Technology that matters

International technology giant IBM has acquired Envizi, a leading data and analytics software provider for environmental performance management.

“Companies are under mounting pressure from regulators, investors, and consumers to progress toward more sustainable and socially responsible business operations,” says IBM, “and to demonstrate these measures in a robust and verifiable way. However, the various types of data companies need to understand and report on sustainability initiatives remains highly fragmented and difficult for all relevant parties to access.” 

Envizi’s software automates the collection and consolidation of more than 500 data types and supports major sustainability reporting frameworks. 

“IBM prides itself on building ‘Technology that Matters’,” says Envizi CEO and co-founder David Solsky. “That couldn’t be truer with respect to the investment in Envizi. Helping businesses and government to decarbonise and become more sustainable is what continues to matter most to the team at Envizi, and we are here to support our clients and partners every step of the journey.”

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

The HVAC-related energy usage of a group of three existing buildings on a Canadian university campus (the “Cluster”) was simulated. Two scenarios were compared: (1) an ambient loop paired with conventional HVAC equipment (boiler plant and cooling tower), and (2) an ambient loop using wastewater energy transfer (“WET”). The study aimed to assess the feasibility of implementing WET as a heating and cooling method for cold-climate institutional buildings, as well as to measure the effects of WET implementation on energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy costs
