SAN FRANCISCO -- April 22, 2013

BuildingIQ, a leading energy management software company, today announced that
it has been named winner of the 2013 Bloomberg New Energy Pioneers Award,
produced by Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Selected for its cloud-based
predictive energy optimization technology, BuildingIQ’s software reduces HVAC
energy use in commercial buildings by as much as 25 percent by monitoring and
adjusting the system based on variables such as weather, occupancy, demand
response signals and utility tariffs. Chosen from hundreds of companies,
BuildingIQ's energy management software was among Bloomberg’s top global
innovations this year. BuildingIQ was recognized on stage at the sixth annual
Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit in New York City.

“Tough times make for good entrepreneurs, and this is definitely what we are
seeing in this year’s New Energy Pioneers,” said Michael Liebreich, Chief
Executive of Bloomberg New Energy Finance. “Once again we need to thank the
judges, who had to winnow down a strong field to just ten winners. We wish
them all luck in the coming years.”

The Bloomberg New Energy Pioneers Award highlights the momentum and potential
scale of the top companies in the field of clean energy technology and
innovation. With a building energy management systems (BEMS) market expected
to be worth about $6 billion worldwide by 2020, according to Navigant
Research, BuildingIQ’s Predictive Energy Optimization software meets the
demands of an expanding industry.

“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by Bloomberg as one of the New
Energy Pioneers of 2013,” said Michael Zimmerman, CEO of BuildingIQ. “We have
made significant steps to secure our spot at the top of the cleantech
industry, most recently with funding from energy industry leaders like Siemens
and Schneider-Electic. It’s gratifying to be recognized for this sort of
commitment to the field. As the industry continues to grow and evolve,
BuildingIQ will be right there to support it.”
