GSA Evaluates BuildingIQ Software at 2 Locations

September 23, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

BuildingIQ Energy ManageBuildingIQ says its Predictive Energy Optimization software has been chosen by the US General Services Administration (GSA) for its Green Proving Ground Program, which aims to help government buildings move one step closer to net-zero-energy classification.

GSA will implement BuildingIQ’s software, through the Green Proving Ground Program, at its Jacksonville, Fla., and Dayton, Ohio, host sites to evaluate the technology in a real-world context. For each building the software will automatically create a customized thermal model that can predict energy consumption, cost and comfort based on building characteristics, weather forecasts, energy pricing, tariffs, and demand response signals. The software will minimize both peak and ongoing energy consumption in these buildings by making real-time adjustments to building controls.

Savings results from BuildingIQ’s energy management platform will be documented and published in project reports outlining the software’s performance during the tenure of the program. The GSA is working with the Department of Energy’s Commercial Buildings Integration program to use these results to increase market uptake of technologies that prove to have a high impact through the Green Proving Ground Program.
