SAINT JOHN, NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA – August 4, 2017 – Charles Holleran, Vice President – Engineering for Shift Energy recently presented the company’s EOS technology and proven energy savings statistics at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories (LBNL). ‘Deployment of EOS Technology at AMALIE Arena’ highlighted positive improvements realized at the arena, home of the Tampa Bay Lightning, since EOS was installed in September 2016. Tampa Bay Sports and Entertainment, LLC (TBSE), which manages and operates the arena, cites an energy cost reduction of 14%, a consumption reduction of nearly 1,500,000 kWh, and demand (kW) cost reduction of 15% and 1,100 tons CO2 saved following the deployment of EOS.
EOS is a highly secure cloud-based software that works with existing building systems to reduce energy costs in commercial buildings. It works with building systems, including Building Automation Systems, to gather minute-by-minute operational data and store it in the cloud. EOS analyzes that data, along with weather, time of day pricing of electricity, occupancy and event schedules and uses adaptive machine learning to determine how to maximize everyone’s comfort while saving the most money. Energy costs are reduced and day-to-day operations simplified without giving anything up. This flexible smart building solution can deliver a significant financial impact in a short amount of time while reducing overall carbon footprint. EOS is the perfect solution to make a smart building smarter. Solutions are specifically designed to optimize energy usage in venues and arenas, healthcare facilities and commercial real estate properties.
Holleran notes, “Our EOS software has the potential to save 15-20% of the building’s energy and demand because we write back to the buildings, actioning potential energy improvements directly and immediately by writing to building systems. This is a great vehicle for model-predictive-control, adaptive control and modeling, and physical modeling.”
The presentation was attended by various members of the LBNL including, Mary Ann Piette, Scientific Division Director – Whole Building Systems Department, Commercial Building Systems Group, Demand Response Research Center; Jessica Granderson, Mechanical Staff Scientist/Engineer -Whole Building Systems Department, Commercial Building Systems Group; and Michael Wetter, Scientific Division Director – Whole Building Systems Department, Commercial Building Systems Group, Demand Response Research Center. Response to the presentation was positive. The Shift Energy team looks forward to working with the LBNL on future building efficiency improvement studies.
Shift Energy, a member of the Mariner Partners group of companies, has developed Energy Optimization Software (EOS) that makes smart buildings smarter by optimizing automation. EOS uses big data analytics, cloud computing and IoT resulting in improved comfort for building occupants, longer asset life, lower energy costs, better system autonomy and detection of defects for building owners and operators. Shift Energy worked with EllisDon on the AMALIE Arena project to deliver a reduction in GHG emissions and energy costs.
