Our chiller supplier says that their equipment will save 40% of energy consumption. How can we be sure?

Despite the large number of professionals in the field of “energy efficiency” with the highest technical and ethical standards, a few actors wielding exaggerated or even plain deceptive claims have given a bad name to “energy efficiency” in some cases.

The assistance of an expert engineer on the client’s side is a small price to pay in projects where the performance of the company is at stake.

The case of chillers, for example, is one where the recent evolution of technology and controls has allowed for energy savings in excess of 40% compared to inefficient and poorly controlled technologies. These projects, however, require extreme care in the development and execution to ensure those savings are realized.
