BuildingIQ’s Meter Processing Flow

Our cloud-based Predictive Energy Optimization™ (PEO) platform is a paradigm-shifting technology used to reduce energy consumption in commercial, academic, and government buildings. The optimization process involves three basic steps:

Learning the thermal dynamics of the building; Refining the model through the slow convergence between parameter prediction and actual readings from the building; and Optimization, in terms of both energy efficiency and cost.

This paper focuses on the important process of collecting meter data and feeding it into the PEO model.

Energy Efficiency Ratings— Benchmarks that Drive Excellence in Building Design and Operations

Various rating systems for green buildings—LEED, Energy Star, NABERS, and Green Star—are expanding in scope, depth, and precision, and have been established in more than 100 countries. The rating systems bring meaning and professional integrity to energy-efficient design and operation to buildings, as well as products and appliances. The rating systems afford easy comparison among cohorts (“like” buildings), and serves as a competitive stimulus to drive progress in building operation and design.

Measurement and Verification Functionality of the BuildingIQ System

Reducing building energy use through the implementation of energy efficiency projects is a proven strategy. However, claims of energy efficiency savings must be supported by measurement. Clients, investors, program administrators, and other stakeholders now require quantifiable evidence that the contract or programmatic goals have been met. For every project—whether lighting retrofits or HVAC optimization—providing evidence of energy savings is a critical element to ensure limited dollars are spent in the most cost-effective manner. Measurement and verification is the process of quantifying savings delivered from an energy conservation measure. An important element of verification process is that it isolates the energy savings delivered by the project from other factors affecting energy consumption, such as weather or building occupancy.

Calculated the energy savings for third-party measurement and verification auditors is a critical step in securing financing and energy efficiency rebates.

BuildingIQ provides a unique Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to optimize energy use in commercial buildings. Download the white pager for full details on how to BuildingIQ’s system measures and verify energy savings.

BuildingIQ Security

The security of customer BMS and IT systems is of the utmost importance to BuildingIQ, and our products and policies reflect that. BuildingIQ stays abreast of and uses the best practices as they emerge from the IT security community whose sole focus is on quickly dealing with current threats and anticipating future ones.
