DOE Initiative to Improve Building Energy Efficiency

11/11/2015 |

Data-driven program analyzes portfolio information

A new software program has been released by the DOE that will help cities and states do a better job of managing energy performance data for their buildings and find new opportunities for improvements that can boost efficiency. The Standard Energy Efficiency Data (SEED) Collaborative will create a three-year partnership of a selected group of cities and states that will receive assistance, participate in information sharing, and provide input on possible improvements to the DOE’s SEED Platform, one of the tools used for the Better Buildings Challenge.  

The open source software will enable cities, municipalities, and state to manage, combine, and analyze data for large groups of buildings, which is currently a time-consuming and expensive process for organizations with large portfolios. Additionally, the DOE hopes that the launch of the new tool will help incentivize private companies to develop products and services based on the SEED platform that can help utilities, building owners, and FMs better control efficiency in their portfolios.

Looking for ways to improve your building’s energy performance? Check out this guide to the Better Buildings Challenge to see if this efficiency program could be right for your facility.

Connectrac® wireways are the new standard for bringing power & communications cable management to all interior applications. Free yourself from core drilling!

Surpass State Energy Requirements with Dual-Cooling Data Center CRAC Technology

See how professionals like you are taking advantage of the highest performing precision cooling system for their computer rooms and data centers, and why Data Aire is fast-becoming the number one choice for facility managers and building owners looking to decrease their energy consumption. 

Data Aire understands how digital technology and data gravity is rapidly impacting and transforming businesses. That’s why they developed ultra-efficient cooling technology to support the most modern (and not-so-modern) data centers.  Learn how One Wilshire in Los Angeles, one of the most advanced carrier hotels today, is surpassing California's strict energy efficiency requirements with Data Aire’s purpose-built system, which provide full-economization for 260 days – almost 72% of the year. That’s a measurable savings! Furthermore, the projected PUE on an annual basis for a full load is at or below 1.2.
