Glenborough Deploys Energy Management Platform Across Building Portfolio
Real estate investment and management company Glenborough says it will deploy EnerNOC’s EfficiencySmart Insight as its enterprise energy management platform across its portfolio of commercial properties in California, New Jersey, Colorado and Maryland.
Glenborough, an EnerNOC demand response customer since mid-2011, has already deployed EnerNOC’s DemandSmart software. The addition of EfficiencySmart Insight software will allow Glenborough to better use energy data already being gathered through DemandSmart.
While Glenborough can currently view its energy use through the DemandSmart portal, the addition of EfficiencySmart will allow it to use analytics and proprietary diagnostic tools, and identify additional savings opportunities.
EfficiencySmart Insight will collect energy data from each building in Glenborough’s portfolio and generate recommendations, and a prioritized list of the highest impact energy savings opportunities. This will allow the firm to identify the highest payback opportunities across its portfolio, says Carlos Santamaria, Glenborough’s vice president of engineering services.
Santamaria says Glenborough is positioning its buildings to be “smart-grid prepared” so they can maximize savings through current and future utility incentive programs.
Glenborough has been named an Energy Star top performer for two years in a row, and has accepted the Building Owners & Managers Association’s (BOMA) 7-Point Challenge to improve energy performance and pursue a portfolio-wide 30 percent energy usage reduction.
The University of Vermont has also deployed EnerNOC’s EfficiencySmart Insight application at five large campus facilities, and both Massachusetts and Connecticut have signed deals with the company to use its EfficiencySmart energy-efficiency system.
Last month, commercial real estate company Cassidy Turley inked a national services agreement with Mach Energy to use its Mach Asset Manager software to save electricity in commercial buildings across Cassidy Turley’s 455-million-square-foot property management portfolio.
Rocky Mountain Institute is currently studying how big companies can apply energy efficiency retrofits across their entire building portfolios, at scale. As of late November, only AT&T and The Exchange had snagged two of the six available research slots being offered by RMI’s Portfolio Energy RetroFit Challenge.
