ECOPILOT® – HVAC OPTIMIZATION WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)

HOW DOES ECOPILOT® WORK?

Once Ecopilot® integrates with your existing, Building Automation System, it goes to work finding your building’s “balance point temperature”.  Artificial Intelligence determines that number through real-time indoor data, 5-day weather forecasts and your building’s unique capacity for thermal mass. Ecopilot® continuously calculates the energy balance between these factors, automatically and continuously adjusting set points for heating, cooling and ventilation – every two minutes.

For us, this project has been one of the easiest to implement, with the best ROI.

Ecopilot® ANALYSIS TOOL

Efficiency savings are automatic and continuous and your team can view Ecopilot®’s real-time impact on operations with the Ecopilot® Analysis Tool. This 24/7 online dashboard displays real-time energy consumption savings and helps building operators analyze the efficiency of your existing Building Management System with a suite of essential data and interactive illustrations, including:


REAL-TIME ENERGY SAVINGS

The dashboard provides a real-time look at actual energy consumption savings with Ecopilot®. You’ll also receive energy alerts and historical data.

BUILDING CONDITIONS IN REAL TIME

See how current conditions like sun, wind and outdoor temperature affect your building’s performance. Ecopilot® automatically applies this data to optimize HVAC efficiency.

INDOOR CLIMATE CONSISTENCY

Identify and control the most important parameters for maintaining an indoor temperature within user-specified comfort levels.

HOT SPOTS, COLD SPOTS

Access your building’s dynamic temperature map 24/7, with graphic displays mapping your building’s hot and cold zones in real time. This data helps maintain climate and point to areas where energy consumption can be improved.

CO2 & ATMOSPHERIC HUMIDITY

Our standard room sensors can be supplemented to measure CO2 and atmospheric humidity. Having these details gives you even more control over maintaining a pleasant indoor climate.

ENERGY-SAVING OPPORTUNITIES

You’ll also receive recommendations for additional energy saving measures. Ecopilot® is a powerful tool for identifying imbalances, system failures and flaws in the connected heating/cooling systems.

WHAT TO
EXPECT FROM
ECOPILOT.®

UP TO 40% IN HVAC SAVINGS.

Ecopilot® uses real-time data, 5-day weather forecasts and building thermodynamics to proactively optimize your automation system in real time.

AVERAGE ROI OF 3 YEARS.

Our smart customers see an average 25% reduction annually in HVAC energy consumption.

Meet our customers who are saving.

HAPPIER, HEALTHIER TENANTS.

Maintaining an indoor climate within a comfortable, stable range has been shown to increase productivity while reducing illness and complaints.

Ecopilot® optimizes the coordination and long-term planning of the connected HVAC systems.  This saves energy but also eliminates large temperature differences resulting in a more pleasant indoor environment.

hvac curtailment during costly peak demand events.

With the precise peak demand prediction capability of EnPowered and the autonomous functionality of Ecopilot®’s AI solution for HVAC energy efficiency, comes a unique tool for massive dollar savings during expensive peak demand periods.

Ecopilot® and EnPowered have combined their two services to bring to market peak demand prediction services coupled with automated curtailment of HVAC demand during peak demand events. Now, that’s smart. 

INDUSTRY EXPERTS.

We first commercialized Ecopilot® in 2008, and after making more than 1,000 buildings smarter, we know it works. That’s why we guarantee our savings with no upfront install costs — you’ll only pay what you save.

Our savings are guaranteed. Check out our Measurement and Verification document.

FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS.

Ecopilot® requires integration with a building automation system that speaks either BACNet, Modbus, or other common communication protocols. Don’t have a BAS? We can add one. Also, does your building have a central system (boiler, chiller)? Ecopilot® offsets supply temperature setpoints for heating loops, cooling loops, and air handling units, as well as start and stop of these systems when the long-term need for cooling or heating is not required. If VFD’s are in place, Ecopilot® will also offset air and pump flows.

No. Ecopilot® minimizes consumption for HVAC.

Every building is different, but based on 1,000 installations, annual HVAC energy savings are 25% and average ROI is 3 years. Contact us for a free assessment.

On average, between 6 – 12 weeks.

Immediately. You’ll see results the second Ecopilot® is turned on.

No. Ecopilot® integrates with modern control systems.

No way! Ecopilot® will not prevent your automation system from being overridden by building operators. Changes can also be made within Ecopilot® by your building staff.

Yes! Ecopilot® adds an extra layer of energy efficiency that will harness thermal properties to balance temperatures, optimize HVAC and modulate control strategy for greater efficiencies (and savings).

No. Ecopilot® aims to leverage existing on-site assets. As part of our assessment and ongoing support, our team will make recommendations for future considerations with the goal of expanding both efficiencies and the life of on-site assets.

As part of our building assessment, you’ll provide us with historical energy consumption data. This will become the reference point for the calculation of how Ecopilot® performs. The reference point data will be presented in the property’s energy signature in Ecopilot’s dashboard display. Read more about Ecopilot’s M&V.

Consider us a power add-on tool to your existing automation system. Ecopilot® is based on over 15 years of commercial experience and more than 1,000 installations. Unlike your BAS, Ecopilot’s proprietary algorithm is inclusive of our extensive understanding of thermodynamics and weather forecasting. We collect these data elements and provide automatic and continuous energy savings based on the ever-changing balance point temperature.
