Infometrics (now Analytika) service to be available to state agencies, municipal governments, and others

Boston, MA – December 3, 2007- Cimetrics Inc. announced today that the company has been selected by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to provide energy advisory services in facilities statewide. Cimetrics is among those firms qualified to reduce building operating costs through the Division of Capital Asset Management (DCAM), also providing the service to municipal governments, state agencies, authorities and non-profits throughout Massachusetts.

Cimetrics’ Infometrics service offers remote continuous building monitoring and analysis. Large facilities commonly use building automation systems to manage heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment. The Infometrics service gathers information from thousands of points (sensors, actuators and valves) throughout the HVAC system and provides expert analysis and prioritized recommendations for reducing building energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

An April, 2007 Executive Order (“Leading By Example – Clean Energy and Efficient Buildings”) issued by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick calls for greater energy efficiency in state buildings. According to the Governor’s office, in Massachusetts, state agencies consume over 1 billion kilowatt hours of electricity, 22 million gallons of heating oil, and 46 million therms of natural gas annually, resulting in emission of 1 million tons of carbon dioxide – the equivalent of 200,000 automobiles. The Governor has “insisted that state government “lead by example.”, going on to say, “That means doing far more to constrain energy consumption...”

Infometrics will enable state facilities to meet the Governor’s mandate to reduce energy consumption 20% from 2002 levels by 2012 and reduce greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2012. By employing sophisticated analysis and delivering prioritized recommendations, Infometrics offers its clients the ability to sustainably reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions without sacrificing comfort. In addition, Infometrics reduces maintenance costs by providing prioritized lists of issues which can be integrated into work order software. Infometrics reports quantify the annual energy cost of each issue discovered and the CO2 emissions which will be avoided by remediating it. Infometrics analysts will work directly with state agencies to assess each facility on an ongoing basis.

Current clients include universities, hospitals, labs, hotels and federal facilities.

Jim Lee, CEO of Cimetrics, says, “We're particularly pleased to offer services to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, our home state, and look forward to enabling state facilities to meet and exceed the Governor’s energy and greenhouse gas emissions reductions mandates.”
