Recommended Sequence of Technology Integration

Engaging with BuildingFit™ is a recommendation and not a requirement for our optimization. Many Building Management Systems (BMS) and Building Automation Systems (BAS) capture active energy consumption of Chiller Plants and HVAC equipment to the hour, and in some cases they archive historical consumption data for a trailing year or more. Since amps x volts x power factor = watts, we can determine the kW consumption and normalize it to weather conditions. Building Fit makes our job easier and serves as a third party to give customers confidence in the performance compensation of our work.
CP = Chiller Plant (multiple equipment types)
BMS = Building Management Systems or BAS, Building Automation Systems (multiple providers
M&V = Measurement and Verification with Data Capture and Analytics (Building Fit)
ECM = Energy Conservation Measures – Optimizing Kilowatts with algorithmic software (OptikW)

BuildingFit™ is a Fault Detection & Diagnostics (FDD), analytics and visualization platform that identifies opportunities, to make buildings more energy efficient, reliable, comfortable, and safe. Engineered for large quantities of data from disparate sources such as building automation systems (BAS) and smart IoT devices, BuildingFit™ insights are delivered through analytics, Key Performance Indicators (KPI), automated reports, and interactive dashboards that help users prioritize daily operations, minimize energy waste and reduce costs.

What makes OptikW different?

We focus on ambient conditions!… and our software is tailored to the existing equipment specifications.

Guaranteed Savings: The dynamic and proven approach enables OptikW to guarantee the savings, with low upfront costs. The upfront cost is typically a percentage of the year-one estimated savings, and it is variable based on the complexity and data accessibility of the existing HVAC system.
