In today’s data driven world, what if you had a ubiquitous communications tool that could “do it all?” The VOLTTRON™ open-source software platform offers an environment where data and devices connect seamlessly and securely to make decisions based on user needs and preferences.

We're working to deploy VOLTTRON™ in a big way in buildings, where it will collect and send building automation system data to the cloud for further analysis in order to optimize building system operations.

The open source component of VOLTTRON™ is revolutionary; it gives many residential and small commercial buildings a chance to be smart, while allowing all of us to contribute to the technology.

I've worked with agency software in the past but VOLTTRON™ was by far the most intuitive and 'batteries-included' of them all!

PNNL has done a pretty amazing job of making a tool that's both comprehensive enough to remove the major pain points from system design, but also flexible enough to allow the user's creativity to flourish.

Most building automation systems work with fixed settings for a maximum number of occupants and fixed schedules. With VOLTTRON™, we built an agent that changes system operations to dynamic occupation based on organizational data. The agent pulls classroom schedules and building data, then controls the variable air volume box to deliver dynamic airflow according to the registered number of students.

Instead of using a commercial occupancy sensor, we built a driver in VOLTTRON™ to connect a $2 motion sensor. We estimate our low-cost VOLTTRON™ solution can save 20% on energy and make building occupants much more comfortable.

We think VOLTTRON™ can play a large role as a middleware platform for enabling smart-energy-analytics.
