By integrating building operations with energy markets, CUE’s proprietary software leverages a building’s thermal mass, environmental data, carbon emissions and electric market prices to:

  • Reduce HVAC energy use and expense up to 30 percent;
  • Improve electric generation efficiency and environmental performance; and
  • Introduce demand elasticity into grid markets.

For building owners and managers – CUE executes a strategy designed to maximize efficiency and tenant comfort while also reducing costs, extending equipment life, and supporting corporate sustainability goals.

For utilities and grid operators – CUE converts commercial buildings into large-scale thermal energy storage for the urban smart grid. CUE technology creates, aggregates, and manages distributed sources of load, generation, and storage in real-time, optimally balancing supply and demand while improving grid reliability and utilizing renewable energy resources such as wind power, which is generated in greater amounts at night.
