Realcomm Advisory Blog Is Latest to Spotlight Benefits of LOBOS

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

We are ubiquitous! Well, not really, but we’re moving closer, because when it comes to getting the word out about LOBOS, it’s been a busy couple of months. In late April, we were referenced in an article regarding demand response on the Distributed Energy website. In May, our VP, John Gruss, authored a guest blog post on the Environmental Defense Fund website, and the article was then picked up by the online publication, Energy Efficiency Markets. And on May 29, a commercial energy management research and event company, Realcomm Conference Group, LLC, published on their website an article written by Enerliance President and Yardi Director of Business Development Ray Pustinger. The article provides an overview of the energy efficiency movement within the commercial building sector, and explores how changes resulting from evolving energy procurement methods affect the grid and how these changes relate to trends in building intelligence.

Ray explains how holistic building management is the way of the future, citing building intelligence company Yardi’s recent acquisition of Enerliance and the patented LOBOS software. In Ray’s words:

“Enerliance’s recent acquisition by Yardi represents the next quantum leap in the intelligent management of commercial building energy consumption. The deal promotes automated system optimization by extending Yardi’s suite of front office and back office solutions—which include utility billing, energy management, business intelligence and regulatory compliance—to controlling the very physical infrastructure of a building. Commercial property management clients will be able to save money and increase efficiency by leveraging automated system optimization and system-level analytics with their commercial property management software. This combination of automated system optimization, system-level analytics and business intelligence is unprecedented in the commercial real estate industry.”

LOBOS has the potential to make huge strides toward higher levels of efficiency and comprehensive intelligence in the commercial building sector, but it can’t happen if nobody knows about us. That’s why we’re not ashamed to say we love all the attention we’ve been getting of late, and we want to say a big heartfelt thank you to all the publications that provide us with an opportunity to share information about LOBOS with the world.

IFMA Recognizes LOBOS Project for Going “Beyond the Box”

Monday, June 2, 2014

COFAXWhile it’s true that hard work is its own reward, a little public recognition certainly doesn’t hurt. And though we aren’t in the energy efficiency business for trophies and top honors and accolades and all that stuff, we do love it when our innovative LOBOS software is recognized for its truly revolutionary capabilities. So we’re jumping up on our soapbox, yet again, to let the world know that another building automation system upgrade featuring LOBOS software has won an award.

This time, the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) has bestowed its Colorado Facilities (COFAX) Leading Edge Elements Award on the USAA Mountain States Regional Administrative Headquarters and their building automation system upgrade featuring LOBOS EE. The award recognizes a “project that implements ‘Beyond the Box’ concept or design in an effort to incorporate innovative concepts … [and] demonstrates a new way to utilize an existing facility … building systems or technology.” The systems integrator in charge of the project was LONG Building Technologies out of Littleton, Colorado, and the site is a three-building, 500,000-square-foot campus in Colorado Springs.

The COFAX Awards, presented at a gala on Saturday, April 12, 2014, are meant to recognize outstanding achievement and efforts toward efficiency and sustainability within the facilities management profession. The award is for facilities managers and vendors who contribute to this effort, and the facilities professionals at the USAA building and LONG definitely fit the bill. Their collaborative effort and their decision to include LOBOS EE in their repertoire of efficiency upgrades are slated to generate more than one million kWh in annual energy savings.

“LONG Building Technologies is thrilled to see the USAA project get the recognition it deserves,” said LONG sales engineer Bob Cleaver. “We are constantly seeking out new technology that will help our clients achieve their efficiency goals, and the inclusion of LOBOS EE in the USAA systems upgrade portfolio made all the difference. We are happy that the client tried this new technology and that it worked so well. To be recognized in the Leading Edge Elements category by such an influential group is a huge honor and we couldn’t be more proud.”
