HVAC Requirements

  • Executive Summary
    • Steer the building proactively into the comfort zone
    • Ensure the demands are always small because there are no "big" changes / catch ups
    • Manage the humidity (latent component) as it is critical to comfort
    • All systems should support learning and continuous improvement. It will take three years to reach a steady state.
    • We should always ask ourselves "Would anyone else do this if they saw what we did and its cost?". If not, then we need to be seeking a better sustainable value.
    • Our design requires the thermal tank storage to meet peak day demands.
    • We require the ability to heat and cool on the same day but not at the same time.

Controls Requirements

  • Executive Summary
    • Want a platform that can be user controlled and evolved.
    • Promotes learning and continuous improvement
    • Use earth's natural energy first...then lowest carbon/cost energy next
    • All controls to connect two way (performance data out...control changes in) with the internet
    • Need ability to see real-time the control data via the website
    • No not want everything automated. We don't know the building well enough yet. Let us manually control until we develop patterns of operation. Then put them into the controls logic.
  • Strategy for Sustainable Controls at the Green Garage can be found in this powerpoint presentation File:Strategy for Sustainable Controls.pdf.
