We all live and work in buildings, but operating them and sustaining the right temperature requires an enormous amount of energy. In fact, buildings account for more than 39% of global CO2 emissions and therefore have a huge savings potential.
Most buildings today don’t know about their surroundings and are controlled by a standard routine. This means, buildings only react to temperature changes, instead of proactively adapting to their environment and therefore wasting energy.
1. A machine learning model derives a forecast of how a building will be used the following days based on building and weather data
2. A multi-parameter optimization algorithm derives ideal controls for heating, ventilation and cooling towards three goals: user comfort, reduction of emissions and energy usage
3. With the derived controls, the Building Management system reduces total energy usage by proactively adapting to weather changes. By accounting the availability of renewable energy and shifting its usage, the building can further save emissions
