Vice President of Production Peter Moskal summarizes his journey along with the rest of the EES team at the 2023 Control System Integrators Association Executive Conference in New Orleans, LA.
Continuing where we left off with optimizing chilled water flow, this article is taking a look at cooling tower control for the same large shopping mall in the DC area. When EES showed up for the first time on site at the chiller/tower plant, the tower control was terrible. The control was “tuned” by the client’s local HVAC tech, and it went from off, to 90%, to off, every few minutes.
Lighting based on time clocks can sometimes feel like it’s a draining the life out of your wallet. EES tackles this problem with a simple, closed-loop control solution.
When you retrofit Rockwell SLC Hardware that has reached it’s end of life, you transform old equipment to perform like new again.
Engineered Energy Solutions offers a unique approach called “SpecDoComm” for structuring profitable partnerships to lower project risk and total cost of ownership for large project bid situations.
We recently challenged ourselves to quantify how many tons of carbon dioxide EES has prevented from being released into the atmosphere on our clients’ behalf, thus lowering their carbon footprints. Our conservative estimate is that our projects are saving more than 3 ½ tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) every hour! We have optimized and automated over 100,000 tons of refrigeration since we started in April 1976.
Pivoting quickly during the pandemic to offer socially-distanced entertainment for the local community of Holmdel, NJ, Bell Works contracted EES to install remote control of parking lot lights within four days.

I guess the old saying “what goes around, comes around” if you wait long enough, is true in the controls industry as well. We had for many years, a large telecommunications client for whom we had installed PLC-based building controls in the late eighties. The client was forward thinking in regards to the energy consumed by their 2.2 million square-foot R&D facility. Having the innovative corporate culture that fueled hundreds of patents per year, they recognized the rewards we were offering with our new (at the time) PLC-based energy control system. Back in the day, no one was applying PLCs to central utility plants and major air handling systems like we were and after a review of the numbers, they took a chance. After completing the installation, we saved them $500,000 per year with a return on investment in under two years. When the project ultimately lead to the client winning an award from the State of New Jersey for energy management, we had a client for life.
