Lucid launched Connected Cities, a program that Lucid says will connect 100 US cities to BuildingOS over the next three years. The program, born out of Lucid’s commitment to action to the Clinton Global Initiative, is being anchored by the City of Orlando, Florida, and the City of Santa Cruz, California.
Lucid has partnered with Dell to provide Internet of Things to facilitate implementation processes.
Participating cities will receive access to Lucid’s BuildingOS building management platform to centralize energy and water data for all city buildings. Cities will also receive access to Lucid’s new ENERGY STAR application for BuildingOS, which automates ENERGY STAR benchmarking and disclosure for all buildings, as well as Bill Trends, an application that automatically collects and analyzes all utility bill data.
Bolstering the Connected Cities offering is the Connected Cities Network of experts in city resource efficiency. The network fosters collaboration between cities to share scalable tactics and creates network effect for all city stakeholders to collectively yield significant energy savings.
