How to Measure Energy Savings Performance

Building Fit - Performance & Verification

With rental income down for most asset types due to Covid-19, facility managers and owners have looked to reduce expenses as a way to maintain profitability and in many cases to stay afloat. Energy Intelligence Center ( through  its HVAC Optimization Solution offers a way for these owners and managers to stay in business and maintain profitability without the need to cut jobs and sacrifice in other ways. Their advanced and custom tailored OptikW Algorithmic Software is the technology that guarantees HVAC Energy savings of 15%-40% with zero upfront costs and no replacement of equipment. The Energy Intelligence Center optimizes the consumption of energy (kilowatts) for commercial real estate air conditioning and industrial refrigeration blast freezing systems. The software reduces energy expenses for commercial water and air-cooled systems, heat pumps, and process cooling systems. Ideal customers for OptikW are high cooling demand facilities such as breweries, hotels, hospitals, data centers, 24/7 facilities, and industrial refrigeration blast freezing facilities.

The payment options include paybacks within 2.5 years or licensing with monthly/quarterly payments, based on a guaranteed savings share performance structure. The later performance option includes a mutually agreed baseline with metering or metrics from the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP).

How do you score energy savings in HVAC Optimization? Most BMS & BAS systems installed since 2010 have archived historical kWh consumption. The performance team will collect the metered kWh data along with weather data from the same periods and find savings opportunities & make projections using scientific and mathematic formulas. Once those savings are found, the custom software will be implemented on site for testing purposes. If more verification is requested, the software can be turned off and on.

The Sustainable Tech Alliance (STA) is a growing group of companies that provide proven “clean” technology products and services to save energy and create a new generation of energy efficient and healthy buildings. The solutions are relevant for both new and existing facilities, and in many cases the implementations include zero upfront cost options.

The Sustainable Tech Alliance (STA) was formed to meet the needs of private sector business owners and government facility operators to reduce operating costs through energy intelligence and clean indoor air. In many cases, our alliance companies have worked collaboratively on projects or have referred business to each other when customers as for products or services beyond the immediate deliverables of any one member.


Provide customers with customized and comprehensive solutions that help them operate with less expenses, in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way.

STA members understand that measurement is often the key to management, and we support each other with best practices for measurement and verification (M&V) to set benchmarks and performance metrics.

Practice what you preach: Beyond the buildings that we optimize, we “walk the talk” when it comes to sustainable living. This Tesla is a recent 2020 purchase for our Executive Director who is adding the graphics to promote the Sustainable Tech Alliance. For 2021, and beyond Covid-19, we expect to dramatically expand the fleet to enable more in-person meetings and site visits with forward thinking facility managers.

If you seek to cost-effectively reduce operating expenses and provide safe indoor environments for your property occupants, Contact Us. Given our alliance members across the US, we can visit your property and at very least schedule a call or video conference during this unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic.
