Enertiv Case Studies

We are proud to show the specific ways in which Enertiv has helped owners and operators save operating costs, avoid equipment replacement, and maximize tenant health & comfort.


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified that condensor water pumps as weather-dependent loads and suggested changing the schedule to be more consistent with occupancy and outside air temperature, resulting in $36,000 in savings annually.

Human Error: AC Unit Schedule and Set Point

Savings: Equipment replacement + tenant comfort


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified that the schedule for an AC unit had been accidentally inversed between occupied and unoccupied hours and set points misprogrammed. Quick resolution avoided further short cycling and ensure that tenants benefitted from conditioned air during occupied hours.


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified that chilled water pumps could be run sequentially instead of simultaneously to reduce peak demand by 10% and save $5,000 annually.

Predictive Maintenance: Makeup Air Unit

Savings: Equipment replacement + tenant comfort


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified that a 15-ton A/C unit was on the verge of failure and notified the building operators to immediately shut down and repair.

Short Cycling: A/C Unit Serving Elevator Machine Room

Savings: Equipment replacement + tenant comfort


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified that a 7.5-ton A/C unit was experiencing short cycling, causing overheating of the machine room and the conditions for an elevator shutdown.


This case study explores how Enertiv's system was used to identify annual savings of 20% of total spend through operational improvements and retrofit installations with an overall payback period of four years.


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified that the HVAC schedule in an office building was not matched to occupancy hours and how operators made adjustments to save thousands of dollars in energy costs.

Fault Detection: Exhaust Fan Malfunction

Savings: Maintenance costs


This case study explores how Enertiv's system was used to bring down the resolution time for rooftop exhaust fan failures from one week to two hours.


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified an error in the transcription of manual meter reading that resulted in a nearly $16,000 discrepancy for a tenant.

Vendor Accountability: Combined Heat and Power

Savings: Maintenance + energy costs


This case study explores how Enertiv's system was used to ensure that maintenance on a combined heat and power (CHP) unit was performed as required by the third party vendor.

Savings: Equipment replacement


This case study explores how Enertiv's system was used to identify which buildings in a portfolio were experiecing basement floods during a heavy rain storm.

Savings: Compliance Penalties


This case study explores how Enertiv's system was used to verify initial and continued compliance with a utility Interruptible Gas Program, eliminating the risk of costly penalties for non-compliance.

Savings: Equipment replacement + tenant experience


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified an issue in an elevator's braking system and how operators were able to make a small repair before an emergency shutdown was necessary.

Savings: Tenant comfort


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified that the primary boiler was not operating as designed and notified operators, who quickly turned it back on after an inadvertent shutdown to ensure continued tenant comfort.

Savings: Measurement & verification costs


This case study explores how Enertiv's system enabled building operators to isolate the costs associated with the lighting systems to verify the savings of an LED retrofit during a staggered installation.

Savings: Energy costs


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified that high demand from battery chargers were coinciding with the building's natural peak demand periods and how operators were able to shift that load to a more appropriate time to reduce peak demand charges.

Savings: Maintenance costs


This case study explores how Enertiv's system was used to shift the maintenance of a fan coil unit from schedule-based (every three months) to conditions-based (whenever performance reaches a certain threshold) to save maintenance hours and avoid over-maintenance.

Savings: Energy costs


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified that the lighting schedule in an office building was not matched to occupancy hours and how operators made adjustments to save 57% on lighting costs.

Savings: Equipment replacement


This case study explores how Enertiv's system identified short cycling in a variable frequency drive and how operators made a repair before a replacement VFD was required.
