In partnership with Power TakeOff and Chicago Public Schools (CPS), the Emerging Technologies Team launched a Real-Time Virtual Commissioning (VCx) pilot in late 2020. The project quantifies the impacts of integrating real-time Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) usage data into our current AESP award-winning VCx offering at select schools, helping CPS find energy-saving improvements for their building operations. Over 4 GWh of savings are expected to be generated from the first half of the pilot, which included more than 25 schools. When the pilot is complete, more than 50 locations will have undergone real-time VCx, allowing CPS to save money and energy while providing a better indoor environment for its students.
