Schools and districts selected for SRS pilots will receive a free installation and 1-2 year license for a smart building technology for managing energy, carbon and comfort in commercial buildings. The technology deploys a novel Machine Learning algorithm that generates a model of how the selected building should optimally run based on the physical structure of the building, user inputs and data-derived insights into how a building, equipment and occupants interact while also responding to grid, or, energy pricing signals.
In a similar way to how Snapchat bunny ears follow a human face, the model predictive control technology operates the building equipment as close as possible to the optimum in real time and in doing so saves end users from having to manually adjust building and equipment operation. That saves time and money while actually improving occupant comfort. Doing so improves the economics of resilience and defrays the cost of backup generation for the host school should your district wish to move in that direction. Your site is under no obligation to renew the software license once the pilot ends.
