2RW conducted comprehensive energy audits and created an energy master plan that guided the development of a utility master plan for the renovation and expansion of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta international Airport. The airport owner’s primary goals of this project were to improve passenger comfort and reduce operating costs.
2RW conducted a a demand-side energy audit which entailed a site survey, existing conditions analysis, energy conservation measures, and a summary report. The opportunities that 2RW identified and analyzed to improve cooling and heating strategies ranged from equipment maintenance and replacement to a complete redesign of central cooling and heating plants, distribution systems, and terminal layouts.
The results of the audits and analysis helped the Airport owner and operator:
The utility master plan incorporated these findings into long-range plans that enabled the utility infrastructure to keep pace with and enhance future airport expansions.
The quantitative methods 2RW developed to understand the full costs of heating and cooling the airport enabled more-effective management of energy and water resources.
