Heat source/air conditioning system overview
Heat source/air conditioning system overview Monthly heat source/secondary pump power consumption    

An ice thermal storage system combined with a super high-efficiency chiller is used as the heat source. Secondary A/C links FCU with AHU, using return air from FCU in AHU with cascade control. The system performs processes such as water conveyance using temperature difference of 13°C in summertime and water heat exchange in AHU after temperature of cold water is first raised in FCU in wintertime. The processes allows the temperature of outdoor air diffused inside the building to be raised to 15-16°C and enables heat recovery from cold water by lowering its temperature by 3-4°C using even colder outdoor air, thus achieving a reduction in A/C energy consumption. It also significantly contributed to electric-load leveling, as approximately half of power consumption has shifted to night-time (annual night-time power consumption of heat source: 53%).

These cases are described based on assessment results obtained using CASBEE.
CASBEE is a method for rating the environmental performance of buildings using Building Environmental Efficiency (BEE) as an indicator, which is based on the results of separate scores obtained for Q-1~Q-3 (Quality) and LR-1~LR-3 (Load Reduction).
