Intelligent Energy Management of Buildings

BuildingIQ offers technology-enabled efficiency improvement services for commercial buildings. Its cloud-based Predictive Energy Optimization platform leverages information from the building’s management system, as well as variables such as weather forecasts, occupancy patterns, energy rates and utility signals to make automatic adjustments to heating and cooling operations. As a result of these finely tuned adjustments, commercial buildings can reduce energy consumption from heating and cooling by as much as 25%, according to the company.

We’re proud to offer building owners an intelligent, customizable, and scalable solution to reduce heating and air conditioning consumption, a leading contributor to rising energy costs and our growing global emissions problem.

Presented in the form of real-time online dashboards, the system enables building owners and facility managers to identify savings directly attributable to the BuildingIQ service, and compare performance to baseline conditions. The platform is also able to communicate directly with utilities in order to facilitate seamless participation in demand response events. BuildingIQ’s services are offered on a subscription basis and require no significant infrastructure changes. So far, more than 140 commercial buildings use the system.

Why you should care

Commercial buildings account for nearly 20% of the USA’s energy consumption, with more than half the energy use going toward heating and lighting. In addition, buildings account for nearly 40% of the USA’s total CO2 emissions. BuildingIQ’s cloud-based cooling and heating optimisation mechanisms enable reductions in energy consumption and, consequently, CO2 emissions.
