First View energy efficiency analytic tool is the industry standard for providing a baseline analysis of facility energy usage. FirstView® software and services enable building owners, energy efficiency professionals and designers to extract more targeted and useful energy performance information from basic data inputs. With monthly utility bills and a few building characteristics a building energy model can be created that can quickly diagnose opportunities for improvement and compare a building’s performance against peers. Purchasing this product will grant you access to the FirstView web tool for a certain number of building analyses (you can adjust the quantities of each package on the next page). Your access to the web tool also includes one hour of customized training and support. If you are interested in more than 25 building analyses please contact email@example.com.
Part of Solution
The majority of commercial buildings have little or no readily available feedback on energy performance. Utility bills provide some insight, but their potential to target particular areas for energy savings is limited. Currently, other tools provide only general benchmarking information or require extensive data input. Developed by New Buildings Institute and tested on thousands of buildings, the FirstView tool automatically creates a simplified building energy model that can quickly diagnose opportunities for improvement and automatically compare a building’s performance against peers. Using only monthly utility bills and a few building characteristics, NBI’s FirstView software and services can help move beyond a static benchmarking score allowing you to invest audit resources where they will be most effective.
FirstView is now available for multifamily buildings.
