About the Smart Energy Analytics Campaign

Energy Management and Information Systems (EMIS) are a cost-effective, yet underutilized "High Impact Technology". These technologies are underutilized in today’s buildings, yet offer owners and operators significant savings on their utility bills, as operational improvements. In addition to EMIS, the U.S. Department of Energy has identified Cold Climate Heat Pumps, LED Troffers with Controls, and Alternative Refrigerants as High Impact Technologies.

Through the Smart Energy Analytics Campaign, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Alliance, with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and other key organizers, will work with industry to encourage and track adoption of EMIS technology used with monitoring-based commissioning (MBCx) and other energy management processes in the commercial buildings sector.
