IBM To Help GSA Track Energy Use In Federal Buildings

IBM has won a one-year contract from the General Services Administration to help the agency track energy usage at the federal government’s 50 highest energy-consuming buildings, GSA announced Monday.

The company develop a system to monitor building performance and stream data to a central facility for analysis and decision making.

GSA awarded the contract to support its smarter building strategy, aimed at saving up to $15 million in taxpayer dollars annually and cutting energy consumption in federal buildings 30 percent by 2015.

The government’s lead acquisition agency owns an estimated 182 million square feet of office space across the U.S. and commercial buildings constitute 40 percent of the country’s primary energy use, GSA said.

Thirty-two million square feet of real estate will be connected via IBM’s system, said GSA Acting Public Buildings Commissioner Linda Chero.
