SEMINAR: Deployment of EOS Technology at Amalie Arena
The deployment of EOS technology at Amalie Arena has resulted in a 15% reduction in both consumption and demand. It is the 4th busiest arena in the US, with 7 unique types of day depending on the events of the day. The occupancy of the facility can vary in a 100:1 ratio day-to-day. The facility features thermal energy storage in the concrete structure and a 650,000-gallon thermal storage unit. Data on 4,316 sensors is recorded every minute and results in EOS writing 2,000 updates a day to the existing building systems. The system is cloud-based and requires a minimal on-site installation. The optimization has been accomplished using logical rules, equations, and optimization of cost functions using live building data. Tools such as Weka are used to define energy performance models. Model predictive control is added where base building systems need healing. The EOS technology provides optimization at a scale that exceeds human capabilities using the rules and logic that a human would use.
VP Engineering, SHIFT Energy
Charles leads a team that is bringing innovation to the operation of buildings, transforming intelligent-ready buildings into smart buildings that fully realize their potential. SHIFT’s energy engineers analyze the capabilities of complex building systems, optimize the performance of those systems, and leave behind SHIFT’s EOS software – that continues to make those adjustments automatically in real time. Charles has over 20 years of experience leading multi-disciplinary teams through complex challenging projects and bringing new technologies to the market. Charles is also a Certified Energy Manager (CEM), a Certified Measurement & Verification Professional (CMVP), Certified Demand-side Manager (CDSM), and a Registered Engineer (P.Eng). Previously Charles designed control solutions for Space Shuttle programs (STS-77), initiation of explosives, RF telecom, and building systems.
