Enerliance CEO Participates in Department of Energy FDD Workshop at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Monday, June 3, 2013

Berkeley, CA –  Enerliance CEO Scot Duncan was invited to participate in a workshop hosted by the Department of Energy Building Technologies Program, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Navigant Consulting. The goal of the workshop was to get feedback from building intelligence and energy solutions thought leaders on the OpenEIS Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD) concept.

Scot, along with representatives from IBM, Trane, United Technology Research Center, The California State University System, Duke Realty and others attended the day-long workshop at LBNL at the end of February.

The industry experts gave feedback on the OpenEIS concept — an open, cloud-based platform — which would create a common protocol for performing fault detection and diagnosis in small (under 100,000 sq. ft.) commercial buildings. Undetected system faults are a major cause of energy waste in commercial facilities, and one of the more difficult energy efficiency areas to address cost-effectively in smaller facilities.

The idea is that a platform like OpenEIS could give smaller commercial buildings access to the same kind of analytics that LOBOS gives to larger (100,000+ sq. ft.) commercial buildings. Additionally, sharing data from hundreds, or even thousands, of similar buildings across the country could give the facilities community access to valuable data we don’t have today.

“I was humbled to be included in the talented group at the workshop and given the opportunity to collaborate,” said Scot. “It’s great that the DOE continues to encourage and support innovation in matters of energy efficiency and reducing energy waste.”

Watch Scot’s Haystack Connect Presentation

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

A few weeks ago at Haystack Connect, Enerliance CEO Scot Duncan was a speaker in one of the conference’s sessions titled Focus on Energy. For his part of the presentation, Scot talked about DCx (Dynamic Commissioning), and how it’s helped LOBOS to achieve significant energy savings. If you’re interested in the technical details behind how our LOBOS systems work, this video is a great place to start.

We’ve also made Scot’s slides from the presentation available to download as both a PDF or Powerpoint Presentation.

A big thanks to Eric Stromquist from ControlTrends.org for shooting, editing and publishing the video.
