onsite equipment and lowering buildings’ total energy use.
AES considered numerous control providers during their selection process. The organization landed on 75F due to the system’s cloud-enabled remote control and robust analytics, pre-packaged control sequences with ASHRAE GPC 36 built-in, and the potential to scale, all at an accessible price point for all players involved.
AES has since installed 75F in sites ranging from Canal Park Stadium — home to the RubberDucks baseball team — to a network of city fire stations.
AES has improved air quality and lowered energy use with simple and scalable economizer control. By installing 75F’s Outside Air Optimization, AES immediately reduced technician calls and occupant discomfort. This has resulted in an annual cost reduction of 19% across their HVAC business at the site. Better yet, AES installed 75F for 8 to 10X less than other control systems available on the market.
