Gathering a Whole Portfolio's Worth of Data and Automatically Controlling their Climate Systems

With the entire Merin portfolio onboarded to our BRIGHTER Essential package, we have upgraded to now automatically controlling the buildings’ climate systems, saving even more energy in the process. By controlling these 18 buildings, we have reduced gas and heat usage by 20% and electricity by 3%, while maintaining or improving the working environment.

Challenge

Making sure 18 buildings in different locations, with varying installations and BMSs, will be as efficient as possible while remaining comfortable for users.

2

Approach

This is a BRIGHTER project. Our aim was to get the BMSs connected and have data coming into our system as soon as possible. This allowed us to start analyzing the data. We also made sure to plan our first (on-site) pre-functional check early on. This allowed us to prioritize buildings based on data and possible maintenance needs.

Outcome

Autonomous, intelligently controlled buildings that are comfortable, healthy, and waste no energy. We aim to save, on average, 20% on gas/heat. So far, in the pilot phase, BRIGHTER helped save 40% on gas usage and 15% on electricity. Tenants noticed an improved indoor climate.

“Improving our tenants’ comfort is very important to us. BRIGHTER contributes to that and even reduces the CO2 emissions of the offices.”
