3 Customer Portal Swarm Energy Management Web 2.0 APIs A ZigBee network allows Controllers to talk to each other in a swarm. Each Controller makes a decision every 10 minutes. Controllers measure power readings every 30 seconds. Controllers are monitored and adjusted via a web based portal. E ASILY D EPLOYED USING Y OUR E XISTING HVAC S ERVICE T EAM, WITHOUT IT M ODIFICATIONS Swarm Energy Cloud A Gateway provides Internet communication without the need to access the sites network. Power readings and decisions are uploaded every 5 minutes. HVAC LIGHTING ELECTRIC HEATING PUMPS

9 S WARM E NERGY M ANAGEMENT B ENEFITS Reduces Peak Demand while Maintaining Comfort (~15-25% = 25-40kW) Provides Intelligent Demand Response, incl. AutoDR (adtl. ~20-50kW)Minimizes Off-Hours Consumption (~10-30% = 35, ,000 kWH/year)Remote Monitoring and Scheduling with Ability to Lock Out ThermostatsRapid ROI for a Building Enhancement Sample Building: 20 RTUs, avg tons & 180kW 700 S.
