NV Energy has successfully implemented a new program from energy management software company BuildingIQ. The program uses BuildingIQ's integrated energy efficiency and automated demand response (autoDR) solution.
NV Energy has enrolled some of its largest customers in Las Vegas, including casinos, government and commercial buildings. BuildingIQ’s cloud-based software, which incorporates Predictive Energy Optimization, receives electronic signals from NV Energy, and automatically manages demand response events for customers without disruption to comfort or operations. NV Energy has reduced peak HVAC power consumption in buildings by as much as 20 percent on demand response event days.
The program has lowered on-going daily HVAC energy use for customers by 10 to 18 percent compared to baseline.
The incorporation of BuildingIQ is part of a larger customer engagement program for NV Energy as part of its mPowered Optimization program, in which customers receive access to the software and associated energy savings in return for participating in demand response events.
