|Optimum Energy’s OptimumMVM™ Service Advances Commercial HVAC
Management; Enables Persistent Energy Reductions.
Web-based measurement, verification and management service provides real-time operating
information and analysis tools for fast detection, diagnosis and repair of HVAC system faults.
Optimum Energy, LLC, provider of heating, ventilating and air
conditioning (HVAC) software solutions that set a new standard in energy efficiency, today
introduced OptimumMVM™, a Web-based measurement, verification and management service
that is advancing the processes for day-to-day management of commercial HVAC systems and
enabling persistent energy reductions in systems optimized with
OptimumMVM is a key component of OptimumHVAC, a networked software solution that
utilizes patented relational-control technologies to reduce energy consumption in commercial
HVAC systems by 30 to 60 percent, and maintains those savings through ongoing measurement,
verification and management. OptimumMVM provides continuous
operating data and analysis tools to measure system performance, and quickly detect, diagnose and repair system faults
that are caused by changes and malfunctions in mechanical and control systems. As a result,
the common problem of performance “drift” is prevented, ensuring that operating cost
reductions resulting from HVAC energy efficiency investments are sustained year after year.
“While most industries have greatly improved their business processes, productivity and profits
through the use of enterprise applications, they have not, until now, been applied to the
commercial HVAC industry,” said Nathan Rothman, founder and CEO of Optimum Energy.
“Optimum Energy is changing that with our networked software solution that enables our
customers to achieve up to 60 percent energy reductions today. OptimumMVM plays a key role
in sustaining those savings, making previously invisible operations completely transparent. The
ability to access and intelligently utilize performance data 24/7 is transforming the way our
customers operate and maintain their plants.”
The OptimumMVM service offers a wide range of features that enable HVAC system operators
to consistently maintain their plants for optimal performance. By displaying efficiency and
operating data graphically, for the first time it is possible to see exactly how the HVAC system is
performing at any point in time. As a result, operators no longer have to wait for a formal
commissioning process, or rely on physical inspections to uncover and diagnose hidden system
faults that impact energy efficiency.
