TES Without Ice

ASHRAE Journal     July 2007

In 1971 IBM built a semiconductor manufacturing facility in Bromont, a small town in the Eastern Townships, about 62 miles (100 km) from Montréal, Québec. Located in a rural setting on 1,000 acres (405 ha) of land, this 800,000 ft2 (74 322 m2) plant primarily assembles semiconductors on substrates to ultimately create microprocessors.
More than 25 years ago, IBM set an annual objective of reducing energy consumption by 4%. IBM Bromont has consistently achieved this target and saved nearly 500,000 MWh in the last 15 years, taking into account an erosion factor of 20% per year.

Saving with Thermal Storage

ACHR News     May 2007

More than 15 years ago, the leadership at IBM Corp. challenged the management of the company’s facilities to reduce energy consumption by 4 percent each year. The staff at IBM Bromont, a semiconductor manufacturing facility in Bromont, Québec, has consistently met that objective, saving close to 500,000 MWh in energy during the last 15 years.
As the facility continues to improve its energy efficiency, however, the ability to record additional energy savings is becoming increasingly more difficult and leading the Bromont facility to consider new technologies to achieve its goal.
