Summary

Energy efficiency is the cleanest, greenest, and the most financially savvy energy resource we have, but millions of buildings still burn billions of dollars worth of wasted energy.  While improving the efficiency of buildings can provide a rapid return on investment, projects are often delayed because people and businesses don’t want to spend money.  Every month of delay is another month that energy and money are wasted.  To help efficiency projects move forward, innovator Empowered Energy Solutions Inc. (EESI) has developed software that harnesses the power of natural selection to optimize efficiency and provide the best financial solution for each building.

Energy efficiency is the cleanest, greenest, and the most financially savvy energy resource around, but millions of buildings still burn billions of dollars worth of wasted energy that could be easily saved. Energy efficiency projects can generate a rapid return on investment, but people and businesses often delay or ignore them because they don’t want to spend money. That’s a big mistake - every month of delay is another month that energy and money are wasted. Taking action requires an investment, but doing nothing costs far more. To get efficiency projects going Empowered Energy Solutions Inc. (EESI) is utilizing software that harnesses the power of natural selection to find the efficiency measures providing the best financial solution for each building.  

The wide range of options to boost the efficiency of buildings include better windows, environmental controls, cool roofing, more efficient lighting, daylighting, weather-sealing, insulation, efficient HVAC equipment, sealing air ducts, and efficient appliances. Many energy projects also include solar energy to further reduce the operating cost and ensure cheap energy for years to come. These improvements will all save money and energy, but they vary greatly in their cost, incentives provided, and the return on investment. Energy efficiency and clean energy solutions are not one size fits all – what works best for one building won’t always be the same for another. 
 
The ever-changing landscape of tax credits, rebates, and loans for energy efficiency should also shape decisions about energy retrofits. Building owners want to know that energy efficiency investments make financial sense, and that they are getting the most bang for their buck. 
 
Some efficiency contractors apply rules of thumb to each project, while others rely on a specific solution applied over and over again. Often the solutions that are sold depend more on who is selling them than whether they are the best in each case. When your business is selling solar power, the solution for each building is usually solar panels. When your business is selling AC or heating equipment, you tend to provide these as the solution. Solar panels and efficient HVAC equipment are valuable tools but they are not the only options and won’t always be the best ones without incorporating other efficiency measures. 
 
With so many options and such a range of incentives, factoring in all of the possibilities for each building can make finding the right efficiency solution enormously complex. Rather than trying to sort through them all one at a time, a better way to go is to use software to find the optimal combination of cost and value. EESI is applying computational tools in partnership with Natural Selection, Inc. (NSI) to sort through the many options and find the solution that is best for the bottom line. NSI has a 17-year history of applying computational intelligence approaches to solving real-world problems. Jose Torre-Bueno, the Chief Technology Officer of EESI first worked with NSI and their revolutionary natural selection algorithms ten years ago when he and other scientists applied the technology to make some of the first breakthroughs in reliable breast cancer diagnostics.
 
While the software approach EESI uses to find the best efficiency solution is new, they’re not newcomers to green building. Distinctive Builders, the contracting company that partnered with Natural Selection, Inc. to create EESI, has been at the cutting edge of green contracting in Southern California for 32 years, with a flawless record and hundreds of completed projects for government, commercial, non-profit, and residential customers. “Empowered is a marriage of decades of practical contracting know-how with revolutionary technology.” said Ted Torre-Bueno, President and VP of Operations of EESI. They guarantee the energy performance of the projects they take on, ensuring delivery of the savings they predict.
 
Before launching into a solar or energy efficiency project, consider working with a comprehensive service provider like EESI to ensure you get the best solution for your bottom line.
