Kerry, Inc. 2018 New Installation of FDD in a Single Site Fault Detection and Diagnosis Systems (FDD)

In the past year, Kerry, Inc. has spearheaded implementation of FDD software at their 320,000 sq ft building. They’ve used the building analytics to show savings in almost real time instead of waiting for every energy bill.  Even though they haven’t used the analytics for very long, FDD have been helpful in directing them toward hidden opportunities with their mechanical systems. The Smart Energy Analytics Campaign and the US Department of Energy congratulate Kerry, Inc for their promising implementation.

Stanford University Residence and Dining Enterprises 2018 New Installation of EIS in a Portfolio Energy Information Systems (EIS)

When Stanford’s Sustainability and Utilities Manager came to Stanford, there was no utility tracking. The manager saw the opportunity to change this by adding an Energy Information System, and now 40 staff members who are building/dining managers that have never seen energy use/water/waste data before are being trained on its use. The Smart Energy Analytics Campaign and the US Department of Energy congratulate Stanford  for a great start to using EIS to help them successfully manage their energy use.  

The Franklin 2018 Energy Performance in a Single Site Energy Information Systems (EIS), Fault Detection and Diagnosis Systems (FDD)

The Franklin, a multi-tenant office building owned by Tishman Speyer received national recognition from the U.S. Department of Energy for energy performance in a single site. Through a multi-year process and supported by MBCx service provider Sieben Energy Associates, The Franklin integrated fault detection and diagnostics (FDD) software that helped them drive down whole building energy use by 9%. 

University of Iowa 2018 Best Practice in the Use of FDD Fault Detection and Diagnosis Systems (FDD)

University of Iowa received national recognition from the U.S. Department of Energy for Best Practice in the use of fault detection and diagnostics at their Iowa City campus.
