Standard design and operating practice for laboratory ventilation systems usually results in system static pressure setpoints that are higher than actually required. Dynamically optimizing system static pressure can reduce energy use and improve airflow control in laboratories. Recent results at EPA?s Research Triangle Park Facility in Durham, North Carolina show a 15% reduction in annual energy costs with a simple payback of about 2 years.
