Enterprise-Wide Optimization Platform Helps Building Owners Achieve Energy & Efficiency Goals

Today’s society is pushing for higher building standards – including better indoor air quality and operational and energy efficiency gains that create greener environments. These drivers are pressuring building owners to invest in technology that unifies their buildings across multiple sites through master systems integration.

Every building, every business has a mission. As more technology is integrated into a single pane of glass, more operations are streamlined, and data analytics applied provide visibility into future capital and operational expenses.  

The solution elevates building management systems from siloed, single building solutions into an enterprise-wide approach that standardizes key performance indicators, procedures, and services needed to drive waste out of an organization.

The enterprise platform is a scalable, open-source solution that integrates legacy systems, sensors, and utility data and applies big data principles to move from reactive to predictive operations. The continuous data collection, reporting, and analysis features within the platform create automated optimization protocols and generate solution-based reports that identify action plans to prolong the life of capital assets.

How it works.

According to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, buildings account for approximately 40% of energy consumption in the United States, with heating and lighting responsible for at least half of that consumption rate. As more systems are digitized, and with increased accessibility to mobile technology and automated alerts, less effort is needed in engineering and deployment of resources.

Unified systems harness billions of data points to trend events and monitor energy and power consumption. Fault detection and diagnostic alerts provide guidance to technicians so they can readily identify root cause of failure and resolve issues expeditiously. This enables companies to focus their resources on critical activities rather than waste time and expenses on trouble shooting complex issues.

Additionally, an enterprise solution helps achieve resiliency and reliability goals by avoiding unscheduled downtime, all while adhering to compliance standards. The data, delivered in a customized dashboard, verifies savings and validates technology effectiveness.

How to leverage edge solutions to improve your healthcare facility

We’re experiencing a fundamental shift in the way we experience healthcare.

With the surge of COVID-19, healthcare facilities face new, critical demands in the way they deliver patient care.

While doctors and nurses navigate adopting interoperability and telehealth solutions to enhance the way they provide care, IT and operations departments are embracing the edge to help keep up on the demand.

The Challenge of Healthcare IT

The increasing need to reduce costs and improve capacity are driving healthcare providers to look for ways to improve efficiency and worker productivity.

As healthcare facilities work together to combat the virus, the technology and network needed to support them is equally critical.

Rethink Your IT Architecture

Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 and concerns regarding availability, expanding your network is a must.

Embracing innovation while driving costs down should be at the forefront of your edge transformation strategy.

You’ll need to rethink your IT architecture that supports edge growth.  You can plan and prepare by asking questions:

  • Where do you need to add capacity?
  • How can you add it efficiently with minimal downtime?
  • How can you manage new edge sites effectively?

Additionally, you’ll need to plan on how to mitigate higher energy consumption. Economizers and lithium ion batteries are just one of the many ways you can help support efficiency.

Invest in New Equipment that Supports Your Goals

Aging equipment will no longer cut it. Old systems can hold you back and not fully support your edge goals.

But a complete overhaul of systems can be costly. Start by identifying and prioritizing which equipment is need of an upgrade and phase in new purchases as your budget allows.

Equipment upgrades and replacements will help decrease costs and environmental footprint offering a better return on your investment in the long run.

Centralize Visibility and Management

With more connected devices and staff on board means more computing capacity is critical.

So, an investment in robust remote monitoring should be top of your list. This will help you monitor environmental conditions and troubleshoot issues quickly.

In addition to centralizing visibility and management, be sure to train staff on your company’s policies and protocols as new technologies and medical equipment integrate with the network.
