Encycle received recognition for its unique, data-driven Swarm Logic® HVAC energy management technology. Swarm Logic leverages the power of artificial intelligence to lower customers’ energy costs, maximize energy efficiency, simplify asset management, and reduce environmental impact. Since 2005, Encycle’s Swarm Logic technology has provided a synchronized and autonomous solution to reduce energy consumption and demand in commercial and industrial buildings by optimizing the management of HVAC systems through coordinated operations of HVAC rooftop units (RTUs). Encycle customers routinely reduce energy costs, consumption, and related carbon emissions by 10%-20% with little to no capital expense required.
“We are honored to have received this prestigious ABA award and be recognized for our contributions to energy efficiency and decarbonization,” said Steve Alexander, Encycle President and CEO. “Encycle has had numerous accomplishments over the past year, including the introduction of our autonomous Swarm IQ™ fault detection tool that adds an additional layer of HVAC asset control to our holistic HVAC energy management approach,” Alexander added. “This recognition by such an esteemed group of international peers is both humbling and motivating as it validates the innovation and results of our Swarm Logic software that has been employed as a Service-as-a-Solution (SaaS) model at thousands of locations.”
Judges acknowledged Encycle’s Swarm Logic technology as a “magnificent concept for sustainability” and “brilliant innovation.” One judge said Encycle “brings the benefits of cloud service and AI to the HVAC space” and another commented, “providing a system that helps with energy demands through AI-enhanced technology is an excellent choice.”
More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories to the American Business Awards, the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
