Abstract

The Vaccines & Diagnostics division of Novartis attempts to evaluate their energy efficiency to find ways to cut cost. By investigating their HVAC, chillers, pumps, and lighting systems of individual production sites, we have built a user friendly Excel-based model that will allow the company to explore ways to tweak their current systems to attain optimum energy efficiency. We have also developed a guide that explores good standards and practices to promote possible implementations to substantially decrease overall energy usage.
