What you’re looking at are the preliminary designs for a soon-to-be-launched 5,500+ square foot energy management center, which will be located at the SUNY (State University of New York) Polytechnic Institute’s Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in their zero energy nano building.
Under NY Governor Cuomo and the NYPA (NY Power Authority), the NYEM (New York Energy Manager) is a comprehensive network/decision tool that utilizes Big Data analytics to monitor and troubleshoot buildings to reduce energy waste.
This statewide energy-monitoring hub will ensure efficient management for more than 3,000 public buildings, equipped to serve many more facilities as well. With real-time data on energy use, building energy performance will be improved, which, economically, will lower the state’s overall utility bills.
“Basically, it will be like performing an MRI on a facility and getting an incredibly detailed report about how it consumes energy,” said Gil C. Quiniones (@GQEnergy), President and Chief Executive Officer of the New York Power Authority.
The Big Data analytics provided by NYEM will keep government building operators better informed in real-time diagnostics regarding energy management decisions and future changes in usage determination.
“Gov. Andrew Cuomo has created the innovation capital of the world right here in New York state, and through CNSE’s partnership with NYPA, we will further advance the governor’s vision to be the leader in developing next-generation energy technologies. As energy demands continue to grow, we must make a significant commitment to increasing efficiencies. This partnership will deliver game-changing advances in energy management, and we welcome NYPA and its NYEM team to the world-class Albany NanoTech complex.”
— SUNY Polytechnic Institute CEO Dr. Alain Kaloyeros
I obviously don’t have to mention how wonderful of a step this is inside the United States. Just as Tesla has set the trend for the production of an efficient robotic automobile manufacturing complex, along with the most efficient electric vehicle ever, SUNY Polytechnic Institute will set the trend for energy management, establishing a model example of how we should replicate these kinds of strategies throughout the country, and the growing modern world.
