Your central plant is likely the biggest contributor to occupant comfort, the biggest supplier of energy—and the biggest consumer of energy. Keep it running at optimum efficiency with the next generation of plant optimization software from Johnson Controls. We build on our innovative OpenBlue digital platform to connect systems and data for intelligent, automated decision-making. See rapid ROI, drive down costs, increase reliability and advance your sustainability goals.
Our Central Utility Plant (CUP) solution monitors thousands of variables, gathering data every 15 minutes from your connected equipment and from external sources such as weather forecasts and utility rates. CUP automatically generates and implements optimization decisions, controlling many brands of equipment and plant types. You make the most of utility incentives and minimize utility costs.

Stanford University CUP Builds on Innovative Design
Heat recovery chillers and thermal energy storage are key to increasing savings while supporting net-zero greenhouse gas emission targets.
CUP Creates Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings at Kent State University
Economic load demand response (ELDR) revenue is projected to double with CUP. This new approach to optimization drives revenue as part of an energy savings performance contract (ESPC).
Children’s of Alabama Saves Capital with CUP
With two separately metered central plants, this pediatric hospital found it challenging to minimize utility costs. CUP technology maintains essential redundancy while increasing efficiency and savings.
