Cortex FAQs

Absolutely! We understand the importance of complying with existing building performance regulations like LL97, BERDO, and SB 253, as well as preparing for upcoming standards as regulations gain momentum. That’s why we have designed our platform to support your compliance efforts.

Cortex isn’t just about compliance; it’s about excellence and efficiency in managing your building assets. We pinpoint low-cost and no-cost energy reduction opportunities—from optimal start-up/shut-down sequencing to continuous commissioning and demand management. These strategies not only enhance operational efficiency but also cut energy use by 10-20%, reducing both carbon emissions and costs. With Cortex, you’re set up to drive operational excellence and meet regulatory requirements.

Yes, we will help you navigate incentive programs like ConEd’s RTEM program and NYSERDA’s RTEM + Tenant 1.0 program wherever they’re available. These programs can help offset the costs associated with reducing carbon emissions. This makes it even easier for you to meet your carbon reduction targets and regulatory obligations.

Cortex not only drives sustainable change but also makes sure that these wins can be effectively communicated to investors. Automated monthly reports on usage, costs, and energy savings, along with executive summaries showcasing your long-term savings trends are accessible anytime through the Cortex dashboard. The data that drives these reports also meets external reporting requirements like GRESB and Energy Star. Should you need something more specific, our Customer Success team is ready and available to work with you to get the data you need to demonstrate progress.

At Cortex, we believe the best investment in energy management is one that empowers the real change-makers: your building engineers. Cortex delivers real-time, validated recommendations that your team can act on. This puts control directly in the hands of those who manage your building’s energy use.
