Lucid to join Acuity Brands

Feb 12, 2018

Will collaborate to create the first end-to-end SaaS building intelligence platform February 12, 2018 10:27 ET | Source: Lucid Design Group OAKLAND, Calif., Feb. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lucid, provider of the most comprehensive SaaS intelligence platform for building operations, today announced it has been acquired by Acuity Brands, Inc (NYSE: AYI ), a leading provider of intelligent lighting, building automation systems, and IoT solutions. Over the last decade Lucid has developed the leading platform for building performance analytics, BuildingOS. The acquisition will enable Lucid to accelerate the continued development of the BuildingOS platform to integrate all facets of building data and expand the applications built on the platform. Lucid will leverage Acuity Brands’ extensive investments in building sensor networks, integration, and controls to extend the capabilities of the platform. Together, BuildingOS and Acuity Brands will transform the way building data is used and unleash the value of intelligent building solutions. Lucid will continue to grow BuildingOS as an independent and open platform, and will continue to be led by current executives including CEO Will Coleman and Co-Founder Vladi Shunturov. As Lucid joins the Acuity Technology Group, it will continue to extend its data integration, analytic, and workflow capabilities, leveraging Acuity Brand’s technology assets and install base to provide expanded solutions across new applications and segments. Acuity Brands’ investment in Lucid represents a significant step forward in unlocking the value of IoT within buildings by connecting the dots between advanced sensory network solutions and the broader integrated building data required to drive better operational and business decisions. Lucid’s BuildingOS enables owners, operators, and occupants to find powerful insights in their building data to make buildings more efficient and improve the performance of the people and businesses that rely on them. “This will allow us to accelerate our mission to enable organizations to harness building data and deliver better buildings,” said Will Coleman, CEO, Lucid, Inc. “We are excited by the partnership with Acuity Brands and the opportunity to leverage Acuity’s broad IoT and control capabilities to deliver a more complete solution to our customers and overcome some of the fundamental hurdles associated with IoT deployment and integration.” Buildings are being transformed by data and intelligent systems in the same way as every other industry. Hundreds of billions in unnecessary costs, lost revenue, and productivity are at stake. Acuity Brands’ digital lighting-based sensory networks and Atrius software platform combined with the intelligence that Lucid’s BuildingOS can provide will unlock the value of the expanding IoT landscape. “I am thrilled for Lucid to join Acuity Brands, as we extend the power of our digital networked lighting, building management and IoT solutions,” said Laurent J. Vernerey, President of Acuity Technology Group. “We have the sensory networks, control systems, and IoT integration solutions, and Lucid now allows us to unlock the power of all that data through cloud-based analytics and applications. Lucid’s BuildingOS platform will be central to our investment in the IoT space, and unlocking the value of smart lighting solutions.” Lucid and Acuity Brands share a vision for an open and integrated smart building platform that leverages best in class technologies and empowers owners, operators, and occupants to improve their building performance and business performance. The power of a building analytics platform is its ability to integrate data from across systems. While Lucid will now be able to leverage the digital lighting networks, sensors, and control capabilities being developed and deployed by Acuity Brands, Lucid will remain an independent and open platform focused on integrating data from any data source within or associated with a building. Lucid has built integrations into over 180 different building data systems and services from utility data to building automation systems, sub-metering, work order systems, and property management solutions. The platform will continue to be data source agnostic and focus on the power of analytics applied to integrated data streams. Acuity Brands’ investment in Lucid will help support the continued expansion of the platform and accelerate the company’s growth. About Lucid Lucid provides a data and analytics platform to make data-driven decisions to improve building efficiency and drive better building and business performance. Lucid's SaaS-based BuildingOS platform is deployed in more than 500 organizations, 15,000 buildings and 1.5 billion square feet of commercial buildings. It empowers thousands of professionals at every level of the customer organization to improve energy efficiency, reduce costs, manage capital decisions, and drive business performance from their buildings.

Clarian Technologies

Starting with automated transit systems (subway, ART system, monorail, people movers, etc.), Clarian has developed technologies to provide real-time optimization of energy consumption using rate control and power modulation technologies that supplement existing safety-critical onboard and wayside ATC controls as well enable presence-awareness in vehicles so that they can operate in unison, rather than autonomously as they do today. These capabilities in turn create broader network energy efficiencies, smoother ride and reduced wear and tear, increased capacity, and reduced rolling stock and power infrastructure requirements.As part of its research and development efforts, Clarian has developed a suite of energy modeling and simulation tools. These tools can be used by transit agencies and/or system operators as part of either the design process or operational configuration to optimize or re-configure existing operations to begin realizing immediate energy cost-savings.

Hexaformer's technology aims to make it possible to manufacture closed symmetrical delta shaped transformer cores. Per the company, it does this by winding the transformer core instead of stacking sheets of metal. The benefits according to the company of this design to transformers include: a lower load loss, lighter, smaller volume, less vibrations, less noise, smaller electromagnetic stray fields, lower inrush current, and no third harmonic. The same type of technology is also used in the Hexaformer reactors for phase compensation. These cores are also wound to a triangular shape on which three coils are mounted to make the solutions small, yet efficient. The benefits per Hexaformer of this transformer technology include reducing the losses in the electricity grid as well as lowering the cost of operation and maintenance by 5% to 15% compared to traditional transformers.

Encycle Logo

Encycle, formerly REGEN, provides an Energy as a Service by Encycle (EASE) solution that maximizes the performance of RTUs to save commercial and industrial companies money while reducing their carbon footprint. Based on patented Swarm Logic technology, Encycle's platform uses biomimicry techniques to reduce HVAC energy costs, participate in Demand Response programs, and gain valuable insight into RTU performance.
