Commercial, Institutional and Lab Building Owners Continue to Turn to Aircuity to Lower Energy Costs While Improving Efficiency and Occupant Safety
Aircuity, the smart airside efficiency company, announced today that it has continued to experience unprecedented growth and success throughout 2010. With a record number of new customers and a growing number of successful implementations, the company and its intelligent ventilation and optimization technology continues to be an important partner to commercial, institutional and lab building owners looking to lower operating costs, provide a safer and more productive working environment, while becoming more energy efficient.
Recent research from the CleanTech Group has found that commercial buildings consume a whopping 40% of the electricity produced in the U.S. While energy efficient lighting solutions have become commonplace, optimizing building ventilation has only recently gained attention. “Our customers are quickly realizing that building ventilation optimization can be their single largest energy efficiency measure,” explained Dan Diehl, vice president of sales for Aircuity. “An initial installation is often so successful that it leads customers to roll out a campus‐wide program aimed at reducing carbon emissions and lowering energy costs.”
Aircuity on the Road
At this week’s Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, being held November 16 – 19 in Chicago, IL, Aircuity will be showcasing its OptiNet system—a comprehensive suite of intelligent ventilation measurement and optimization technologies that continuously senses and analyzes a building’s indoor environment. Company executives will be on hand throughout the event to share real‐world examples of how Aircuity’s technology has helped building owners and managers reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprint while still maintaining a healthy indoor environment for occupants.
“By addressing the inherent deficiencies in conventional building ventilation, Aircuity’s smart solutions deliver significant energy savings for a wide variety of facilities,” said Patrick T. Romich, CEO of Aircuity. “We have seen an increased amount of attention focused on building ventilation improvements because of the strong return on investment and the ability of Aircuity to help facilities quickly reach their carbon reduction and sustainability goals.”
If you happen to be attending the event, please feel free to visit the company at booth #1432, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to schedule a specific time to meet.
Free Energy Savings Report
Aircuity is also now offering a free “Aircuity Energy Savings Report” where it will look at the details of one of your buildings and provide an estimate of potential energy savings and efficiency improvements.
To order your own report, please visit: https://www.aircuity.com/energy‐savings‐report/ and share some basic information, such as building location, size and current utility rates. Aircuity will then crunch the numbers and turn around a brief look at how the facility in question can become more energy efficient.

Recent Customer Successes and Company Milestones
Aircuity has seen a record number of successful customer implementations in 2010, and recently announced a partnership with a long‐time industry leader. Some of these successes include:
The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, part of Masdar City—a UAE‐based cleantech cluster that aims to be one of the most sustainable cities in the world—recently announced that it has selected Aircuity to improve lab safety, cut emissions and lower operating and first costs. The project has generated energy savings of slightly over 3,000 MWh or about 32.5 KWh per square foot, representing a 55% average reduction in the total HVAC energy consumption of the affected lab and non‐lab areas. Additionally, this energy savings reduces the university’s solar PV capacity requirements by almost 1.5 megawatts.
- Aircuity announced a channel sales agreement with the Building Technologies Division of Siemens, where the company will resell Aircuity’s OptiNet system to its life sciences customers. Aircuity’s intelligent ventilation and optimization technology integrates well with Siemens’ solutions, providing customers with improved energy efficiency and enhanced indoor environmental quality (IEQ).
- The Bank of America Tower in New York recently became the first commercial high‐rise building in U.S. history to be awarded a LEED platinum rating by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The Tower earned this rating with the help of Aircuity’s intelligent ventilation measurement and optimization technology which helped the 55‐story building continuously monitor multiple Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) parameters such as CO2, CO, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and small particulates. Because of Aircuity, New York City’s second‐tallest building can ensure a consistently high quality of ventilation air for its tenants.
- Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and utility company NSTAR recently announced their “Efficiency Forward” program, which is an aggressive initiative to reduce electricity use at MIT by 15% over the next three years. As a part of this project, Aircuity has been engaged to optimize the building ventilation systems in its Hayden Library facility. Aircuity solutions have already been installed in MIT’s new Sloan School of Management facility.
- Aircuity’s Lab Demand Control Ventilation (Lab DCV) technology will be installed in Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, to continually sense and analyze its lab environments. By reducing the air changes when lab conditions are determined to be clean—and increasing the ventilation only when needed—Lab DCV helps to maintain safe and energy efficient ventilation to the hospital’s research and lab facilities.
Aircuity is the smart airside efficiency company providing building owners with sustained energy savings through its intelligent measurement solutions. By combining real‐time sensing and continuous analysis of indoor environments, the company has helped commercial, institutional and lab building owners lower operating costs, improve safety and become more energy efficient. Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Newton, MA, Aircuity’s solutions have benefitted organizations such as the University of Pennsylvania, Eli Lilly, Masdar City, the Bank of America Tower and the University of California‐Irvine.
