OpenBlue Central Utility Plant is an innovative software product which helps central energy facility managers and operators minimize operational costs, reduce energy consumption, reduce water consumption, and shrink carbon footprints.
The Project Engineer will develop detailed models that drive the optimization algorithms, assist with the commissioning and user training, and perform savings measurement and verification (M&V) analysis.
Communicate with site engineers to analyze current central plant configuration, operation, and performance.
Gather, cleanse, and process data from various sources and utilize data analysis tools and techniques to organize the data for use in CPO analysis
Use energy modeling / simulation tools to estimate potential savings from implementing CPO and other energy conservation measures
Use problem solving skills to validate simulation results and troubleshoot simulations
Following integration to plant automation systems, lead the process of commissioning to ensure CPO algorithms are dispatching plant in an optimal fashion aligned with simulation models
Troubleshoot through plant automation systems to identify issues during commissioning.
Train and support plant managers’ and operators’ understanding of CPO software
Perform savings measurement and verification (M&V) analysis after CPO has been operational
Work on estimation and pre-sales support of different data driven products
