Award-Winning Excellence at Premiere Energy Conferences

Teams share knowledge and exchange insights at two premiere energy conferences.

November 17, 2023     

Our Global Engineering and Sustainability teams help identify and pilot innovative solutions for water conservation, energy efficiency and emissions reduction. Their activities have not only been instrumental in helping BMS progress toward its environmental goals, but have also helped our industry partners and colleagues discover and learn about innovative solutions to some of the world’s most complex environmental challenges.

Recently, two of our engineers participated at the 2023 ENERGY STAR Products Partner Meeting and the Association of Energy Engineers World Energy Conference & Expo. At the event, they accepted an award on behalf of BMS for one of the Top Energy Projects by ENERGY STAR for automated fault detection and diagnostics (AFDD) in pharmaceuticals.

Dan Groza, associate director for Building Automation Systems, shared BMS’ AFDD journey, a significant initiative across eight BMS sites, and the many benefits of the platform, including reduced energy costs and GHG emissions, improved equipment reliability, and prioritized maintenance issues, which in turn, help facilities run more efficiently and effectively.

Speaking about the BMS AFDD project, Danny Macri of ENERGY STAR thanked BMS for sharing solutions to enhance operations and energy efficiency.

“Your presentation on automatic fault detection and diagnostics was very timely,” Macri said. “It provided both a primer for companies new to this topic and excellent examples and details for those that are more advanced.”  

Andrew Maude, associate director, Global Energy & Sustainability, also shared his expertise, highlighting a BMS case study that investigated different solutions for thermal heat recovery systems at the Devens, MA, facility.

“Participating at conferences and not only sharing our learnings but being able to learn from others has been very beneficial in exposing us to new technology opportunities and greater optimization,” said Maude. “We look forward to continuing to collaborate and work alongside partners such as ENERGY STAR to continue to advance solutions around energy efficiency.”
