At the Trane booth, #2309, NFMT attendees also can learn about the Trane Building Advantage™ suite of energy services offerings which assists facility managers with managing and operating efficient and sustainable buildings. The collection of offerings helps building managers recognize their buildings as assets by providing choices for delivering bottom-line financial results and furthering completion of regulatory requirements. Trane Building Advantage capabilities include:

Energy Management Systems and Services achieved through Trane Intelligent Services, which is a comprehensive portfolio of building energy management services that process information for review, facilitate analysis to show how much and when a building consumes energy, and help develop and implement strategies to control energy and operational costs.

Building Controls and Automation includes Trane Tracer™ building automation which provides the technology platform for the next generation of data-driven, technology-enabled services that are creating intelligent buildings. The Trane booth at NFMT will feature:

  • Trane® Tracer Concierge™, an automation system that simplifies day-to-day operation of building heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and lighting systems, with one easy-to-use interface. Concierge provides the ability to easily manage multiple rooms and HVAC and lighting equipment from one interface, so users get advanced control capabilities compared to programmable thermostats

Renewable Energy and Power Solutions are clean energy alternatives such as wind, solar, co-generation and waste-to-power, which can help building owners and operators increase their energy autonomy and fulfill regulatory or other sustainability obligations. These socially responsible solutions can reduce costs while improving the reliability of the energy source.

Energy contracting is a funding option that provides measurable business results to support strategic organizational objectives.
