We are pleased to share that the Federal Government Services Administration (GSA) recently highlighted our technology, the Wireless Pneumatic Thermostat (WPT), in their newsletter Emerging Building Technologies. The newsletter is below and on the GSA's website here.
The WPT was installed in 80,000 square-feet of the Ronald Reagan Building and analyzed by building scientists from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory for over a year as part of the GSA's Proving Ground (GPG). (You can find their full study on the GSA's website here.) Their conclusion, as noted in the newsletter:
"GPG's assessment recommends considering wireless pneumatic thermostats for all facilities with conventional pneumatic controls."
As a result of the GPG study, the WPT has been deployed to GSA buildings in NYC and is currently being deployed to more GSA buildings in Texas, totaling over 5 million square feet. Due to the unique non-invasive nature of the WPT, the GSA is able to modernize buildings that were stuck in the past to take advantage of control strategies only available to digitized buildings.
Stuart Lamkin, the Project manager for the Lanham Federal Building in Fort Worth, Texas is quoted in the newsletter:
“We’re happy to have found a GSA cybersecurity-approved wireless technology that provides access to energy saving control strategies that weren’t previously available. An ESPC ENABLE contract streamlined our procurement process so WPT can be up and running in less than six months.”
