Office buildings can achieve sizable energy cost savings and generate new revenue from demand response markets through real-time monitoring and control of building loads to reduce waste from unoccupied spaces.

Estimated savings can be between 13% and 20% of the utility bill and revenue earned from demand response markets.

Typical return on investment for a commercial building is between 9 and 15 months based on rebates and tax incentives available to the commercial building owner.

Solutions for Business

  • Smart Thermostats adjust temperature set points based on when employees are in the building or not. Temperature set-points can be adjusted to reflect changes in weather conditions. Spaces can be easily grouped or ungrouped (e.g., entire building or floor by floor) for ultimate flexibility of control.
  • Smart Plugs eliminate parasitic loads such as conference room lighting and projectors when not occupied and computer monitors when the building is unoccupied. They can also control vending machines, water heaters, and thermal loads when employees are not in the building.
  • Sensors can de-activate lighting and smart devices when people leave the room. They can also turn down lights when natural lighting provides sufficient illumination levels. Parking lot lighting can be scaled up when people are present.
  • Automate backup generator controls to enable greater participation in utility demand response incentive payment programs.
  • Access to the wholesale electricity market allows businesses to profit from demand response payments by responding to favorable market price signals.
  • All data is encrypted and secured safely in a remote data center and can only be accessed by authorized personnel from anywhere in the world. Integrate fire, carbon monoxide, and water alarms into the energy management system so a single dashboard can monitor and control building systems.
  • Maintenance notifications can alert facility staff to equipment that needs service.
