Yardi Announces New LOBOS Install at the Seagram Building in New York

Thursday, September 24, 2015

Enerliance’s parent company, Yardi, announced today via an internationally distributed press release that they have entered into an agreement with RFR Realty, LLC to implement LOBOS technology at the Seagram Building, 375 Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan.

The Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson, and completed in 1958, is one of the most iconic structures in New York. Standing at 38 stories, the office tower is a city landmark and is considered to be a paragon of modernist architecture.

Looking to achieve 100% occupancy in your building? Attract more tenants with energy efficiency

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

Here on the Enerliance blog, we spend a good deal of time speaking to commercial building owners and portfolio managers about the financial benefits of central system upgrades and retrofits such as our LOBOS HVAC efficiency application. We talk about HVAC energy reductions of 30 percent or more; we talk about the millions of dollars and kilowatt-hours that LOBOS is saving our clients, and the various utility incentive programs that can fund building improvements and feasibility studies.

While the energy savings that LOBOS delivers is a key driver of upgrade projects, our clients have made it clear that nothing is more important than tenant comfort. This is why we have carefully designed LOBOS to optimize a building’s existing BAS to maintain comfort conditions in the most energy-efficient manner possible. The LOBOS Energy Efficiency (EE) application dramatically reduces day-to-day energy consumption while maximizing comfort. The LOBOS Automatic Demand Response (DR) module minimizes the impact to comfort during utility-initiated DR events. And this is crucial, because during the periods of excessive demand that threaten power grid stability, DR events can result in significant power curtailment. (more…)

Energy Efficiency Spotlight: New York City

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

In May 2015, the American Council for An Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) announced the results of its Biennial Energy Efficiency Scorecard ranking the most energy-efficient cities in the United States. The ranking accounted for factors including government operations, community initiatives, buildings, utilities and transportation. The most energy-efficient city, according to their scorecard, is Boston, with New York City coming in at a close second.

Enerliance’s National Sales Director Writes Article for Automated Buildings, February Edition

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

This month, be sure to head on over to the Automated Buildings website to read, Mark Boliaris’s special guest article on commercial HVAC optimization technology. The article explores the benefits of HVAC optimization, and the ways in which this type of upgrade can help building owners achieve their sustainability goals, save on energy costs and improve occupant comfort.

The article highlights some of LOBOS’s most important attributes including its ability to optimize an HVAC system’s operation to such a degree that commercial building owners can potentially save millions in year over year energy costs. The article also highlights the ways in which LOBOS’s 24/7 minute by minute calibration, oversight and fault detection can help to make control systems and air handler upgrade investments result in a higher level of efficiency than they could ever achieve on their own.

Enerliance in the News

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

The list of successful LOBOS installations, including Kilroy Airport Center, Constellation Place and the San Diego Convention Center, keeps growing, and the more our technology is implemented for efficiency, fault detection and diagnostics, and automated demand response, the more people in the media are beginning to sit up and take notice.

At the end of November, Business Energy Magazine published an article to their website titled, “The Ways of Warehouses and Other Large Facilities: Assessing industrial and commercial spaces for efficiency upgrades.” The article spotlighted many of the ways in which buildings are becoming more efficient from prismatic lighting, to removable pipe insulation blankets, to, of course, LOBOS real time HVAC energy management.

New Video Explains LOBOS Technology for Automated Buildings

Monday, September 29, 2014

Because LOBOS is such a new technology, in such a niche field, its operations and benefits can be difficult to comprehend. Often, when talking about LOBOS, we use industry-specific terminology, and sometimes explanations can raise more questions than they answer. But LOBOS is so revolutionary and so amazing that we want everyone along the chain of impact to know about it—from the automated buildings systems integrator right down to the office worker who can now enjoy a consistently comfortable building temperature.

That’s why, instead of more talk about how great LOBOS is—how it makes participation in demand response programs a breeze; how it’s an energy efficiency must-have for all well-designed automated buildings; how it actually, in many instances, reduces comfort calls while saving energy and money—we decided to make a video. Because, we get it, this is complicated stuff and sometimes you need a good visual to truly understand a new technology and how you can benefit from it.

Big Changes and Continued Growth for Enerliance

Thursday, August 14, 2014

If you’ve been following the Enerliance story at all, you know that we’ve been doing a lot of growing in the past couple of years. Our patented LOBOS technology is installed in more buildings in more states than ever before. Our recent acquisition by Yardi has positioned us as a national energy market player, and there is just no stopping that ticker on our home page counting the kWh saved, thanks not only to LOBOS, but to the team effort of a company on a mission.

So it should come as no surprise that we’re reporting another round of big changes devised to expand Enerliance’s reach and position us for the next stage in our company’s development.

Constellation Place: Yet Another LOBOS Success Story

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

JMB Realty Corp., the management behind Constellation Place, has known from day one the importance of efficiency in a well-operated building. Constellation Place utilizes solar panels and fuel cells, high efficiency lighting and plumbing, and was the first in Los Angeles to attain LEED EB status. Currently, Constellation Place is LEED EB O&M Gold certified and is designated as a green business by Los Angeles and the State of California. That being said, it will come as no surprise to hear that in 2013, management decided to upgrade their already ultra-efficient EMS system with a LOBOS EE installation. Dig into this blog, and it will come as no surprise to hear that the installation has resulted in an annual energy use reduction of 1.1 million kilowatt hours.

In geekspeak, this translates into a central plant daytime load that now runs at 0.34 to 0.65 kilowatts per ton on most days, compared to 0.80 to more than 1.00 kilowatts per ton prior to LOBOS, an average reduction of 30-50 percent. The smaller nighttime loads have been seeing consistent energy efficiency improvements of 50 percent or more.

LOBOS Comfort Focus ADR

Comfort-Focused ADR

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Just about anyone in the HVAC or commercial property management industry familiar with LOBOS by Enerliance, a Yardi company, can attest to the fact that the LOBOS software is amazing. Phrases such as “game-changing,” “transformative,” and “without equal” are frequently bandied about when the conversation turns to describing the LOBOS platform. As an optimizer for overall energy efficiency, a facilitator of comfort-focused automated demand response participation, and/or a provider of fault detection and diagnostics, there is simply no other comparable technology on the market today. Because while there are competitive products, there is no other HVAC optimizer that does the job with such elegant practicality.

Simply put, LOBOS puts tenant comfort first. In fact, it operates under such stealth conditions that, unless you were present at the installation, odds are you’d never even know it was there—unless, of course, your building was uncomfortably hot or cold before LOBOS, in which case, you’d know there was a change to the system, because your level of comfort improved.
