Technology Demonstration and Deployment

Energy management and information systems icon

Technology demonstration and validation projects identify and demonstrate cost-effective energy management technologies in commercial buildings.

The Smart Energy Analytics Campaign

Now completed, the Smart Energy Analytics Campaign [] participants included 104 commercial organizations across the United States, totaling 567 million square feet of gross floor area and more than 6,500 buildings. The data collected on EMIS in the final report represents the most comprehensive dataset assembled on analytics installation and use. A large number of resources, webinars, business case and best practice guidance documents were developed for organizations adopting EMIS and are found on the Better Building Alliance Campaign Toolkit. 

Better Buildings Alliance EMIS Project Team

Working with a the project team comprised of Better Building partners, commercial building owners, and service providers, Berkeley Lab researchers develop tools and resources [emis/better-buildings-alliance-emis-rd-team] to help address questions on the distinguishing factors and attributes of EMIS.

Field Validation of Building IQ Technology

Tested in a five building cohort, this study was a field validation and verification of the BuildingIQ's Predictive Energy Optimization (PEO) technology. PEO technology is describes as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that optimizes commercial building HVAC control for system efficiency, occupant comfort, and cost.

Data-Driven and Physics Model-Based Tool for Energy Efficiency in Central Cooling Plants

In a field demonstration, Berkeley Lab researchers verify the feasibility of employing a model-based approach to central plant operation and diagnostics at U.S. Department of Defense facilities.

EMIS Field Evaluation Protocol

The EMIS Field Validation Protocol was developed to provide a standardized approach to assessing the energy and non-energy benefits of Energy Management and Information Systems (EMIS).
