BuildingIQ has been recognized for its Predictive Energy Optimization software solution for commercial buildings in Groom Energy’s recent report “2013 Enterprise Smart Grid and a Buyers Guide for Energy Management Software and Technologies”.

BuildingIQ’s software-as-a-service solution was selected from a list of more than 200 energy management vendors not only for its ability to reduce HVAC energy costs by as much as 25 percent but also because it provides a quick return on investment.  A BuildingIQ solution turns existing buildings into Smart Grid-enabled buildings with minimal capital expenditure.

According to Groom Energy’s new report, “18 percent of large companies surveyed plan to invest in energy management software in 2013.”  BuildingIQ’s cloud-based software easily integrates into a facility’s building management system (BES) in order to optimize energy consumption while reducing operating burden.  Adjustments are automatically made to building controls in real-time based on variables, such as weather forecasts, utility tariffs, demand response events, building characteristics and occupant comfort.  BuildingIQ’s solution eliminates major hurdles that corporate energy, facility and sustainability managers face when trying to meet sustainability goals.

“The commercial building market is a demanding and rapidly evolving sector,” said Michael Zimmerman, CEO of BuildingIQ.  “To be selected as a top vendor by Groom Energy is a testament to our ability to meet the market’s needs with integrated energy efficiency and demand response solution that minimizes financial investment and reduces the strain many facility managers face when implementing these initiatives.  We look forward to further pushing industry standards in order to reach new levels of customer satisfaction worldwide.”

“We are impressed with the cost savings driven by the BuildingIQ products,” said Paul Baier, Vice President of Research and Sustainability Consulting, Groom Energy Solutions.  “They are able to reduce operating costs through visibility and control of HVAC load for large commercial buildings.  Owners and operators should consider BuildingIQ when looking for cost saving options.”
