BERKELEY, Calif. - Scientific Conservation Inc. (SCI) announced that it has received the Frost & Sullivan 2009 Enabling Technology of the Year Award in the Automated Continuous Commissioning (ACC) market. SCI said it was cited by the research and consulting firm for its accomplishments in successfully commercializing its ACC software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, SCIwatch™, which enables building owners to reduce annual energy costs by up to 25 percent.

“Through its disruptive technology, SCI enables customers to reap the benefits arising from integration of automation and control systems and maximize the value of time sensitive information in a building,” stated Jorge Moreno, program manager in Frost & Sullivan’s environmental & building technologies practice. “This revolutionary concept not only facilitates simplification of the process of connectivity and integration, but also makes building management easier for the end users, thereby creating powerful solutions and sound technology to build bridges between systems and devices.”

According to the company, SCIwatch is a scalable energy analytics platform designed to interface with any building energy management system for automatic data collection, diagnostics, and work order issuance and tracking. It automatically predicts, detects, diagnoses, and prioritizes faults and anomalies. It also serves as a centralized system that consolidates up-to-the-minute views into energy usage and system-wide performance with reporting tailored for both executive and operational staff.

“It is indeed an honor to be the recipient of this prestigious industry award,” said David Wolins, chief executive officer at SCI. “It also serves to validate what we are hearing from our customers: SCIwatch persistently and automatically provides precise and actionable fault detection before potential problems can spiral out of control, therefore cutting energy costs substantially and avoiding system failures upon deployment.”
