Last month, I posted a long overdue update on the Energy Use in the Office Proof of Concept we’ve been working on. I wanted to give you quick status update as we’ve reached a major milestone. As I mentioned last month, for this proof of concept, we’re using a third party tool to “soft meter” individual’s PCs. The client portion of that tool was pushed to the proof of concept population this week and we’ll be starting the baseline collection period on Monday! This has been a long time coming and I’m very excited about finally reaching this stage of the project.
We’ll establish the baseline over the following 30 days and then formally launch the employee interaction phase of the PoC. Stay tuned for another update at that point.
By the way, I hope to release an external paper fully covering the project and results in early Q3.
