The Environmental Defense Fund and Enerliance: Spreading the Word About HVAC-Based Auto-DR

Friday, May 23, 2014

It’s no secret that here at Enerliance we like talking commercial HVAC optimization. Give us five minutes and we’ll give you the rundown on LOBOS EE, ADR and FDD; we’ll tell you what platform it runs on (Niagara, of course); and we’ll fill your head with more industry-specific knowledge than you can shake a stick at. And while we love talking shop in a community of like-minded individuals, we also recognize the value of sharing what we’ve learned with people outside of our industry—people who want to know about real-time, business-friendly solutions to big problems such as global warming, grid strain and the future of U.S. energy.

That’s why we were so pleased with the opportunity to guest author a post on the Environmental Defense Fund’s (EDF) Energy Exchange Blog on the topic of HVAC-generated automated demand response in the commercial building sector. The EDF platform gives us an opportunity to share the environmental benefits of LOBOS with a wider audience—some of whom may have limited knowledge but a vested interest in the scope and capabilities of this industry-changing technology.

We enjoyed the guest blog process very much and think the article turned out great. We think you’ll enjoy it, too, and encourage you to head on over to the EDF site to check it out.

This post is the first we’ve written for the EDF, but we are no strangers to working with them in other capacities. For the last year, Enerliance team members have collaborated with EDF members Jamie Fine and John Finnegan through our partnership with the United States Green Building Council. Our efforts here involve refining the parameters of LEED Pilot Credit 8: Demand Response. So far, the experience has been great and we look forward to many more joint efforts.

It’s great working with such a well-informed, solutions-oriented organization. We appreciate the EDF’s support and the opportunity to speak on their platform.



Enerliance Accepts PLMA Spring Conference Award on Behalf of Kilroy Realty

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

One of our partners in sustainability recently received an award for their demand response efforts! And they requested Enerliance president Ray Pustinger to accept it on their behalf. How cool is that?

Kilroy Realty and its vice president of sustainability, Sara Neff, were recognized on April 15, 2014 at the PLMA Spring Conference in Denver, Colorado as recipients of one of seven 11th Annual PLMA Awards. These awards recognize leading energy utility demand response initiatives, and Kilroy Realty is receiving theirs for Outstanding Demand Response Customer. In 2013, Kilroy Realty installed and enrolled 1.6 MW of automated demand response capacity in the SCE service area across six buildings, totaling one million square feet.

We’re honored to receive this award on behalf of the team over at Kilroy, and it feels good to know that our LOBOS technology is helping them participate in the automated demand response programs so critical to Southern California’s grid stability. We look forward to expanding on Kilroy’s 2013 SCE projects and are preparing for additional 2014 demand response and energy efficiency projects, not just with SCE, but SDG&E and PG&E as well.

Sara Neff and her team at Kilroy are industry leaders, and we’re thrilled to support their efforts and the progress that results. Here’s a photo of Enerliance president Ray Pustinger with the chair of the PLMA awards committee and fellow award winners:
