About this Project

Identifying opportunities to better monitor energy led Austec to seek out a holistic IoT solution to complement their existing building management system. Hyperdome’s air-conditioning utilizes cooling from seven separate chilled water plants spread across the entire centre, using multiple chiller plants in addition to nine separate power supply transformers (spread across four switch rooms). Due to the large single-story floor plan, load management was particularly difficult. Most importantly, peak demand accounted for almost half of the total electricity costs for the site.

To lower costs and energy usage, Austec needed a strategy to reduce peak demand while keeping the temperature comfortable for store owners and shoppers. Austec was able to fine-tune the BMS operation of the chiller plants and associated AHU to maximize efficiencies of all equipment, achieving a 7.7% peak demand reduction and an overall saving of 12.6% total energy costs.
