“KGS Buildings makes it possible to convert data into an abundance of actionable information about building performance,” said Jay Nardone, vice-president of Field Services, Buildings Division of Schneider Electric. “With this building technology software as another element of our energy management solutions and services, we give customers the confidence to make fact-based decisions for improving energy use, operational efficiency, comfort, and financial performance throughout their building’s life cycle.”
KGS’ flagship software, Clockworks, delivers energy and cost savings by utilizing automated analytic libraries to produce prioritized energy efficiency and maintenance actions for facility managers, operators and service providers. With the mapping of specific building sequences and engineering parameters, the diagnostic algorithms are tailored to individual buildings and their unique system configurations through mass customization.
“Many people are passionate about saving energy in buildings, but they often lack the critical information needed to convert their intentions into action,” said Nick Gayeski, Ph.D., a partner and co-founder of KGS Buildings LLC. “Working with Schneider Electric, we are streamlining the energy savings process. This new generation of technologies automates the delivery of valuable building information to ensure services and repairs are focused on the right issues.”
