Automated Logic Corporation (ALC) and Lucid announced an alliance to create the next generation of ALC's EnergyReports™ energy analysis and reporting tool, which will make it easy for owners, operators and energy managers to monitor, manage and report on building energy performance. To achieve this, the new EnergyReports tool combines building data from ALC's powerful WebCTRL® building automation system with Lucid's industry-leading BuildingOS® cloud-based energy management platform. ALC is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
"We are excited to take our EnergyReports tool to the next level together," says Mead Rusert, president, Automated Logic. "Lucid is a pivotal player in the energy management space and our shared dedication to simple, intuitive and powerful user interfaces aligns us for success. The secure data connection between the WebCTRL® building automation system and our new cloud-based EnergyReports tool will provide peace of mind for our customers as well as comprehensive, customizable energy visualization and analysis."
With the new EnergyReports tool, building owners and operators will be able to use their WebCTRL building automation system to securely push data from a single building or a portfolio of buildings to the cloud. From there, they can create graphs, charts, reports and dashboards to visualize the building data, which will enable them to:
- Analyze and normalize energy consumption across buildings
- Compare energy costs across buildings
- Convert energy consumption data to cost or carbon dioxide emissions
- Benchmark building performance data against ENERGY STAR® scores
- Identify performance issues to maximize building efficiency
- Improve occupant comfort, productivity and engagement
- Drive energy conservation measures
The data visualizations are intuitive and flexible and can be shared easily between operators, energy managers and executives, allowing each to see the key performance indicators that matter most to them.
"We are thrilled to be working with ALC to power their new EnergyReports™ tool," says Will Coleman, CEO, Lucid. "The collaboration enables ALC and Lucid customers to leverage a seamless interface with the WebCTRL® building automation system. Users will be able to quickly and easily leverage their data to deliver insights that can be understood by all stakeholders. Together we are making building data much more actionable and valuable."
The new EnergyReports™ tool is expected to be available in Q3 2017 through Automated Logic field offices worldwide.
