The Challenge

GP has set long-term emissions reduction targets and expects to meet the goals through short term and longterm energy efficiency projects and operational improvements. GP also expects to incorporate energy efficient design into new buildings and renovations, and to implement renewable energy projects.

GP’s portfolio of buildings includes energy intensive research and development buildings, administrative offices, central plants, manufacturing, and distribution facilities across the globe.

GP’s goals include efficiency and sustainability through a 20% reduction of CO2 emissions by 2020. To this end, GP was interested in implementing targeted energy conservation measures and technologies at one of its campuses.



Cimetrics was selected to provide its Analytika Pro solution for 5 buildings comprising over 860,000 square feet including R&D and office buildings. Cimetrics collaborated with Siemens, GP’s building automation system provider, to connect to and collect sensor and actuator data from over 7,900 physical points. Data was collected every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, totaling more than 750,000 data samples per day. The following systems were monitored: 44 hot water and chilled water distribution pumps, 4 boilers, 8 heat exchangers, 51 fume hoods, 42 air handling units, 4 heat recovery units, over 500 terminal units and exhaust fans.


Cimetrics worked with GP staff and their controls vendor to fix the valves that were not opening completely, and to maximize heat recovery for all four (4) AHUs.
