Since the recession in the mid-2000’s, the U.S. as a whole has made significant steps toward lowering its carbon emissions. In California, the California Energy Commission is the primary energy policy and planning agency, committed to helping individuals and organizations reduce their energy costs and environmental impact while maintaining a safe, reliable, and long-lasting supply of energy.
The standards outlined by California’s Energy Commission in Title 24 are updated every three years, aiming to improve upon the standards set in 2013, while continuing to reduce energy consumption and contribute toward reducing carbon dioxide emissions across the world. Two specific aspects of reducing carbon footprint are outlined in the standards, these include controlling space temperature and controlling lighting and plug loads.
Although the standards do not give clear recommendations on how to achieve the above, Telkonet, Inc. (OTCQB: TKOI), a company committed to sustainable product innovation and technological expertise, believes it has the answer. The company feels that implementing a single product able to work as an energy management system, with intelligent sensors and controllers that operate through a cloud-based command center, is far more efficient than using diverse products from numerous manufacturers.
With this in mind, Telkonet has developed EcoSmart, a revolutionary intelligent automation platform that works with a full suite of connected IoT (Internet Of Things) products and gives customers in-depth energy usage information, control, and analytics. The platform, made up of wireless devices, offers real-time reporting whereby it can track progress toward an individual’s or company’s energy efficiency goals.
Telkonet believes EcoSmart could be the solution to Title 24 compliance, as it is an all-in-one platform that allows clients to achieve a perfect balance between energy efficiency and occupant comfort. The EcoSmart system decreases energy usage in unoccupied spaces so that it doesn’t affect tenants living or working in the space. The solution is perfect for unpredictable spaces, such as hotels, university residences, offices, and others.
