EFFICIENT COOLING & REFRIGERATION PLATFORM - ECORE
Conventional cooling systems and controllers do not emphasize energy efficiency. Even chiller system controllers that claim to reduce energy use, do not take a holistic approach to energy savings. Our proprietary and patented technology, developed in 2010, focuses on the supply side of the energy system. OEM’s ECORE platform includes representation of the detailed performance characteristics of the chillers (as specified in ARI-certified part load values published by chiller manufacturers) and the appropriate refrigerants properties.
ECORE then uses our proprietary algorithm to optimize the energy supply system by dynamically determining and optimizing system parameters - such as the condensing temperature, compressor inlet and outlet pressures, multiple chiller loading, etc. - taking into account the performance characteristics of the compressors, pumps, fans, and cooling towers. Focusing on the supply side eliminates the vagaries of human factors for the long-term viability of the savings.
ECORE is perfect for facilities with large cooling loads, cooling costs that account for 30% or more of total energy costs, and annual operating hours in excess of 4000. Examples include:
COLD STORAGE WAREHOUSES
The technology underlying ECORE was developed by OEM in 2010 and patented in 2014 (Patent # US 8,660,702 B2). This proprietary approach is recognized as unique and unparalleled in the market.
The ECORE platform ensures that chiller systems run at optimal levels to deliver savings of around 20-35%. of chiller system energy use and costs.
The basic ECORE pricing model is the Software as a Service (SaaS) licensing model in which you will realize immediate savings with no upfront capital costs, and the monthly or quarterly license fees are less than the savings achieved. We also offer a turnkey implementation model. With a one-time payment providing a two to three-year payback.
We provide a guarantee of energy and cost savings, and your payments to us are contingent upon our demonstrating the achieved savings.
The ECORE platform adds on to the existing equipment/system and represents a totally non-intrusive retrofit. It requires no interruption of facility operations and therefore no compromise in any operational and safety features or user comfort.
Remote MonitoringOur remote monitoring interface displays system configuration, shows operating conditions of all equipment, summarizes performance characteristics, provides alerts of operations outside tolerance levels, allows for identification of operating issues, and facilitates troubleshooting and repairs.
OEM controllers can be interfaced through communication protocols with an existing Building Management System (BMS) or Human Machine Interface (HMI) of any make and model.
Once ECORE identifies the correct operating parameters, it functions independent of human intervention. The system will provide alerts of any issues that may degrade operating efficiency and recommend corrective actions to ensure ongoing effective performance.
We offer the SaaS model that has the following characteristics:
- An initial fee based on any hardware such as sensors that are acquired and installed in the customer facility.
- A monthly, quarterly or annual license fee that includes maintenance, support & upgrades.
- 3 to 5-year initial agreement; renewable at customer option.
- License payments structured to be substantially less than the cost savings achieved.
An optional Turnkey pricing model is also available. Under this customer option, there is a one-time payment upon implementation, commissioning and verification of savings.
