BOSTON -- November 07, 2012

Energy Points, a provider of energy analytics for universal resource
management, today announced that EnergyPoints Analytics™ is one of the first
applications available on the Panoptix® Platform by Johnson Controls.
EnergyPoints Analytics provides a normalized, one-to-one comparison of energy
resource consumption across all domains, including water, electricity,
transportation, gas, waste and materials.

“Energy Points is a valuable addition to the Panoptix platform and will
provide building owners and facility managers with an important app to manage
their facilities,” said Laura Farnham, vice president, Building Technology and
Services, Johnson Controls. “With Energy Points, Panoptix customers can
measure their environmental sustainability in a new and innovative way,
providing facility managers and C-level executives with an intuitive way to
compare energy resource consumption across multiple domains.”

The Panoptix solution is a combination of software and services to help single
building owners or managers of global enterprises improve the performance of
their buildings, decrease energy use and operational costs, and reduce
greenhouse gas emissions. It is driven by cloud-based apps that provide
visibility into how every system, subsystem and device is functioning, and
provides information to take actions to improve their performance. It works
with any size building, any building management system; can be accessed by any
computer, tablet or smartphone; and is supported with industry news, an online
community and Johnson Controls Live Guide™ experts. EnergyPoints Analytics was
selected by Johnson Controls as one of the first third-party apps available on

The EnergyPoints Analytics app empowers Panoptix customers to track resource
consumption in buildings, either individually or in logical groups.
Easy-to-use maps identify locations where resources are scarce, unsustainable
or expensive, providing short and long-term project performance analysis for
decision making. Users can compare resource consumption to building size,
production, revenue, occupancy or any other company-specific measurement. The
application factors in critical indicators, such as regional energy mix (coal,
natural gas, renewables), resource location, life cycle analysis, scarcity and
stress to generate the true value of consumed natural resources.

“We’re proud to provide an innovative sustainability application on the
Panoptix platform. Building owners are embracing environmental sustainability,
but need to be able to quantify their projects and resource consumption in an
intuitive manner,” said Ory Zik, founder and CEO of Energy Points.
“EnergyPoints Analytics imports critical building data from Panoptix,
providing a comparative analysis of all resource consumption. As a result,
building managers can make more effective project decisions based on
scientific data, while being able to clearly communicate the true impact of
these projects to the C-level.”
