PNNL Releases New Bldg Energy Efficiency Software (Ind. Report)
Date: 2021-01-20
The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is touting its Facility Energy Decision System (FEDS), an easy-to-use software tool that performs energy efficiency assessments by analyzing existing building energy use and identifying cost-effective savings opportunities.

A key attribute of FEDS 8.0 is the ability to initiate assessments with a limited detail of characteristics. FEDS fills in unknown details based on the parameters specified with a sophisticated internal inference generator whose results can be reviewed and updated as appropriate.

The highly scalable tool simulates building systems, including building shell, lighting, HVAC, and water heating technologies and calculates loads and energy use to analyze the cost and performance impact of thousands of potential efficiency measures.

Development of FEDS was supported by the U.S. DOE Federal Energy Management Program in coordination with other government agencies.

LEAPTRAN Completes UTSA Energy Consumption Test (Ind. Report)
Date: 2020-04-08
In the Lone Star State, the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) Office of Facilities is reporting successful completion of a six-month pilot program using LEAPTRAN technology to track energy usage in a specific building on campus.

The LEAPTRAN smart sub-metering solution enables remote monitoring, storage, transfer and access of higher quality data than traditional meters. The package includes meter hardware, computation and communication device, and Leaptran in-house developed software.

LEAPTRAN was founded in 2017 and is a UTSA startup facilitated and managed by the UTSA Office of Commercialization and Innovation. (Source: UTSA Today, 7 April, 2020) Contact: LEAPTRAN, Jeff Xu, CEO, Edward Hooks, COO, 210-643-1977,; University of Texas at San Antonio, 210-458-4011,

HPE, NREL Collaborate on Energy Efficiency (Ind. Report)
Hewlett Packard ,NREL
Date: 2019-11-20
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) reports they will collaborate with the US DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) on the development of water and energy efficiency software for data centers.

HPE expects the three-year collaboration to train machine learning models to detect anomalies so that energy efficiency issues can be predicted and prevented. (Source: HPE, Storage Review, 18 Nov., 2019) Contact: HPE,; NREL,

Emissions, Energy Cutting Service Launched in Singapore (Int'l)
KBC Global
Date: 2018-10-22
In Singapore, energy software and services provider KBC Global is reporting the launch of a subscription-based service that in effect acts as a "second pair of expert eyes" on a subscribing firm's facilities and energy efficiency and consumption. The resulting information is upload on KBC's secured cloud platform. The service provider will be able to monitor the plant and thereafter analyse plant performance, identify possible improvement opportunities and formulate a plan that will optimize energy efficiency , cut costs and in turn reduce carbon emissions.

The subscription fee is paid for from a portion of the energy savings that are achieved. The KBC service follows on the heels of Singapore's Energy Conservation Act mandating large industrial emitters to report greenhouse gas emissions from 2021. The KBC measures will help Singapore achieve its pledge under the Paris Agreement on climate change to reduce emissions intensity by 36 pct from 2005 levels by 2030. The industrial sector currently accounts for about 60 pct of Singapore's GHG emissions, according to the National Environmental Agency.
