Johnson Controls® OpenBlue Central Utility Plant (CUP) is a solution package of multiple software applications that help reduce energy use, carbon footprint, and operating cost in heating, cooling, and distributed electricity generation plants, without sacrificing reliability.

The OpenBlue Plant Optimizer application collects up-to-the-minute data and applies predictive algorithms to help you stage equipment and select set points to achieve maximum cost savings only, greenhouse gas emissions reduction only, or both maximum cost savings and greenhouse gas emissions reductions. The Plant Optimizer application displays the following data:

  • Visualizations of high-level plant operation, details about equipment command dispatches, and details about the hourly load, weather, and pricing forecasts that the platform uses. You can also edit this forecast data.
  • Weekly reports on efficiency, failures, and outages for the previous seven days.
  • Recommendations and actions based on calculated data to help you make informed, data-driven decisions to improve efficiency and reduce operational costs.
