Enerliance Recognized As Leading Green Company In Orange County

May 07, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- Enerliance has been recognized for its positive contribution to the environment, being listed as a member of the "2013 Green Team" by OC Register Metro magazine.

The recognition stems from the environmental benefits of the company's LOBOS platform - software that adds intelligence to the air conditioning systems in large buildings making occupants more comfortable while at the same time significantly reducing energy waste. The platform also provides fully automated demand response capabilities during times of energy grid congestion.

The listing as a 2013 Green Team honoree recognizes both the company's past accomplishments and its future potential.

"LOBOS systems and logic have been installed in more than 40-million square feet of commercial space, with another 34-million square feet planned for 2013," said Ray Pustinger, Enerliance president. "Right now, it's saving more than $3 million in annual energy costs for facility owners and occupants" In terms of greenhouse gas reductions, the system's current energy savings are equivalent to keeping over 4,000 cars off the road for a year.

The future holds even more promise. An independent study commissioned by Enerliance found that if its LOBOS system was installed in every compatible commercial office building in the country, it could reduce energy consumption by more than 46,000 gigawatt hours annually. In terms of emissions, that's equivalent to keeping nearly 10-million cars off the road every year.

Increasing energy-efficiency isn't the only environmental benefit of the company's LOBOS system. It also plays a critical part in helping to realize the promise of the smart grid through its automated demand response capabilities.

Periods of peak-demand on the electric-grid can cause blackouts and other issues. The automated demand response capabilities in LOBOS help solve these issues, without requiring that additional power plants be built.

Currently, LOBOS systems are already delivering 16 megawatts of automated demand response capacity to the Southern California electric grid. If the system were deployed nationwide in compatible office buildings it could offer more than 25 gigawatts of automated demand response power reduction. That's equivalent to the electricity generated by 21 nuclear power plants.

"Demand for LOBOS is being driven by the combination of the system's environmental and cost benefits," explains Pustinger. "Companies who install LOBOS don't have to pick between being green or saving money. They get both." For Enerliance executives, building a product with such significant benefits is a rewarding experience.

"This work lets me indulge my natural inclination to figure out how to make things work better," says Scot Duncan, Enerliance CEO and founder. "At the same time, I get to make a meaningful contribution to leaving a better planet for my kids." Enerliance and the 10 other 2013 Green Team honorees were recognized at a reception held on April 10th at the Orange County Great Park.

--- About Enerliance: Enerliance is the company behind LOBOS, an intelligent optimization system for large-scale, air conditioning systems that offers improved comfort, energy-efficiency and fully-automated demand response capability that materially improves bottom lines for building owners and occupants.

Currently, LOBOS systems are delivering more than 16-megawatts of fully automated demand response capability to the grid along with more than $3 million in annual energy savings. The core technologies behind the LOBOS platform are protected under patent number US 7,890,215 B2.

Enerliance works with energy solutions providers, mechanical contractors, building automation contractors, controls manufacturers, utilities and other LOBOS-certified partners to integrate LOBOS systems in buildings across the country.
