In early 2017, 10 innovative clean technology startups were selected to join the Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN2). The 10 early-stage companies include a diverse mix of technologies designed to advance energy and water efficiency…
J2 Innovations empowers companies to derive value from the connected world. Their FIN (Fluid INtegration) Framework software combines the core functionality of a building automation system (BAS) for connecting and controlling devices with the added benefits of a building operating system (BOS) to manage and leverage data. The technology requires less labor to deploy solutions through the innovative use of tagging and data modeling.
Hardware and/or software technologies actively manage resources or enable resources to communicate with one another.
Buildings today are more connected than ever before and have an increasing number of smart devices, but unfortunately, much of the data exists as islands of information. Customers want to leverage this big data but find it too difficult and costly. The FIN Framework brings together all systems in the building, making it faster and easier to implement energy reduction strategies in commercial buildings. Through continuous fault detection and diagnostics (FDD) routines, FIN software optimizes the BAS and BOS to reduce the energy impact on the built environment.
HOW IN2 IS HELPING
J2 Innovations has received help developing a critical component to the FIN Framework to meet an immediate market need for FDD with the associated visualization to show energy savings opportunities. This module complements the existing functionality and vice versa. NREL researchers provided guidance for their breakthrough technology and advanced sequences to enable a greater number of buildings to benefit from FDD functionality and sustainable energy savings.
