  1. BuildingOS brings energy intelligence to Cushman & Wakefield clients

    As a global leader in real estate services, Cushman & Wakefield works to keep their clients’ building portfolios running at peak optimization. The firm announced in November their partnership with Lucid to use BuildingOS to centralize and analyze data, making it easier to satisfy their clients’ unique sustainability and energy goals.

  2. Automated Logic (ALC) selects BuildingOS for new reporting tool to help managers to monitor, manage and report on energy performance

    Automated Logic (ALC) partnered with Lucid to launch a new version of their energy analysis and reporting tool, EnergyReports, which utilizes BuildingOS’ cloud-based technology. Building operators can securely push data from single buildings or a portfolio of buildings to the cloud, where they can visualize building data and use it compare energy costs between buildings, drive conservation measures and identify performance issues.

  3. New online building benchmarking tool developed alongside DOE empowers building managers

    In partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Lucid unveiled Benchmark My Building in March. The free service leverages multiple government data sources so building managers can quickly compare efficiency and performance against similar buildings, empowering them to make informed decisions better for business — and the environment.

  4. Energy Manager Today named BuildingOS Dashboards a 2017 Top Product of the Year

    Energy Manager Today, the leading daily trade publication in the energy efficiency space, designated BuildingOS Dashboards as a Top Product of the Year. The publication praised BuildingOS’ use of real-time data collection and visualization to make essential KPIs “effortlessly available” to essential personnel.

  5. Sustainability Outlook Survey Report paints hopeful picture in wake of Trump administration

    With political administrative changes that may affect sustainability, Lucid worked with Urjanet to create a report distilling current attitudes toward sustainability among facilities managers, building operators and sustainability professionals. In surveying more than 100 organizations, we found companies were overall undaunted by deregulation and planned to continue sustainability efforts. Read the full Sustainability Outlook Report.

  6. Universities use BuildingOS to commit to energy conservation

    Sierra Magazine’s 2017 Cool School List — the holy grail of awards for schools working to conserve energy — recognized schools for their sustainability and energy management initiatives. Of the top 20 schools recognized on the list, seven used BuildingOS to achieve their sustainability goals.

  7. Energy experts address how technology can improve energy management at Building Energy Summit

    Lucid CEO Will Coleman spoke on the panel The Last Frontier: Transforming Buildings through Data Visualization at the Building Energy Summit in Washington, D.C. At the panel, he discussed ways businesses are using data to implement energy efficient technologies and save millions across their building portfolios.

  8. U.S. Small Business Administration awards Lucid with Tibbetts Award

    In a White House ceremony, the U.S. Small Business Administration awarded Lucid the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Tibbetts Award. Lucid was recognized for saving private businesses millions of dollars through strategic energy conservation and management.

  9. More businesses benefit from energy intelligence with new DOE grant

    Lucid won its second grant from the U.S. Department of Energy in 2017 to continue researching energy efficiency with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Together, they’ll work to improve the Commercial Building Energy Saver (CBES) project, better providing quickly-accessible, actionable efficiency recommendations to building managers.

  10. Energy Hero Toolkit helps managers increase savings

    As part of their efforts to educate and empower businesses about building optimization, Lucid created a free Energy Hero Toolkit to help building and facilities managers save money, curb energy use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Download your free toolkit to get started.
