Temperature sensors and controls play a leading role in the government’s newest efforts to improve building efficiency. $19M will fund 18 projects across multiple technology areas in an effort to reduce energy usage of buildings 30% by 2030.
Buildings are the largest energy consumer in the nation—accounting for more than 40 percent of the nation’s total energy demand and greenhouse emissions, resulting in an annual energy bill totaling $430 billion. On average, nearly a third of this energy is wasted. It’s estimated that if the U.S. reduced energy use in buildings by 20 percent, the nation could save nearly $80 billion annually on energy bills. Mesa Labs Point Six™ Wireless sensors deliver real-time actionable data directly to Building Automation Systems (BAS) enabling them to respond to constantly changing environmental conditions.
The Mesa Labs Point Six™ Wireless CO2 sensors monitor occupancy levels by measuring the amount of CO2 in the air. The data from the sensors is wirelessly transmitted to the BAS allowing for adjustments in demand control ventilation (DCV) levels. Controlling fresh air levels results in both energy savings and improved indoor air quality – providing property owners and facilities managers with the tool to meet LEED standards for indoor air quality. Wireless Pulse Sensors report real-time energy usage for electric, gas and water meters. Deployed by Duke Energy, the largest electric power holding company in the United States, these intelligent wireless sensors provide instant notification of power outages, allowing for immediate and proactive response to customer needs.
Wireless Differential Pressure Sensors alert facilities management personnel to HVAC malfunctions and optimum filter replacement schedules, maximizing energy efficiency and reducing cost. Mesa Labs Point Six™ Wireless smart building sensors are easily configured OTA and eliminate the cost of retrofit installations by tapping into existing WiFi networks.
