DSA Selected in GSA’s Proving Ground Program Evaluation for Grid-Interactive Efficient Building Solutions

TREVOSE, PA – Data Systems Analysts, Inc. (DSA) was selected by the U.S. General Services Administration’s Proving Ground (GPG) program to provide Grid-interactive Efficient Building (GEB) solutions for testing in GSA facilities. The solutions were chosen in response to GSA’s Request for Information (RFI) seeking building technology and energy services that can cost-effectively provide building load flexibility as part of a GEB strategy.

DSA’s solutions utilize OSIsoft’s PI Systems, which is a commercial off-the-shelf operational intelligence platform that integrates multiple disparate systems into a single structured Operational Data Warehouse. Facility operators achieve real-time situational awareness, corrective control, and dynamic load management combined with DSA’s machine learning algorithms and load management devices installed by control systems partner Rovisys.

Fran Pierce, DSA’s Chairman and CEO noted, “With this selection, DSA has the opportunity to join commercial applications with DSA’s expertise in machine learning to fully support GSA’s effort to develop cost effective building technology and energy services. We are pleased to apply innovative solutions to successfully address GSA’s mission.”
