Setpoint Systems Corporation and Coppertree Analytics Announce New Strategic Partnership

Littleton, Colorado November 25, 2013

Since 1983, Setpoint Systems Corporation, an independent integrator of building control systems has been uniquely positioned to offer fully integrated system solutions on a common communications network. Their diverse and dynamic portfolio includes: 40+ story high-rise commercial office buildings, 1000+ room hotels, university campuses, K-12 school districts, hospitals, 40-megawatt data centers, top-secret military facilities, jails and prisons, and major league sports stadiums.

“Our customers are seeking to maximize every area of their buildings and facilities. We strive to provide optimal and collaborative solutions for their project. CopperTrees’ approach to analytics is focused on gaining insight into large and complex data sets in order to reach your building’s maximum potential.” – Aaron Nahale, CEO, Setpoint Systems Corporation

CopperTree Analytics’ approach was driven out of frustration with “smart” buildings not delivering on the promise of intelligent and efficient operation. From its inception, the team at CopperTree knew there must be better ways to operate buildings, and they made it their mission to make buildings easier to monitor, diagnose, improve, and manage.

About Coppertree Analytics:
For more than 30 years, Coppertree’s parent companies – Delta Controls (one of the largest independent building controls manufacturers) and ESC (Western Canada’s largest building systems integrator) – have been at the forefront of creating SMART buildings. Long before ‘sustainable’ was a buzz word, the founders were involved in energy audits and consulting; and so it was a natural extension to create Coppertree in response to the growing demand for building energy management services.

Our heritage means we combine an implicit understanding of the technology, which controls buildings with the practicalities of maintaining them – so you get a solution, which delivers genuine energy savings. Know your energy issues – Fix what is broken.

Put simply, Coppertree analytics provides energy management and fault detection diagnostics as software-as-a-service, which delivers you the power to optimize your building performance.

We were frustrated how SMART buildings aren’t delivering on the promise ‘intelligent’ buildings inspired and we know we can fix that. Our mission is to lessen the climate changing impact of buildings by making them easier to monitor and manage.

Based outside Vancouver, a city with a booming tech sector, we share a similar profile being young and multicultural. Our average age is 33, and diverse cultural backgrounds from Vietnam and India to Ireland and Russia. Learn more at coppertreeanalytics.com.

Operational Effectiveness

How well your sites are managed operationally makes a big difference to how much they cost to run and how productive your people and process are able to be. Coppertree algorithms reach deep into your buildings’ performance giving you far more powerful insights to be able to optimize the resources you allocate to maintenance, and protect the value you have locked in these physical assets.
Resource Optimization

How do you know if you are getting value for money from the budgets you allocate to keeping your buildings running? Largely you judge this based upon ‘down time costs’ or perhaps the number of complaints or issues being resolved. Coppertree is able to give you live data which can help your operations team prioritize their time, and maintenance budgets, more efficiently by focusing attention on problems the system indicates often before they cause serious consequences. Think of Coppertree as the enabling ‘just in time’ maintenance with all the efficiencies that brings like longer equipment life, less routine servicing, and lower energy costs.

Asset Value

Your buildings and equipment probably add up to a sizable sum on your balance sheet – they are expensive to purchase and short cuts in maintenance investments come back to bite you. Wouldn’t it be nice to know you were carefully protecting those assets but at the lowest possible cost without it impacting you later? With Coppertree you can target your spending and carefully control your environment (and prove it) by monitoring your system to constantly evolve a ‘golden standard’ (building optimization). You have a window into your building performance which tells you, what has happened where and indicates where you need to make changes, so you can make the most of what you have.

Productivity

Facilities staff have to balance urgent requests with important maintenance cycles, and if you’ve delved into their offices you’ll have seen the range of systems they need to monitor and the post it note reminders plastered about – help them see the forest for the trees with some clarity provided by Coppertree Analytics.

Energy Efficiency

As every CEO knows ‘you get what you measure’ and that is especially true with energy management because it requires changes to behaviors, processes and site management to cut energy use. Leading a ‘green company’ means having easily accessible and accurate metrics which result in specific functional actions – if energy measures are not constantly visible they slip down the priority list. So it is important to make it as easy as possible for your staff to get the essential information they need for their roles – Coppertree will do this for you.

Reduce Consumption

By measuring your energy use, reporting it widely and acting on it energy savings of 20 to 33% are reported. This doesn’t happen by itself unfortunately but Coppertree gives you the understanding of which part of your building systems are using the most energy and can be optimized, and which can be powered down in certain conditions. Many larger companies have a dedicated energy manager on staff, this is becoming a more common role because generally the energy savings they facilitate more than covers their costs. Coppertree is provides invaluable insights with drill down details for these roles which makes energy management far easier to implement (so quicker payback). However if energy management isn’t a dedicated role within your organization Coppertree can help your facilities manage release many energy savings themselves.

Calculate Savings

On every investment, and your buildings are significant ones, you want to know the return. Where costs are under scrutiny Coppertree helps you defend maintenance expenditures by helping you target them specifically and demonstrate energy savings. You can see energy usages trends for sites, or individual system components to make it clear the progress you are making to reduce energy consumption.

Access Government Rebate

Coppertree can help you access valuable peak demand energy rebates, our team can help find out what energy utilities require in your area, and with Coppertree insights you’ll know which non-core systems can be powered down to cut peak demand to meet the thresholds required. Demonstrating energy savings plans can also make your business eligible for a number of special grants and tax breaks in some regions – Coppertree gives you all the data you need to demonstrate how much you are savings and how continuous commissioning will continue to progress your energy efficiency plan.

Corporate Responsibility

It can seem an expensive commitment to make a more sustainable organization a reality; in part this is because behavioral change is required. People don’t think green at work and automatically conserve resources as they would at home – Coppertree dashboards make your sustainability agenda very visible and have been proven to improve energy savings. Reporting on energy progress is also very valuable when it comes to writing the annual report to substantiate your CSR initiatives with real quantifiable data to avoid any ‘green-wash’ accusations

Carbon Footprint

Collectively the world’s buildings are worse Carbon users than all of the world’s cars. That may seem surprising but then consider your energy bills and how you spend heating or cooling your site. We all know that climate change is a reality we need to deal with now, for the sake of future generations, and businesses have a significant part to play in actively reducing the carbon they use. It can seem a hard road to start down but Coppertree can be a simple first step, which can not only highlight many energy saving opportunities available in your building but report on the progress you are making to measure the energy you save.

Alternative Energy

Energy can come from many different sources and Coppertree is able to be configured to show you the different energy inputs your building uses and measure each separately. You can be confident your renewable contribution will be tracked and measured, and when appropriate record how much and when you were able to sell energy back into the grid. Transparent energy usage reporting is a click away with Coppertree.

Aligning Goals

You can use Coppertree to help align the goals of your energy manager and you facilities managers, whom can often have conflicting objectives – lower energy usage Vs cool occupant comfort in summer. Because Coppertree can be a shared energy platform accessed by multiple users in your organization you can set shared key performance indicators visible to all. You can print and export energy reports to use in internal communications or display the dashboards in public areas to demonstrate the commitment your organization is making to carbon reduction via energy management. The experience has been that your employees will become far more engaged and contribute by changing their behaviors if you actively demonstrate progress towards clear energy targets. Coppertree gives you the perfect platform with accurate data and varied displays to set a target and track progress towards it.
