a leading energy management software company, and SkyFoundry, owner of
SkySpark analytics software, today announce the integration of their
technologies to identify and create energy savings for the Mount
Pleasant Shopping Centre in Queensland, Australia.
BuildingIQ's predictive energy optimization software, which leverages
variables such as occupant comfort, utility signals, weather forecasts,
and building characteristics, can now tap into SkySpark's real-time
metering data. The additional source of data allows BuildingIQ's
software to create a more advanced thermal model of the shopping center
and make automatic adjustments in order to maximize energy efficiency
and reduce operating costs.
The use of BuildingIQ's technology has allowed CFS Retail Property Trust
Group (CFX), which manages Mount Pleasant Shopping Centre on behalf of
one of its wholesale funds, to optimize the performance of its asset and
create a continuous, long-term return on a sustainable investment. The
decision to incorporate BuildingIQ's software came with little risk. It
is used on a subscription basis, requiring no upfront capital.
"BuildingIQ and SkyFoundry's software combined to seamlessly integrate
into our property's existing building management system. The new
automated approach needs minimal input from the facility's staff,
freeing them up to handle other labor intensive tasks," says Scott
Horsnell of CFX. "We are pleased with the energy efficiency and savings
we've achieved working with these two innovative technologies."
"BuildingIQ's solution is like an energy efficient cruise control for
buildings," said Michael Nark, president and CEO of BuildingIQ. "Through
continuous modeling and analysis of the data that is collected from
SkySpark, the system is able to make real-time adjustments to Mount
Pleasant Shopping Centre's heating and cooling operations that create
verified energy savings. The simple installation process and ability to
utilize existing infrastructure makes it a great solution for retail,
office and really any type of space."
