Enerliance Is Going to Haystack Connect

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

April 29th through May 2nd, we’ll be attending and speaking at the Haystack Connect Conference in Chattanooga Tennessee. Haystack Connect, named after Project Haystack, brings together system integrators, technology suppliers and customers interested in more efficient and sustainable buildings. The conference promises to offer the opportunity for these communities to network, share, learn and create new business.

Without getting into too many technical details, Project Haystack is an open source project that makes it easier for building equipment from multiple vendors to talk to each other.  Since better communication allows for more control and optimization, it’s a project we’re definitely excited about.

We’ll be participating in two speaking engagements during the conference.

On Tuesday April 30th from 3:30 to 5:00pm, Enerliance CEO Scot Duncan will be part of a panel titled “Focus on Energy.” Scot and three other experts will examine and discuss real world examples that show the energy saving impact of smart building technologies.

On Thursday May 2nd from 1:30pm to 4:00pm, Scot and Enerliance President Ray Pustinger will host an interactive presentation about LOBOS technology and building optimization.

Ray and Scot will be talking about how technology enabled by Dynamic Commissioning creates new business opportunities for systems integrators and energy solutions providers. The session breaks down optimization into three key concepts:

 1 – Address the whole system

Each component of a large-scale comfort system is interconnected (chillers, compressors, condensers, pumps, air handlers, fans, coils and valves) and each of those components is driven by the need to provide occupant comfort. It is vital to address the system as a whole, with occupant comfort and energy efficiency as the simultaneous goal.

 2 – Apply new levels of intelligence

DDC (Direct Digital Controls) systems do an important job; however, the routines they execute are limited by technology and operating principles that are generations old.  Today’s IP based communication, open protocols and hyper-fast data processing speeds provide the ability to add sophisticated intelligence to your DDC, enabling dynamic operating strategies that were never before possible.

 3 – Challenge the norm

The laws of thermodynamics are constant, but today’s technology makes it possible to align all the technologies that used to compete; this results in improved occupant comfort and reduced energy waste.

Both the lecture and the panel will be full of great information, so if you’re going to be at the Haystack Connect Conference be sure to catch them.

See you there!



LOBOS potential to be revealed at DistribuTECH

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Join us at the DistribuTECH Conference and Exhibition in San Diego Jan. 29 to 31 where we will be releasing the results of a new study showing the dramatic potential of LOBOS to reduce energy consumption across the country.

We hired Green Per Square Foot of Chicago,Ill., last year to estimate the number and size of commercial buildings nationwide that could benefit from LOBOS technology.  The study identified 33 billion square feet of commercial building space that fit our criteria.

Then, we applied LOBOS performance data from 140 facilities totaling 18 million square feet of commercial office space. The results were astounding!

If LOBOS was installed in every compatible building in the country, it could reduce electricity consumption by 46,000 gigawatt hours annually. That equates to more than $5 billion in reduced operating costs.

In addition, we found that the LOBOS demand response system has the potential to provide 25 gigawatts of automated demand response power reduction when grid congestion is at its peak. That is equivalent to the electricity generated by 21 nuclear power plants.

Scot said, “LOBOS continues to help make the world greener — one building at a time.”

Stop by booth number 1219 to hear more about LOBOS and its energy saving potential.
