The U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) has partnered with Pacific Controls (PCS), an automation solution company based in Dubai, to develop technology aimed at reducing energy use in buildings.

The Building Research Incubator project will evaluate the integration of LBNL's focus areas - including energy simulation, automated demand response, advanced electric metering and communication technologies - using PCS' Galaxy platform. Launched in 2011, Galaxy is an enterprise service delivery platform hosted on the Pacific Controls Cloud.

“Pacific Controls is funding for research staff to access real-time building data and access all major projects as a research partner in managed energy services and demand response,” says Dilip Rahulan, executive chairman of  PCS. “The partnership will strive to develop new technology solutions and standards that would help reduce energy consumption in buildings worldwide.”
