MACH Energy Launches New M&V 2.0 Capabilities

Measurement and verification functionality leapfrogs market by making project analysis easy and accurate

OAKLAND, CA, June 7, 2017 — MACH Energy, the leading provider of energy management software, announced the launch of its new version of Initiatives featuring Measurement and Verification (M&V 2.0) capabilities. MACH’s software allows commercial real estate operators, 3rd party partners, and progressive utilities to track and quantify differences in energy use load patterns over time. MACH’s products currently manage iconic landmarks, hotels, and office buildings nationwide, such as the World Financial Center in New York, the San Francisco Ferry Building, and the Aon Center In Chicago.

“MACH’s Initiatives has already helped us achieve significant savings and is a convenient reporting tool for our asset managers,” said Max Greninger, Property Sustainability Manager of Carr Properties .“The new M&V functionality helps us evaluate and communicate “What if” scenarios and actual savings to the team, and also assists in ROI reporting and calculations. We’re glad that MACH continues to innovate with functional and useful tools like these.”

“We’ve taken a standards-based approach to project and operational changes and integrated them into our easy to use Initiatives,” said Brian Glynn, MACH’s Senior Vice President of Product Management. “This solution also leverages MACH’s extensive experience with meter based data and our robust tariff engine. It is already employed in a multitude of use cases, including tracking capital and operational project savings, estimating potential projects, and demonstrating third-party verification. It will enable building teams to accurately evaluate their projects, and communicate those savings to all stakeholders.”

The M&V function is an expansion of Initiatives, MACH’s existing tool that automatically identifies operational savings opportunities. M&V tracks the savings of any energy project by enabling users to apply their own custom specifications whether these variables are already implemented or are being evaluated. Additional features include:

  • Tracking a project’s savings over the course of the equipment’s life
  • Utilizing MACH’s normalized baseline, or provide a custom baseline
  • “What if” project justification with the calculation of annualized savings, payback period and return on investment (ROI)
  • Portfolio view to analyze projects across buildings
  • Adjusting savings for capital costs and rebate incentive programs
  • Automatic email reporting at user configurable frequencies support a range of different stakeholders
  • Provides approachable executive level reports with analysis and visualizations

The M&V solution is based on a number of standards that define savings projections and the measurement and verification process. These include ASHRAE Guideline 14, International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol (IPMVP), and the Department of Energy’s Measurement and Verification Guidelines.

MACH Energy Joins Mission:data Coalition to Support Data Transparency and Automation from Utilities for Increased Smart Meter Utilization

Delivery of energy data in standard formats is key to unlocking conservation and bill savings

OAKLAND, CA, August 29, 2016 – MACH Energy, a leading provider of energy and water management software services and solutions, today announced the company has joined Mission:data Coalition, an advocacy coalition of technology companies dedicated to promoting and facilitating customer access to their energy usage information to enable increased energy savings in homes and businesses.

Standards and protocols for exchanging energy data are available and implemented in a few large states accounting for about half of U.S. investor-owned utility advanced meter deployments, but many states still lag in providing consumers with access to their usage data, depriving consumers of important opportunities to conserve energy and save money.

To date, billions of dollars have been spent on smart meters nation-wide. The data from these meters can be used to reduce energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions, but most end-user benefits cannot be realized until utilities implement common standards for data transfer. Once customers can simply and electronically authorize companies to see their usage data – as is now possible in the state of California – bill analysis and cost management tools like MACH Energy’s can be accessible to all commercial energy users.

“As energy management becomes an increasingly ubiquitous practice, accessible data is crucial to customers getting the most out of their technologies,” said Jon Moeller, President and CEO of MACH Energy. “We applaud the work the Mission:data Coalition has done to further this initiative and are excited to join them in fostering consumer-friendly data access practices to advance energy efficiency in the commercial real estate sector.”

“By bringing together industry leaders like MACH in energy and data management, we are advocating for policies that will help to spur innovation in energy management services,” said Michael Murray, Chief Technology Strategist of Mission:data. “We’re looking forward to working with MACH and leveraging the company’s deep experience in CRETech to inform best practices for the utility industry.”
