SPARC520 to Showcase Energy Strategy & Engagement Successes at Greenbuild

Charleston, SC, Nov 13, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- SPARC announced today it will attend the 2012 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo to showcase its energy strategy and engagement platform, SPARC520. 520 monitors real-time energy consumption and forecasts savings opportunities. SPARC will give away a free 520 Rapid Portfolio Assessment (RPA) at the conclusion of next week's conference.

SPARC520, named for the wavelength at which the human eye perceives light as green, is a software platform that empowers decision makers with the tools needed to understand and reduce energy consumption and costs in their buildings and minimize their environmental impact. 520's advanced energy analytics, backed by nationally recognized energy analysts and thought leaders in mathematics and technology, offers users the insight needed to explore optimal energy strategies, identify energy performance goals, and define and execute a strategy to reach those goals.

"520 keeps a constant finger on the pulse of you building, providing you valuable insight into how the building is performing now and how you can improve its performance. 520 is a key tool to complement any efficiency investments and keep you moving closer to your green goals," said Ben Leigh, an Energy Analyst on the SPARC team.

Greenbuild, the world's largest green building conference, brings building professionals from all over the world together to discuss cutting edge tools and strategies to build and operate more efficient buildings. 520 benefits both efficient and inefficient buildings, offering a wide range of tools from energy modeling on improvement strategies, to real-time data monitoring that ensures efficiency investments are recognized and paying off.

Greenbuild attendees can enter for a chance to win a free 520 Rapid Portfolio Assessment. The 520 Rapid Portfolio Assessment requires only utility bills and addresses for a portfolio of buildings. At a fraction of the time and cost of conventional building audits, energy experts use the RPA to perform a high-level audit of an entire portfolio's performance. This virtual audit is an interactive tool which identifies opportunities for focused improvements and allows decision makers to gain the strategic foresight needed to make calculated energy decisions.

"Understanding your buildings' energy performance at a high level is a great first step to a successful energy management strategy. With this portfolio view you can confidently create an energy strategy that works best for you and gives you the best and fastest return on your investments," said Jeff Beck, SPARC520 Product Owner.
