Using IoT for Electrical Maintenance

The Endless Possibilities of Using IoT for Electrical Maintenance

The internet of things (IoT) as we already know, is a giant network of connected things and people. This seemingly endless web of interconnected devices is said to be the pinnacle of technological advancement. From ordering an Uber to efficient elevator alignment to maximizing energy efficiency, there is literally no limit to the potential physical accomplishments of the IoT. The …

How the convergencec of IoT and IAQ has influenced energy efficiency projects

How the Convergence of IoT and IAQ has Influenced Energy Efficiency Practices

Energy costs in commercial buildings is reaching record highs due to a host of factors not limited to increased competition, boom in technology initiatives, increased use of HVAC systems, lighting, and other building control systems. To put it into perspective, a commercial building consumes 90% of the 75% of the electric form of energy in lighting, office equipment and HVAC …

5 Ways the Convergence of IPMVP and IoT Increase Energy Savings

5 Ways the Convergence of IPMVP and IoT Increases Energy Savings in Commercial Buildings

The convergence of IPMVP and IoT provides huge energy saving prospects for commercial buildings. But before we dive in to those prospects, let’s first take a look at what the concepts of IPMVP and IoT imply, leading up to the possible outcome of their convergence.

How Continuous Commissioning Impacts Building Performance

How Continuous Commissioning is Impacting Building Performance

Prior to continuous commissioning, also known as Automated Continuous Commissioning, commercial buildings after construction implemented a onetime fine-tuning or building optimization process. At the very best, these buildings were only being “optimized” periodically (Bi annually, yearly, etc.) as per schedule. This method of commissioning posed major questions among commercial building owners/managers, some of which were: What happens in the period …

Why You Should Transition to Continuous Commissioning

Why We Love the Transition to Continuous Commissioning and You Should Too

  What is continuous commissioning? The term continuous commissioning was coined by engineers at Energy Systems Lab in Texas A&M University to describe the process of measuring energy use and environmental data on an ongoing basis to improve the operations of the building. Typically buildings that have been retrofitted with various energy efficiency systems and improvements can be measured frequently …

Ways to Gain ROI with IAQ Strategy with Senseware

Ways to Gain ROI by Implementing an IAQ Strategy

Importance of IAQ Today, there is an increased awareness of the co-relation between IAQ and health. Multiple scientific studies have published research that confirms that poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can greatly affect individuals and, more broadly, the public health and national productivity. In a recent report, the Institute of Medicine concluded that “there is sufficient evidence of an association …

10 Energy Cost Savings Solutions for Commercial Buildings

Energy consumption has been growing exponentially over the years. Today more than 4.7 million commercial buildings consume more energy than the transportation or industry sectors, accounting for nearly 40 percent of total U.S. energy use. The total energy used by U.S. buildings topped $369 billion in 2005.

Remote Building Monitoring

How the Cloud Enables You to Be Energy Efficient

Building owners and facility managers are often perplexed by the amount of data collected from utilities, maintenance and building management systems (BMS). This data arises from the need to lower maintenance costs, increase their Return on Investment on energy management systems and decrease energy bills.

Weather

How Monitoring and Correlating Weather Data Impacts Building Efficiency

Energy consumption in commercial buildings is crucial to the management and sustainability of commercial properties. Based on a 2016 EIA (Energy information Administration) energy report, commercial and residential buildings accounted for as much as 40% of the total US energy consumption. This invariably puts energy consumption among the top expenses in the financial statements of commercial buildings.
