The Project Haystack Organization recently announced that Constellation was presented with the first ever Project Haystack Award for adoption of Project Haystack methodology. This interesting information came to us from PRWeb in their article, “Project Haystack Award Recognizes Constellation for Adoption of Haystack Semantic Modeling and Tagging of Device and Equipment Data.”

The award was presented in front of a packed house at the ControlTrends 2016 Awards ceremony held January 29th in Las Vegas during AHR Expo 2017.

The Project Haystack Organization is a collaborative community addressing the challenge of utilizing semantic modeling and tagging to streamline the interchange of data among different systems, equipment and software applications in order to lower the cost of intelligent building and solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT).

Constellation is a competitive energy company providing power, natural gas, renewable energy, and energy management products and services for homes and businesses across the continental United States. Constellation is utilizing the Project Haystack methodology to tag data with descriptors which are allowing them to create analytic tools that can be easily applied to different projects with similar types of equipment and data. Constellation is also utilizing the Haystack REST API to both pull in data from outside sources.
