PACEworx™ News Article Recap:
The Toronto, Canada-based start-up announced on Monday partnerships with solar energy-monitoring firm Fat Spaniel Technologies and with carbon-management software company Zerofootprint to optimize buildings for efficiency and clean power production.

There are already automation systems that allow commercial building managers to view data from HVAC systems or lights and set policies to improve energy efficiency.

Regen Energy CEO and co-founder Mark Kerbel asserts that its system of building a "swarm" of independent controllers is a quicker and less intrusive way to accomplish the similar efficiency goals.

To reduce the electricity used for air conditioning, for example, an HVAC professional can add a Regen Energy's EnviroGrid controller to each chiller. One of those controllers has a cell modem that can communicate with Regen Energy's software.

The decentralized decision-making approach is also a break with tradition central building management systems where building equipment is typically purchased for peak power demands.
