“Turn-Key” Open Source Software Solutions for Energy Management of Small to Medium Sized Buildings (DE-FOA-0000822)

March 28, 2013 - 12:00pm


This funding opportunity is closed

Buildings consume over 40% of the total energy consumption in the U.S. A significant portion of the energy consumed in buildings is wasted because of the lack of building controls or the inability to use existing Building Automation Systems (BAS) properly. Over 90% of the buildings in the U.S. are either small-sized (<5,000 square feet, or sf) or medium-sized (between 5,000 sf and 50,000 sf); these buildings typically do not use BAS to monitor and control their building systems from a central location. This FOA seeks to develop a “turn key” BAS solution using Open-Source software and architecture specifically tailored to small and medium buildings to advance opportunities for energy efficiency in this sector.
