Just this month, concept3D announced the general availability of its long-awaited simuwatt® Energy Auditor product, designed to lower the cost and improve the accuracy of energy audits for commercial buildings.
Energy Exchange will take place August 11-13 in Phoenix, Arizona and will feature Building on the tradition of GovEnergy, the 2015 Energy Exchange in Phoenix, Arizona, will provide training to energy managers and sustainability professionals who are working to improve facility performance, advance the use of renewable energy, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions at federal sites.
In today’s energy environment, there is an increasing emphasis on commercial building energy audits necessary to achieve aggressive federal, state and local energy efficiency goals and mandates. Ferro’s August 11 presentation, “The Next Generation of Facility Energy Audit Tools,” will be an exploration of tools for building data collection to enable energy auditors to deliver cost-effective, comprehensive audits at the required scale to meet these goals. Ferro, who joined the team at simuwatt in June 2014, has particular insight into the market demands, and feature sets for these tools.
simuwatt® Energy Auditor is an innovative cloud-based solution leveraging both web and iPad interfaces to standardize energy audit data collection, collaborate with multi-auditor teams, and export analysis-ready spreadsheets. Energy Auditor makes the audit lifecycle process more effective with integrated photo and video documentation, offline support, revision history tracking, and allows teams to merge data collected into a single standardized output.
Energy Auditor is rooted in development with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). In a recent site visit, three NREL auditors leveraged simuwatt to survey three commercial buildings in a single day by dividing data collection into mechanical, lighting/plug loads and water. Using built-in collaboration tools these surveys, photos and videos were rapidly combined into a single project export to a spreadsheet for analysis.
