The Drawdown Project

Solution Summary

Reducing energy in our buildings and cities is a vital step to net-zero

Innovations to reduce energy demand and the amount of carbon in the atmosphere caused by our buildings and cities are proliferating. In many cases it can be more economical and sustainable for owners to repurpose and retrofit an existing building rather than build new.

Smart Labs

Critical indoor environments such as a bio-safety lab often require 100% per cent outdoor air, with a full change over of internal air volume, up to 15 times per hour during normal operation.

A huge amount of air is expended by ventilation systems in heating, cooling, humidifying, dehumidifying, filtering, distributing, supplying and expelling air

Drawdown By 50%

Aircuity’s technology is equipped with environmental sensors that can operate critical indoor environments safely with just two air changes per hour on average. The technology does this by scanning and rebalancing ventilation, air-conditioning and heating for greatest efficiency and effectiveness.

[98% of the time air quality is clean. It’s only a small amount of time that you actually need to increase airflow to purge the lab and keep it clean.]

Occupational Health & Safety

Aircuity saves energy while maintaining personnel safety, so that the environment adheres to strict safety standards for environmental quality, thermal comfort and airflow.

Continuous monitoring of the lab environment provides data 24/7.

First Step – Assessment
Energy Analysis and Return On Investment Tool

First used to evaluate energy & first cost impact of demand based control. Over last 5 years it has evolved into a general purpose lab energy savings & first cost impact analysis tool.

The Aircuity financial tool is recognised by the International Institute of Sustainable Laboratories I2SL.

The tool is unique in its focus on ventilation, cooling and heating systems that dominate energy use in laboratories.
