The Building Dashboard from Lucid Design Group Inc. got its start at Oberlin College, where students developed a monitoring system to compare energy use by different dormitories. Several of these students went on to create Lucid and commercialize the first user-friendly energy dashboard system for commercial and institutional buildings. Building Dashboard Kiosk is a touch-screen display that shows the real-time use of energy and water in an attractive and easy-to-understand manner, and Building Dashboard Network allows users to create community-wide comparisons and set up budgets. Most of the company’s systems have been installed at colleges and universities, including a system collecting data from 50 buildings at Elon University, but the company has several systems in commercial buildings as well.
