What the Judges Said…
“This product will definitely help businesses measure their progress toward sustainability targets, and help communicate that internally and externally. It has the potential to take dashboard monitoring of real-time environmental data to another level.”
Lucid’s Storyboards interactive building dashboard tool is designed for organization-wide engagement and for showcasing energy and sustainability initiatives. The tool provides transparency into energy and resource consumption while serving as an educational and branding platform. With Storyboards, organizations can engage and educate both internal and external stakeholders, improve the building occupant experience, educate a diverse audience about green features, and build their brands.
The tool has a centralized database of building information and resource utilization combined with information about company initiatives, goals, and other custom content. It supports content types that include graphs, reports, pictures, and videos. Storyboards can be accessed from any web-enabled device.
The Storyboards interactive dashboard technology includes features such as the inclusion of real-time data, sustainability competition progress and results tracking, integration and publication of third-party content, data analysis for meaningful storylines, and interactive controls to access a variety of dashboards. The tool’s integrated approach to building occupant engagement provides a centralized view of resources in context and shows where occupants can make a difference, according to Lucid.
The company says that Storyboards contribute to the success of sustainability and occupant satisfaction programs by making building performance accessible and interesting to occupants. Lucid customer LinkedIn combines real-time data and narrative content to engage company employees and visitors. One LinkedIn office used the energy reduction competition features in the Storyboards tool to achieve net-zero energy certification.
McKesson displays Storyboards on interactive touchscreens, standard display screens, and tablets to share green features and public announcements with employees. CSU Sacramento uses Storyboards to embed building systems data and green features content into external websites for public viewing. Frisco Independent School District emails and shares dashboards with building occupants and operators to keep them informed of progress on sustainability goals.
In addition, 20 organizations used Storyboards to showcase their competition data for Campus Conservation Nationals 2017, engaging thousands of community members and reducing energy use by more than 450,000 kWh — $40,000 — over a three-week period.
