Cable & Wireless: new HVAC technology responsible for over 88% of total efficiency gains

About Ltd: HQ, Lancashire, UK. SolarCool Energy Ltd assists clients across various sectors in the efficient, effective and sustainable delivery of energy – driving permanent cost reduction for tits clients’ businesses and premises.

In late 2014, and though to the middle of 2015, Cable and Wireless (BTC Bahamas) undertook a significant energy saving initiative investment with the aim of reducing total building energy consumption.

A year later, following a review of the performance for the 12 facilities, C&W is reporting significant savings exceeding 35%. Considering one of the buildings in isolation, the Camperdown facility, according to Cable and Wireless engineers, the ThermX solar assisted HVAC system is alone responsible for 88% of the efficiency gain, and therefore is tracking on target for a 1.8 year return on C&W’s investment.

It also should be noted that a huge portion of the above installation cost was necessary capital expenditure on end of life equipment. Therefore the ROI on retrofit facilities would be very attractive indeed.

Brian Jacques, BTC’s senior property manager, said: “I can confirm that the original energy consumption figures from BTC’s prior and post invoices, from which the HVAC savings were calculate are factual and were provided by our in house engineers. We are all very proud of the results”. 

SolX Energy, was established in late 2013 and has caught the eye of many large industry leaders with regard to its cost cutting solution to the single highest consumer of electricity on most buildings, the HVAC or refrigeration system. With the ability to retrofit onto most existing variable refrigerant flow systems, SolX is positioned to become a leading disruptive player in the efficiency industry. The ability to deliver solutions that can reduce demand by over 40% are in high demand, especially with ROI’s well below three years and as low as 1.5 years. It’s hardly surprising it is experiencing growth exceeding 300% year on year.

SolX continues to solidify its place as a disruptive entry to the HVAC industry, and recently began their expansion into the United States market.  With installations now complete in some Florida Government facilities, JFK Airport in New York, Johnson Matthey in California, and Cummins Turbo Technologies in South Carolina, to name a few.

One to watch in the ever growing energy efficiency space.
