Cortex FAQs

Sustainability targets are easier to achieve when everyone is invited to collaborate. That’s why Cortex offers unlimited seats to allow every stakeholder in the process, executives, sustainability leaders, and operating teams, to collaborate on a single platform. This aligns your teams with thorough and auditable insights into the efficiency of your operating approach.

From replacing LEDs to installing new chillers to upgrading the building envelope, there are myriad ways to improve energy efficiency in your portfolio. The easiest and most cost-effective way to reduce energy costs and emissions is through technology-driven operational excellence. An energy management system (EMS) like Cortex adds a layer of intelligence to your BMS to allow you to move from basic energy monitoring to energy optimization.

Learn more about how technology can drive operational excellence.

There are four broad areas where our software can support your operating team in driving energy efficiency at your building:

Morning startup recommendations identify the optimal start time each day and confirm that the recommendations are followed. Using real-time data and machine learning, our recommendations are typically more aggressive than your BMS allowing you to come to temperature at the right time rather than hours before.

Daily operational monitoring through tools like the Duct Static Pressure Setpoint Analyzer helps building teams understand if AHU setpoints may need adjustment so the building runs at peak efficiency.

Afternoon coasting recommendations provide building engineering teams with clear guidance on when to scale back operations on specific pieces of equipment like AHUs.

Overnight operations are a significant area of opportunity for most buildings. Cortex helps identify and address energy usage outside of lease obligations to reduce equipment runtime and energy waste.

The best way to know if Cortex is right for your building engineering team is to have a demo. Ask for a demo today.

Cortex is a low-cost, quick-out-of-the-blocks approach to energy efficiency. As a software-first solution, we typically see results roll in within three to six months of setup. Unlike top-down platforms, we empower the change-makers in your building, your building engineers, with real-time, validated recommendations that drive action.
