Utilibridge™

Unlocking energy data for buildings at scale.

Verified data for utilities and their customers.

Utilities don't know buildings, and they need to. Today.

Accuracy

Verified, aggregated data for all buildings.

Integration

Bi-directional integration with Energy Star® Portfolio Manager®.

Innovation

Ongoing application updates as requirements evolve.

Automated and Advanced Data Features

Utilibridge aggregates, delivers, and visualizes usage data for building owners and managers.  Compliance and ongoing data submission are easy, and year-over-year and full range usage are available. Users can do as much or as little as they want with their data.  

Differentiators

  • Tenant and/or unit verification 
  • Billing and/or AMI data aggregation 
  • Application stats for Admin users 
  • Flexible support model 
  • Utility tools and views 
  • Shared implementation capabilities (multiple utilities) 

Built for Users

Utility Program Managers:

  • Actionable views and reporting for targeted program outreach.  
  • Configurable workflows and approvals of building owner requests or actions, enabling customized support models. 
  • ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager® data and reports for aggregate and individual building level views. 

 

Building Owners:

  • Simple building creation, tenant confirmation, and data delivery, all while maintaining account/tenant privacy. 
  • Categorize, analyze, manage, and submit aggregated building usage data directly to ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager®, and receive data back. 
  • Identify and quantify the impact of energy efficiency projects and building retrofits in data over time.

Why it Matters.

Buildings are key to decarbonization and energy efficiency. Baseline data access is the first step. Calico’s Utilibridge™ solution creates verified building-level utility data, connecting utilities with the buildings they serve and enabling the ecosystem that powers, owns, manages, serves, regulates, and inhabits the built world. 
The increasing momentum around building focused energy policy mandates reliable access to accurate baseline date. Incomplete data renders those policies ineffective from the beginning. Evaluating energy use in a building without accurate data misses the mark.

Solution-In-Action At ComEd

With the onset of numerous regulations and incentives requiring submission of energy usage data, ComEd’s deployment, known as EUDS (Energy Usage Data System), is a success story for other utilities looking to help customers leverage the ENERGY STAR® program. Realizing the growing need for a whole building benchmarking application (and the likelihood of future regulations), ComEd launched EUDS years ahead of Chicago’s 2013 benchmarking ordinance

The EUDS tool provides a secure way for building owners and operators to access their data and manage energy usage. For its efforts, the Association of Energy Services Professionals (AESP) awarded ComEd its Outstanding Achievement in Energy Program Design & Implementation award. ComEd also received the ENERGY STAR® Special Recognition Award for Innovation in Customer Service. 

Data Delivery. Program Evolution.

The building sector accounts for around 35% of total U.S. energy consumption.* For state and local governments across the nation, building benchmarking policies are the first step in shrinking that statistic. In addition, building energy performance standards (BEPS) are taking aim at more dramatic changes. But implementation is complex, especially when it comes to handling and aggregating building data. Many utilities face a difficult choice: operate in spreadsheets, build and maintain a tool from scratch, or find a third-party solution. Many of these options only address parts of the data problem. 

Utilibridge™ is purpose-built to simplify benchmarking for utilities and building owners and managers. Unlike many solutions on the market, our building benchmarking software is designed to handle complex multi-tenant building scenarios. For building owners, the application uncovers energy insights that lead to meaningful retrofits. For utilities, it unlocks possibilities across programs.
