Yardi Pulse Implementation at 200 Park Ave Named AEE Energy Project of the Year


Pulse Fault Detection and Pulse Building Optimization combined to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Sept. 9, 2021 — The Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) has selected the HVAC Optimization at 200 Park Ave in New York City as its 2021 Energy Project of the Year for Region I, which covers ten states in the northeastern U.S.

Yardi® energy solutions consultant CP Pitones led the project and will accept the prestigious award on behalf of Tishman Speyer and its partner in ownership, Irvine Company. Irvine Company has a long history of using the Yardi Pulse solution across its high-rise portfolio in coastal California and Chicago.

The size and scope of the project made HVAC optimization a challenge, especially balancing energy efficiency while maintaining occupant comfort. Throughout the collaboration, Yardi, Tishman Speyer and Irvine Company used a holistic, multi-phase approach to roll out the Yardi Pulse platform and drive results.

In 2019, Yardi engineers analyzed detailed data and implemented the first phase of the project, a fault detection module to identify issues with the HVAC system. Pulse® Fault Detection provided the dynamic trend reports and analytics necessary for building engineers to investigate the cause and impact of a fault. The second phase focused on improving the air handlers and chiller plants with intelligent load-based algorithms that optimize building automation system setpoints in real time.

Energy use savings after the first year were equal to over 2.5M kWhs and over 13,000 MLbs of steam. The parties are excited to continue making progress with 200 Park Ave throughout the remainder of the project cycle.

The Yardi Pulse Suite has a range of products to help organizations of all sizes meet their energy and sustainability goals.
