Pulse Engagement Dashboards Go Live at UC Berkeley
Students and faculty provided with powerful energy information software to increase energy awareness & meet sustainability goals
VANCOUVER, B.C. – April 16th 2012 – Pulse Energy, leading energy management software firm, today announced a contract with the University of California at Berkeley to deploy the Pulse™ platform. Pulse Energy Manager software and Engagement Dashboards are currently being installed across the UC Berkeley campus, monitoring over 120 buildings and helping achieve leading-edge environmental goals.
Pulse Engagement Dashboards, displayed through physical kiosks and an online portal, use interactive technology to show students & faculty their energy consumption and the measures that would reduce their environmental footprint. UC Berkeley’s facility managers will use the Pulse Energy Manager’s tools to ensure their buildings are performing at optimal efficiency, and be instantly alerted to costly energy anomalies. Departmental & university planning will benefit from energy & cost forecasting, with Measurement & Verification (M&V) tools to demonstrate the benefits of environmental initiatives.
Energy efficiency is one of the key pillars of UC Berkeley’s Cal Climate Action Partnership (CalCAP), a multi-year effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2014. Around half of the planned buildings are currently active, with deployment scheduled to complete by summer 2012. To view the Pulse-powered online energy portal, please see: mypower.berkeley.edu
