BuildingIQ has announced the release of version 4.0 of its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to optimise energy use in commercial buildings.
The latest version builds upon the company’s award-winning Predictive Energy OptimizationTM software and offers streamlined analytics, increased visibility into savings and improved managed services – all protected by the security equivalent to that of Internet banking.
BuildingIQ saves users 10 to 25 per cent in HVAC energy costs with increased scores in LEED, Energy Star, NABERS and other sustainability measures.
BuildingIQ’s version 4.0 features a new intuitive interface and offers real-time transparency into energy operations.
Using variables such as weather forecasts, utility signals, building characteristics and occupant comfort, BuildingIQ makes real-time changes to building controls based on a customised thermal model.
The platform now displays predictive and retrospective data and allows users to easily view adjustments that were made to the operating system. Results can be accessed in a consolidated, standardised view regardless of which legacy systems are in a building.
BuildingIQ has also enhanced its managed services, offering to provide more support to building owners then ever before. Customers are provided around-the-clock access to BuildingIQ’s highly trained building engineering experts, who continuously observe and trend building performance to determine if other opportunities to save energy are available. Additionally, they can identify energy drains for a structure.
BuildingIQ CEO and president Michael Nark, said from boiler room to the boardroom the goal is to make the implementation of Predictive Energy Optimization software as straight forward and integrated as possible.
“BuildingIQ’s new enhancements provide more support and increased visibility into a building's operations and energy usage,” he said.
“We also eliminate the risk when choosing our solution by offering it on a subscription basis and guarantee the delivery of energy savings without upfront capital required. Users are essentially signing up for free cash flow.”
The cloud-based software embraces the latest security measures to protect customers' building management systems (BMS) and IT systems. For details, visit http://www.buildingiq.com/products/modules-and-enhancements/.
