NEW YORK–(COMMERCIAL THREAD) – utiliVisor, a leader in utility sub-metering and facility optimization, today announced that it has been selected as a qualified supplier for the Real-Time Energy Management + Tenants (RTEM + Tenants) program. New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
Funded through New York State Systems Employee Benefits, the goal of the $ 25 million RTEM + Tenants program is to support the implementation and use of home management systems and services. ‘energy to reduce energy consumption in commercial office buildings, including in tenant spaces. A 2016 inventory of New York City’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions indicated that commercial buildings are responsible for 39% of the city’s total GHG emissions. Therefore, commercial office tenants are essential in reducing a building’s overall energy demand and emissions.
Part of the next generation of smart building technology, RTEM systems use meters, sensors and controls to collect and monitor a building’s energy performance data over time. The collected data can then be used to detect abnormal power consumption, help optimize equipment performance, and minimize maintenance time and expense.
utiliVisor has been a NYSERDA Approved RTEM Systems and Services Provider since 2016 and is proud to have been selected as one of the premier vendors of the new RTEM + Tenant Program. “Building owners don’t have to sacrifice comfort or tenant requirements to improve energy efficiency,” said Tim Angerame, chief operating officer of utilVisor. “We analyze data from an RTEM system at a high, granular level to identify inefficiencies and defective equipment. From this analysis, we make concrete recommendations that improve energy performance, educate tenants about their carbon footprint and avoid unnecessary costs.
Tenants’ education and behavior change strategies are integral parts of effective energy management programs. Recently, utiliVisor met with a tenant of a client, a company with approximately 150,000 square feet of office space in Manhattan. Leveraging the existing sub-meter network and existing billing platform, the utiliVisor operations center analyzed tenant RTEM data to determine energy / costs for HVAC, lighting and heating. associated socket. After discussion with the tenant, the HVAC hours were adjusted to reflect the actual hours of the business, rather than the 24/7 schedule that had been assumed. These changes have identified savings of approximately 151,000 kWh, or cost savings for the tenant of over $ 30,000 per year.
NYSERDA’s RTEM + Tenant program offers up to 33% cost sharing for RTEM system implementation and services for up to three years. For a property to be eligible, its buildings must have multiple tenants, and the RTEM system must monitor at least 75% of the building’s total energy use, including tenant charges.
“In our experience, owners and operators alike derive great value from participating in RTEM systems and services, because monitoring saves real savings. And thanks to the incentives provided by NYSERDA, building owners don’t have to pay the full price of the system or wait to receive discounts, ”Angerame said.
