Cloud-based energy analytics - Benefits and Cost Justification

New York States’ Real-Time Energy Management (RTEM) program incentivized over 600 cloud-based energy analytics deployments in commercial and multifamily buildings with systems from over 40 providers. This presentation delivers a cross-cutting of costs and benefits analysis of energy analytic platforms spanning various construction vintages, mechanical systems, building end-uses, occupation patterns and technology providers. The installed costs range from fractions of a dollar per square foot to over ten dollars per square foot. Regardless, benefits almost always justified total costs while improving the health and comfort of the building environments
