Solutions customized to your facility needs automatically

Create a customized plan based on your facility goals and data – automatically. We start with your priorities, goals and constraints for managing the facility. Next, Callida’s software learns energy use and occupancy patterns.

The result

A plan tailored to your facility using a big data approach. Your priorities drive the trade-offs made in delivering the optimal building control solution. You choose which of the Callida solutions to deploy in your facility:

Callida Occupant App Solution

The Callida Occupant App solution turns off cooling or heating to unoccupied space to stop energy waste.  Occupants use the Callida Occupant App to submit real-time updates on office comfort.  The Callida platform uses app inputs to learn occupancy patterns, create realistic schedules and identify changes to thermal set points to drive down waste and energy costs.  Zone comfort problems are visualized for facilities management to improve occupant comfort.

Callida Monitoring Solution

Callida monitors demand to avoid setting new peaks and to determine ways to reduce costly demand charges.  Callida monitors energy consumption to point out opportunities for reductions and to verify savings achieved.

Callida Predictive Control Solution

The Callida Predictive Control solution uses predictive models of the building energy consumption and space temperature to recommend improved HVAC control strategies that reduce energy use and costs while maintaining occupant comfort.

Tap the power of your facility data

A hidden opportunity exists within collected building sensor and meter data to achieve comfort objectives with less waste. Our solution unlocks the power of your data, looking for patterns, detecting inefficiencies and creating new opportunities to reduce energy costs and carbon. Callida works with you to build a strong data foundation to drive improvement in your facility performance today and tomorrow.

Attack peak demand for maximum impact

Demand charges based on your sustained peak demand can comprise 30% to 70% of your facility’s electric bill. Callida helps you attack your peaks and deliver savings from reduced demand charges and lower consumption. Peak demand reductions also increase your opportunity to participate in demand response programs.

Product Functionality

1. ENGAGE

Functionality-Engage2

The Callida Occupant App Solution engages occupants by letting them submit real-time comfort ratings through the Callida Occupant App. The Callida software uses that data to drive down waste by ensuring that conditioning is delivered only where people are present. Improve comfort as the Callida system learns actual occupancy patterns and provides office workers a way to give comfort input with one click.

2. CUSTOMIZE

Functionality-Customize2

Callida software learns energy usage patterns and takes into account your facility goals, priorities and constraints to recommend the optimal building control strategy. We automate energy optimization to minimize the manual effort of developing a customized solution that can be continuously improved.

3. CONTROL
Functionality-Control2

The Callida Occupant App Solution learns zone occupancy patterns through occupant inputs and creates realistic operating schedules to turn-off cooling and heating to unoccupied office space to cut energy waste. Analysis of the comfort perceptions allows the thermal set points to be refined.  The Callida Predictive Control Solution uses predictive modeling to develop a 24-hour building control strategy of set points and schedules to manage HVAC systems as controlled by the building management system (BMS). This strategy utilizes the building’s energy dynamics, weather forecasts, occupancy, energy prices, facility input and learned usage patterns to deliver an optimized control strategy.

4. MONITOR
Functionality-Monitor2

The Callida Monitoring solutions allows you to monitor operations and verify savings compared to your baseline. Use Callida to track demand and energy consumption. Our solution monitors demand to prevent setting new peaks and to point out opportunities for reductions. We monitor energy consumption to identify savings opportunities and to track performance vs. a baseline to verify savings achieved through implementation of Callida recommended building control strategies. We normalize energy consumption measurements to ensure an accurate comparison of current results vs. historical performance.

The Technology

The Callida Occupant App solution is comprised of the Callida Occupant App and the Callida back-end system that performs the analysis and improves the facility HVAC control strategy.  This approach of controlling the heating or cooling to the zone based on actual occupancy and using occupants’ comfort inputs to fine-tune thermal set points can be used in broad range of commercial buildings under BMS control.  The Callida Occupant App gathers comfort ratings from occupants on a 5 point scale from “Too Hot” to “Too Cold”.  These occupant inputs enable the Callida back-end system to analyze zone occupancy patterns, build a predictive model and create recommended HVAC operating schedules based on the real occupancy of the space.  This creates a significant opportunity to reduce energy waste in conditioning space that is unoccupied.

Callida’s Consensus Comfort™  approach creates a zone comfort rating that is a consensus of all of the individual comfort ratings reported in a zone.  The Callida back-end system visualizes zone comfort problems immediately to Facilities Management and over time analyzes zone comfort perceptions to fine-tune thermal set points.  Continued use of the Callida Occupant App provides new data to update the zone occupancy model as space usage patterns change.

The Callida Predictive Control solution utilizes model predictive control, an advanced method for optimizing energy that is beginning to be used in commercial buildings.   Callida uses a machine learning approach to create a data-driven model of energy use based on building and utility data. Callida software uses this model to predict energy requirements based on weather forecasts, projected occupancy and comfort constraints. The optimal HVAC control strategy is created by using facility input on goals, constraints and priorities to optimize predicted energy consumption.  Through our adaptive approach we also close the loop for continuous improvement.
