Crate & Barrel Project Wins "Best in Show" Award
At this year's Facilities Decisions Conference & Expo, Carrier was presented with the "Best in Show" award by BACnet International. BACnet International presented the award as part of its annual "Leaders of the Pack" program to recognize the achievements of individuals and companies involved in the BACnet community. The Award Ceremony took place during the 2011 Facility Decisions Conference & Expo on October 11-12, 2011 in Las Vegas, NV.
The "Best in Show Award" goes to a project posted as a BACnet Success Story. When asked how Carrier's Crate & Barrel project was chosen as "Best in Show", Michael R. Wilson, Marketing Chair of BACnet International, explained that, "this LEED Gold project with a recognized retail industry leader is the ideal example of what we want submitted as a BACnet Success Story. It identifies the project challenges and solutions. It is a clear, cogent, compelling and well-composed narrative. It identifies BACnet as the key to success on this project. It contains customer and integrator quotations. It identifies all contributing firms, consultants, integrators, contractors and manufacturers with hyperlinks to their web sites.

Distech Controls' EC-NetAX EnerVue Web-based Energy Management Dashboard Provides Actionable Analytics that Drive Business Decisions
Distech Controls, a leading provider of building automation and energy management solutions today announced the availability of EC-NetAX EnerVue Web-based energy management dashboard. EC-NetAX EnerVue provides proven visualization of vital building metrics through an easy-to-use, browser-based dashboard application.
EC-NetAX EnerVue allows users to quickly identify issues, assess relationships, and take action in order to optimize resource efficiencies and sustainability, and ultimately increase energy and operational cost savings across their building portfolio. The application makes use of, and converts into graphics and reports, large amounts of real-time and historical data available in Distech Controls' EC-NetAX Web-based multi-protocol building management system.
EC-NetAX EnerVue is appropriate for a broad choice of users responsible for controlling, monitoring, and conserving energy in a building, from owners/operators, to energy managers, to consulting engineers.
Suited for single or multiple site installations, EC-NetAX EnerVue allows building managers, energy managers, and executives to identify the greatest opportunities to reduce energy costs, validate capital upgrades, and track their return on investment (ROI). Equally useful for both new buildings, as well as retrofits, EC-NetAX EnerVue enables quick identification of locations that are deviating from their past performance, or operating outside the norm for similar structures.
"EC-NetAX EnerVue provides building owners and managers with all the graphical intelligence they need to improve the energy performance of their facilities," comments Ahmed Hirani, Executive Vice President of Sales. "By reducing volumes of data into visual knowledge, graphs, and reports, EC-NetAX EnerVue allows users to rapidly identify trends, as well as real-time facility and enterprise data, to greatly facilitate business decisions."
Through an extensive library of viewlets, EC-NetAX EnerVue can be easily customized for an individual user's unique needs and requirements, enabling them to focus on current or rapidly changing conditions for their area of responsibility. Viewlets are available for various data, histories, and metrics, including energy trends, building comparisons, weather data, network status, consumption efficiencies, key performance indices (KPIs), and more.

BACnet International Marketing Committee Member
Why do you volunteer in BACnet International?
I have been involved in promoting open protocols and integration opportunities for over 15 years. It is exciting to see how the market has transpired from proprietary protocols to open protocols, with BACnet now being the dominant player. I used to spend most of my time focusing on the technical aspects of integration and the difficulties involved, so it is refreshing to see how so many key players have come together to promote and support interoperability through the BACnet protocol. Because of this, I truly enjoy promoting a "common" language that the rest of the industry is embracing. BACnet International provides the foundation for promoting this "common" language, and fosters industry and customer awareness of all that BACnet has to offer.
