BACnet International has launched an eagerly-awaited survey to gauge the current state of BACnet's position in the global building automation and controls market. The survey is intended to answer these questions, among others:

1. What is BACnet's market share?
2. Where is BACnet being used?
3. What are the trends in BACnet deployment?

The present survey is intended to be the first of a series of annual surveys related to BACnet's position in the world market. The survey is being sent to all members of BI, holders of BACnet Vendor IDs with known email addresses, as well as to other BACnet manufacturers around the world. If you would like to participate, you can the link below to go to the confidential online interactive survey form, once you are ready to input your data.

BACnet International takes the confidentially of your submission seriously. No individual metrics will be shared, only aggregate numbers. All data will be used in a form that will make it impossible to determine the identity of the individual responses. That is, the survey responses will not be integrated, analyzed, or reported in any way in which the confidentiality of the survey responses is not guaranteed.

You need not be a member of BACnet International to participate, just a manufacturer of BACnet products.

Continuous Commissioning®  Executive Overview
Applying the Continuous Commissioning® (CC® 1) process typically reduces energy cost by about 20% in existing buildings as measured by the methods outlined in the USDOE's International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol. The CC® techniques developed at the Energy Systems Laboratory involve monitoring and solid engineering analysis of mechanical systems and occupant needs. Increased skills and training are needed to obtain energy savings in buildings today. CC® addresses this need. This branded process can be implemented only by qualified, licensed providers.

The market for ultra-low power wireless technologies, for short range networks, is overcrowded, but Qualcomm is creating yet another contender to go alongside Bluetooth, ZigBee, UltraWideBand and Z-Wave. This one is less about personal area networks than pushing power levels even lower, eventually targeting 'body area networks'.

Qualcomm's project is called Peanut, and the firm's SVP of R&D, Matt Grob, said it could be used over distances from a few inches to the length of a room. "It would require fractions of a milliwatt of power but move data at high speed," he told the EmTech@MIT 2010 conference.
