June 28, 2013: GeoModule Now Optimizing 1 Million Square Feet of Space

Control Software Increases Energy Efficiency of Geothermal Systems

June 28, 2013
WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. — Greensleeves LLC, which specializes in providing intelligent energy management that controls the thermal exchange in a geothermal borefield and optimizes the flow of energy through the system, announced that it has passed a significant milestone: 1 million square feet of building space utilizing its GeoModule™ control software.

The GeoModule control software uses unique, patent pending, energy optimization strategies that increase geothermal energy efficiency in hot, humid, and temperate climates — making geothermal effective in all climates from warmer climates like Texas and Florida to more seasonal climates like Alaska and Canada, says the company.

Robert Braam, general manager of geo operations at Greensleeves, said the company’s newest contract, to design energy-efficient environmental systems for 111,956 square feet of new campus facilities in Fort Wayne, Ind., pushes the three-year old company’s total to more than one million square feet completed or under construction.

Greensleeves’ largest single project was a 384,000-square-foot office building for the corporate headquarters of a large food service company.

“A million square feet is a drop in the ocean of all commercial buildings in the U.S., but for us it is a huge benchmark. Little by little we are helping universities, hospitals, and commercial and industrial operations achieve substantial energy efficiency and significantly lower their energy costs,” said Braam.

“We’re using very sophisticated technology to reduce these companies’ carbon footprints and their power bills,” he said.

Greensleeves is a client company of the University of Central Florida Business Incubation Program in Winter Springs, Fla.
