Callida Energy is out to reduce commercial buildings’ energy waste and the billions of dollars in associated costs by taking a predictive approach to regulating electrical and fuel usage. While most buildings currently operate in a reactive way, which tends to be inefficient, Callida uses measurements like occupancy and weather forecasts for the upcoming day to suggest heating and cooling schedules that regulate the building’s temperature more efficiently throughout the day. It makes use pre-cooling strategies, for instance, turning on the air for a period in the morning when electricity is cheaper so it doesn’t have to spike in the afternoon.
