Powered by Aciex™, St. Peter’s University in Jersey City participates in short-notice demand response events by automatically controlling the Co-Gen plant to balance the grid import with on-site generation. They run on solar power during afternoon peak hours and switch to low-rate grid power when the system detects that generation resources won’t meet load demands.


The Aciex™ Real-Time Energy Management Platform delivers the economic benefits of intelligent Demand Control (iDC), intelligent Demand Response (iDR), and the integration of Real-Time Pricing, and oversight of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) in Microgrids.


Investors are looking typically where the market is headed and what will lead the way. Microgrids have become more popular over the last few years, and most likely will play a larger role in the future.

We Can Support Your Efforts in Complying with Local Law 97

“Any shift towards clean energy sources offers a chance to profit.  ING Group, estimated that the shift to a low-carbon economy could require $30 trillion in new investments towards clean energy and energy efficiency worldwide.  As a result, ING aims to double its “climate finance portfolio” by 2022, the company said in its disclosure.”      NY Times

With the recent passing of Local Law 97, NYC building and commercial property owners will need a strategic and dynamic plan with regards to the management of their overall energy consumption or possibly face significant fines.

For over 20 years, EMACX® has been the solution of choice for many of NYC’s largest commercial property owners, major hospitals and hotel chains as well as other industries.  EMACX’s® proprietary software solution, ACIEX™ Platform Software, is a turnkey solution that actively and dynamically manages your entire property’s energy consumption,  In addition, ACIEX™ reduces both your energy consumption as well as green gas emissions while, at the same time, saving money.

Our clients are leading the charge in active energy reduction, and in many instances reducing their green gas emissions upwards of 5% with annual energy cost savings of up to 30%.
While many marketed solutions may promote their data collection and analytical capabilities, EMACX® is the only software solution that will not only collect and synthesize all of the relevant data but will also actively and automatically reduce your building’s energy use 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Find out how EMACX® can help you get a head start on the Local Law 97 requirements and turn your property into a high-performing building on the forefront of real-time, automated energy and green gas emission reduction.


When I was commenting on the “5 steps” of building intelligence I was trying explain that Emacx® is one of the only companies I know that provides customers with a completely functional turnkey solution. There are a LOT of other companies showing customers a pathway to closed loop control, but it is usually proposed as a multi-project phased approach and rarely gets implemented to completion.

The 5 steps typically used for intelligent energy management solutions are based on the following:

1) Data Collection and Analysis
2) System Modeling
3) Measurement and Verification
4) Automated Control
5) Human Interaction

While attending a trade show recently I asked a few of the vendors of such energy management platforms, what percentage of their customers have systems using all “5 steps” and was told that very few ever get through the 4th step: Automated Control.

My point is that there are a lot of companies proposing analytics and energy management, some with spectacular graphics and great analysis tools. If you can’t automatically close the loop with automated controls that reduce loads in a timely manner while protecting the overall functionality of the system, you are just wasting your time.
