(San Francisco, September 30, 2011) iCONNET SPB EMS (Energy-Management-System) by Controlnet International Inc. is the electricity operating system for next-generation Self-Powered Buildings (SPB) with the most efficient integrated smart-home functions. iCONNET featured at GoingGreen Silicon Valley event September 27 – 28, 2011, organized by Tony Perkins (founder of Red Herring)/AlwaysOn, and sponsored by KPMG, Morgan Stanley and Bridge Bank in San Francisco City Hall.


The ISPBC showcase was hosted by Ray Rothrock from Venrock Venture Capital Group, and panel participants included researcher Carrie Armel from Precourt Institute for Energy Efficiency, Stanford University, and Bill Weihl, Green Energy Czar from Google, who supports smart green technologies like iConnet: “Energy-efficiency makes economic sense. It makes money and saves money.”


The iCONNET EMS is a customizable and scalable modular array system that can be adapted into any existing home, high-rise, commercial and industrial buildings. Since current buildings are not designed to provide integrated and optimized connectivity, electricity losses up to 23% occur in the conversion from AC-to-DC power. The multi-voltage iCONNET EMS maximizes energy efficiency of conventional AC-powered buildings.


The iCONNET EMS seamlessly integrates and directs multi-power sources: grid, renewables (wind/solar/thermal) and cloud. More importantly, it can provide direct DC-power to appliances like laptops and smart phones(iPhone). Portable devices can plug directly into the wall-outlet without bulky energy-consuming transformers. The iCONNET EMS effectively reduces loss of energy, heat and waste of resources. In addition to LED-lighting, it can provide a new platform for DC-powered energy-efficient consumer electronics and household appliances like air-conditioners, refrigerators and washers.


The iCONNET EMS is commercially-ready and adaptable immediately, also designed for the optimally performing next-generation building, SPB(Self-Powered-Building), certified by ISPBC.
