The City Benchmarking Program is designed to automate compliance management, reporting, and data analysis for cities managing Energy Star Portfolio Manager® based benchmarking initiatives. Developed in collaboration with the City of Chicago and Institute for Market Transformation to manage benchmarking report data for over 3,000 buildings, the City Benchmarking Program minimizes administration costs and enables on-demand data analysis and reporting. This Program also automates the generation of intuitive energy-use comparison reports driven by the Architecture2030 ZeroTool and Zero Energy Performance Index (zEPI). By automating the compliance management and reporting process, Maalka maximizes program engagement and impact and minimizes cost.
The Firstview™ Portfolio Diagnostics Program is ideal for cities and municipalities that want to save money and time as they improve the energy efficiency of their building portfolios. The Program is driven by industry leading analytics developed over two decades by the New Buildings Institute (NBI) and supported by Maalka data collection, validation, and reporting capabilities. Each building in the Program will receive an automated NBI FirstView™ Report, which provides data-driven performance comparisons to similar buildings across the country and advanced analytics that help your city prioritize energy efficiency investments and improvement strategies. With the Portfolio Diagnostics Program, you can follow an established EE framework adopted by cities across the U.S.
The KAVA™ Energy Efficiency Analysis Program helps you set energy efficiency investment and improvement strategies for buildings across your portfolio. The powerful KAVA™ engine automatically creates a fully calibrated energy model for each building in your portfolio and tests thousands of scenarios to determine the most cost-effective way to reduce energy-use and save money across your portfolio. Co-developed with the Department of Energy National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), KAVA™ is the most accurate and powerful simulation based tool on the market.
Designed in collaboration with the Award Winning Retrofit Chicago team, the Better Buildings Challenge Program is perfect for cities and organizations that are tracking progress towards energy-use and emissions reduction goals. Maalka automates the generation of truly engaging reports that communicate progress towards goals and provide alerts to building stakeholders if they are off track. Powerful built-in data validation and analytics enable progress tracking that aligns with Department of Energy Better Buildings Challenge guidelines, allowing individual baselines to be managed for each building and progress to be compared across buildings in the Program. With Maalka, program administrators can maximize engagement with building stakeholders to assure that goals are reached.
