IBM deploys its Tririga building sustainability suite for the U.K. Ministry of Defense.


“IBM bought Tririga in 2011, and has since built on the San Francisco-based startup’s core real estate portfolio management capabilities. For example, IBM has used its in-house sensor and interval meter data sampling and monitoring technology to create a new application, called Tririga Energy Optimization, that uses data analysis to seek out previously unknown opportunities for efficiency, as well as ranking them against one another in terms of ROI, Bartlett said.”


“…This year it landed a contract with the U.S. Air Force to apply the Tririga platform to its 626 million square feet of real estate across 170 sites around the world, and it is also leading a consortium involved in a 50-building energy efficiency project with the U.S. General Services Administration, the federal government’s landlord.”


“…The Pew Charitable Trusts has projected that U.S. military green spending could reach $10 billion by 2030, including biofuels, batteries, renewable energy and other technologies.”
