Predictive Control – BuildingIQ

Predictive Control

24/7 optimized control, in-built measurement & verification, and demand response uniquely tailored to your building. With the addition of forward looking models, buildings can be continually, intelligently optimized to stay one-step ahead of high costs while keeping tenants comfortable.

Demand Response

For automated managed energy curtailment programs.

BuildingIQ's automated demand response service enables owner/operators to participate, and take full benefit from, utility driven demand response programs simply, easily, repeatedly, and measurably. Demand Response is akin to a specialized form of Predictive Energy Optimization™ (PEO), but instead of an energy cost driven optimization paradigm, Demand Response

achieves event goals through a more aggressive time-based curtailment strategy that still seeks to optimize comfort. Unlike other DR solutions, BuildingIQ's Demand Response automatically controls the BMS down to the zone- leveraging learning models for the building's thermal behavior, BMS capabilities, and tenant comfort.

Participate in utility Demand Response incentive programs through automated DR-event operations without operator intervention

Demand Response is fully autonomous AND highly configurable to occupant needs

Participate in utility Demand Response incentive programs through automated DR-event operations without operator intervention or customize your event with the ability to opt out completely or on a zone-by-zone basis before or during an event.

With BuildingIQ's Demand Response You Get:

Automatic and intelligent creation and execution of control strategies before, during, and after the event

Adherence to occupant comfort commitments

Autonomous response to OpenADR calls

Flexible manual override by building or zone

The underlying 5i Platform's sophisticated Automated Measurement & Verification capabilities can be configured to measure demand reduction using agreed upon methodologies with the utility.

Automated Measurement & Verification

For repeatable, utility-grade M&V of initiatives at lower cost and higher accuracy.

BuildingIQ has shifted the paradigm of Measurement & Verification (M&V) to the cloud. Our solution automates much of the M&V process while providing the necessary transparency for verification and compliance with the International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol (IPMVP). By leveraging our real-time data collection, data science expertise, and powerful cloud computing, BuildingIQ's Automated M&V (AM&V) is the first true software-only solution that provides utility-grade reliability, repeatability, and scalability.

Our AM&V supports both Retrofit Isolation (Option B) and Whole Facility (Option C). AM&V deploys once–for any number of energy management programs - avoiding cost and complexity in addition to accelerating program velocity. BuildingIQ AM&V greatly enhances savings resolution while dramatically lowering the margin of error with automatic hourly calculation capabilities.


Predictive Energy Optimization™

For continual, learning, closed-loop optimized control of any HVAC system.

Predictive Energy Optimization™ (PEO) is BuildingIQ's premier service. PEO leverages a responsive and well maintained HVAC system - so is often the service provided after Smart Tune re-commissioning has been completed. PEO improves the energy efficiency of commercial, public, or academic buildings regardless of BMS. Running as a software-as-service (SaaS), PEO optimizes around system efficiency, occupancy comfort, and lowest cost. Energy reductions in HVAC consumption in the range of 10-25% are typical, with reductions climbing to as high as 40% during operational peaks.

The service utilizes the full capabilities of the 5i platform, learning from and adapting to the building and BMS over time as it automatically fine-tunes temperature and pressure set points at the air handler or zone. PEO automatically and continuously obtains data on the local weather forecast, the occupancy for the building, energy prices, and tariffs. Based on those inputs, it runs thousands of simulations to arrive at the most efficient HVAC operating strategy for the next 12 hours. BuildingIQ's network operations center maintains oversight of the data for 24/7 anomaly detection, data analysis, and diagnosis to assist on-site facility teams.
