Quantifying hidden savings without setting foot in the building.

The problem.

  • Energy consumption is excessive: 39% of US energy attributed to buildings
  • Most buildings are “dumb” with limited sensors and controls
  • Sub-metering, modeling, sensing, building management systems, physical audits are too costly and cumbersome
  • The industry needs to gain virtual insight to savings

Our Solution.

Without setting foot on site or the burden of lengthy questionnaires
Diagnostics

Quantify building characteristics and operations. How does my building perform?

Prognostics

Energy and cost savings opportunities.
How much will I save if I change the… ?

Comparisons

Population comparisons. How do I compare to other like buildings?

Screening

Building portfolio screening. Which buildings are best positioned for savings?

Case Studies

1

Kent State University

Roof and window replacement. EDIFES prediction of savings: $1,559 (6 month period). Actual savings achieved: $1,771 (6 month period). Roof replacement: R-value increase from 16 to 30Window replacement: R-value increase from 1 to 2

2

Starbucks

HVAC Reschedule. EDIFES prediction of savings: $1,150 (6 month period). Actual savings achieved: $1,096 (6 month period). Adjusted HVAC schedule to align with store hours, reducing HVAC run time by 15 hours per week.
