Reducing carbon on a peak day
A peak weekday
in July 2019.
HVAC CO2e footprint:
What the building and QCo wanted to do:
Use NYC hourly marginal emission rate forecasts to directly target CO2e reductions in NYC. And reduce Queens generating plant emissions – CO2e, SO2, NOx, and particulate matter.
What the building and QCo actually did:
EMeister MPC identified and executed the lowest cost HVAC strategy – savings tens of thousands of dollars … and likely tens of tons of carbon and other NYC emissions. Absent a NYISO emission rate forecast, EMeister MPC could not identify alternative carbon reduction strategies.
