The California Department of General Services (DGS) recently completed installation of a neural network-based, energy management system from WebGen Systems, Cambridge, Mass., and has begun to reduce energy costs and improve energy efficiency. WebGen’s Intelligent Use of Energy (IEU) system has been installed in a variety of department-managed facilities throughout California as part of a comprehensive energy-saving program designed to proactively monitor, control, and optimize energy use in its buildings.

Combined with other energy-saving measures implemented by the DGS, the IEU system has led to a more than 20% reduction in energy use in a number of the state’s facilities. Currently, IEU is automatically regulating and controlling energy usage, in real-time, in buildings compromising as much as 4 million square feet of space.
