BuildingIQ and Johnson Controls to offer Predictive Energy Optimization™ through Panoptix™ Platform

BuildingIQ, a leading energy management software company with a mission to redefine the way energy is managed in commercial buildings, today announced it has partnered with Johnson Controls to bring its applications onto the new Panoptix™ platform. Using Panoptix, Johnson Controls customers will be able to access BuildingIQ to automatically reduce energy consumption and costs while improving the operational efficiency of a building and facility managers.

BuildingIQ offers a unique, next generation service to automatically fine tune the building management system (BMS) based on weather forecasts, occupancy patterns and energy prices in order to optimize HVAC energy. The Panoptix Platform will provide cloud-based access to energy data and manage the interface to the BMS to streamline the implementation of BuildingIQ for customers across their portfolios. Customers will be able to purchase a monthly subscription to BuildingIQ through Panoptix as well.

BuildingIQ will be the first application on Panoptix to enable real-time control of the BMS in order to directly reduce energy use and peak loads.

“The Panoptix software development community provides the building data, tools and support to enable software companies such as BuildingIQ to reduce the time and complexity of deployment while helping them access a broader market of building owners and operators,” said Laura Farnham, vice president of building technology and service at Johnson Controls. “The BuildingIQ predictive energy optimization service adds great value to owners looking for the next generation of building energy efficiency.”

“We are excited to be working with Johnson Controls, a leader in our industry with an exciting vision for the future,” said Michael Zimmerman, CEO of BuildingIQ. “As a company dedicated to improving the way energy is managed in commercial buildings, we will continue to improve the value for our customers and partners by leveraging emerging platforms such as Panoptix and others like them.”

About Predictive Energy Optimization

The BuildingIQ system is the only energy management software platform that forecasts energy demand and automatically adjusts a building’s HVAC settings to continuously optimize energy use and peak loads. BuildingIQ works with existing building energy management systems and utility demand response systems. It incorporates weather forecasts, occupant comfort, utility prices and demand response signals into its optimization algorithms. BuildingIQ automatically reduces energy consumption, cost and emissions, while maintaining or improving occupant comfort.

About Panoptix

The Panoptix solution is a combination of software and services to help single building owners or managers of global enterprises improve the performance of their buildings, decrease energy use and operational costs, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It is driven by cloud-based apps that provide visibility into how every system, subsystem and device is functioning, and provides information to take actions to improve their performance. It works with any size building, any building management system; can be accessed by any computer, tablet or smartphone; and is supported with industry news, an online community and Johnson Controls Live Guide™ experts.
