    • 1. EnviroGrid ™ Energy Management Naturally ™ Take your world by swarm™
    • 2. EnviroGrid’s reduces energy usage and costs for a wide span of buildings
    • 3. The inspiration for EnviroGrid’s Swarm Logic PHEROMONE TRAILS FORAGING, DEFENSE, NEST MAINTENANCE ACHIEVEMENT OF HIVE GOALS SUSTAINABILITY Insects with simple brains Decisions based on environment Emergent Swarm Behaviour Hive Survival
    • 4. EnviroGrid Customer Portal EnviroGrid Web 2.0 APIs HVAC Using a ZigBee network, controllers allow electrical loads to “talk to each other” in a swarm Each controller makes a decision every few minutes to ensure the most efficient use of energy Controllers broadcast power readings to each other every 2 minutes Controllers and monitored and adjusted via a web based portal A Gateway provides 2-way Internet communications without the need to access the site’s IP network. Power readings and controller decisions are uploaded to the Server every 5 minutes. HVAC HVAC HVAC EnviroGrid Server

      • EnviroGrid “dials down” duty cycles
      • Maintains occupant comfort better than t-stat setback
      • Eliminates DR rebound
      • Provides improved fault resilience over BAS
      Using swarm logic for Demand Response provides peak reduction while minimizing impact on comfort T-stat rebound Immediate increase EnviroGrid DR Thermostat Setback Power InteriorTemp./Humidity
