Constellation, an Exelon company, is a leading competitive energy company providing power, natural gas, renewable energy, and energy management products and services for homes and businesses across the continental United States. They provide integrated energy solutions — from electricity and natural gas procurement and renewable energy supply to energy efficiency and distributed energy solutions — that help customers strategically buy, manage and use their energy.

How Constellation Utilizes Project Haystack. Constellation uses the Haystack model extensively in their projects in two key ways. Most significantly, they use Haystack to tag data which allows them to create analytic tools that can be easily applied to different projects with similar types of equipment and data. Haystack tagging streamlines deployment of analytic tools to all their projects. 

They also utilize the Haystack REST API, both to pull in data from outside sources, as well as to export datasets into other engineering tools where they can rapidly develop and model new and custom analytics. Overall, the Haystack methodology is a core foundation of the platform that Constellation implements for all performance-period Energy Efficiency retrofit projects.

Zachariah Nobel, Principal Performance Assurance Engineer, accepted the award on behalf of Constellation.
