Las Vegas-based utility NV Energy has implemented a program using energy management software company BuildingIQ's integrated energy efficiency and automated demand response solution.

According to BuildingIQ, its cloud-based software, which incorporates predictive energy optimization, receives electronic signals from NV Energy and automatically manages demand response events for customers. BuildingIQ says the program has lowered ongoing daily HVAC energy use for customers by 10% to 18% compared to baseline usage.

The incorporation of BuildingIQ is part of NV Energy's mPowered Optimization program, in which customers receive access to the software and associated energy savings in return for participating in demand response events, BuildingIQ notes.
