  • Patent number: 11416017
    Abstract: A building manager includes a communications interface configured to receive information from a smart energy grid. The building manager further includes an integrated control layer configured to receive inputs from and to provide outputs to a plurality of building subsystems. The integrated control layer includes a plurality of control algorithm modules configured to process the inputs and to determine the outputs. The building manager further includes a fault detection and diagnostics layer configured to use statistical analysis on the inputs received from the integrated control layer to detect and diagnose faults. The building manager yet further includes a demand response layer configured to process the information received from the smart energy grid to determine adjustments to the plurality of control algorithms of the integrated control layer.

  • Publication number: 20120150707
    Abstract: A system for providing energy and/or water efficient building improvements to a building owned by a building owner is shown and described. The system includes a computer system configured to generate an invoice for the building owner based on estimated utilities that would have been consumed by the building had the building improvement measures not been installed. The computer system causes payment to an entity financing the building equipment using a portion of the difference between the invoiced estimated baseline utility consumption and the actual utility consumption costs.
