By Megan Hoegler
WATERLOO, Ont.— eleven-x and SimpTek have partnered to create Building360, a wireless real-time energy performance monitoring solution.
Designed for both public-sector and commercial use, Building360 is user-friendly and cost-efficient. It will wirelessly monitor energy consumption and demand in real-time, use built-in analytics capabilities to identify energy-saving opportunities and measure and verify the impact of all actions taken.
The partnership combines eleven-x’s wireless LoRaWAN™ connectivity and real-time data collection capabilities with SimpTek’s cloud-hosted energy management software. The result is a secure and cost-effective wireless data access platform that deploys quickly and can be used by facility managers even if they are not energy experts. The SimpTek platform tracks current usage against historical and benchmark data and targets areas for improvement. The solution provides a web-based dashboard that allows customers to see their current energy usage and enables them to connect with “virtual” energy advisors for possible energy conservation measures.
The Building360 solution is capable of generating energy savings between 5 per cent and 10 per cent through no/low cost behavioural changes. Reporting features help facility managers stay within compliance guidelines such as Ontario Regulation 507/18.
“The powerful potential of this partnership is that it seamlessly combines our wireless, real-time data collection solution with a best-in-class energy management platform, allowing energy-saving opportunities to be identified cost-effectively, and acted upon quickly and efficiently,” said Dan Mathers, president and CEO of eleven-x, in a release. “We are proud to partner with SimpTek in order to offer a solution that has the ability to deliver such immediate and impactful results.”
The Building360 energy monitoring platform is currently available with initiatives already deployed.
