Scientific Conservation Announces Revolutionary Energy Baselining Solution for $5 Billion Commercial Building Market

Scientific Conservation Inc., (SCI), a leading provider of energy efficiency solutions for the $5 billion commercial building market, today announced SCIenergy,™ a highly accurate energy measurement and optimization application for its SCIwatchAutomated Continuous Commissioning platform. SCIenergy delivers a breakthrough solution that accurately measures and predicts a facility’s energy use under a wide range of operating conditions to help determine whether or not the building is performing at optimal energy efficiency levels.

“The measurement of energy savings is problematic at best,” states Program Manager Jorge Moreno, Environmental & Building Technologies at Frost & Sullivan. “Relying on static building models developed by designers as a means of measuring efficiency is proving to be an issue because they simply aren’t accurate enough. Designers lack the foresight in terms of how a building will be operated once constructed. There must be a new understanding of how the myriad of operating variables dramatically affect energy use. SCIenergy represents an entirely new approach that overcomes the inaccuracy of conventional energy models by providing ongoing and highly accurate real-time assessment of a building’s systems performance.”

SCIenergy is based on a methodology that has been tested on numerous types of buildings including office, retail, institutional, industrial and healthcare facilities, each of which have unique operating conditions. In many cases, the accuracy of the projections of monthly energy use was as high as 99 percent. SCIenergy combines fuzzy logic and artificial intelligence neural network technologies to find relationships between complex operations variables and building usage patterns. All of this technology is completely transparent to facility operators.

SCIenergy provides the following benefits:

  • Accurate energy and greenhouse gas baselines with no on-site energy audits or complex facility modeling, using existing energy bills
  • Accurate measurement of energy savings and its associated greenhouse gas reduction
  • A proven methodology to create independently certified carbon credits

“Typical statistical models and building simulations are lucky to be within plus-or minus 15 percent,” said John Pitcher, COO and founder of Scientific Conservation. “SCIenergy on the other hand is achieving dramatic results by correlating predicted energy baselines within one-to-two percent of actual usage. As a result, we’re providing an energy savings methodology that is extremely well positioned to provide accurate measurements of carbon reduction and by extension, cap and trade of carbon credits.”

SCIenergy Beta Program

Scientific Conservation is currently signing up qualified prospects for its SCIenergy beta testing program. More information on how to participate is available at http://www.scientificconservation.com/scienergy.

In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker containers gain prominence. He explored these challenges and how to address them, while considering how containers will influence the direction of cloud computing.
