Ctrl+e Unveils Building Intelligence and Energy Management Platform
NEW YORK, Feb. 3, 2023 — Ctrl+e, an innovative building intelligence and energy management company, today unveiled its transformative solution to one of the largest costs and environmental challenges commercial building owners face today: energy waste.
Ctrl+e’s revolutionary building intelligence & energy management platform modernizes the legacy infrastructure of any commercial building and unlocks massive savings. By providing real-time visibility and control over a building’s devices and energy consumption, the platform empowers building owners to effortlessly adapt and optimize energy usage, reduce building expenses, eliminate carbon emissions and unlock meaningful insights into any building’s health and safety.
“Today’s commercial buildings generate troves of untapped data just waiting to be utilized. It’s a massive opportunity for building owners to reduce costs and unlock tax incentives and rebates, all while supporting a greener future,” said Charles Wolofsky, Co-founder & CEO of Ctrl+e. “By taking control of energy, we control costs.”
Carbon emissions in buildings are directly related and are the byproduct of energy consumption.
On average, commercial buildings waste 30% or more of the energy they consume, incurring significant costs to property owners. Existing solutions are too expensive for buildings under 50,000 sq. ft. – which account for more than 90% of all commercial buildings in the US.
“By enacting Local Law 97, NYC is among the first municipalities to mandate energy conservation and carbon emission reductions by building owners, and we expect this trend to grow nationwide,” added Wolofsky. “This law heavily penalizes and fines building owners for emissions above a set threshold, compelling them to adopt energy efficient solutions.”
Ctrl+e’s solutions are more affordable, simple to integrate and provide immediate savings to building owners. Using powerful wireless IoT, cloud-based and AI-driven technology, Ctrl+e’s platform can improve building health and the energy consumption of HVAC, water and boiler systems; lighting; on-site fuel cells; electrical grid power; and solar panels. In addition, Ctrl+e enables buildings to become grid interactive and become eligible to participate in demand-response incentive programs.
