Tight control of two main facets of lights – the type and how they are controlled – can lead to great savings for enterprises.
The brain of the intelligent building, or the building energy management system (BEMS), gives customers the software analytics that translate more data into better information.
Organizations interested in the financial and environmental benefits of energy efficiency go to great lengths to reduce consumption. Some approaches – such as LED retrofits – are relatively easy. Others, such as the deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT) — are more intensive and carry a steeper price tag. What about just turning off and disconnecting the things that shouldn’t be turned on?
There are tiny changes going on in energy management. Indeed, these changes – in data centers and elsewhere – are so small that they are impossible to see. However, their impact, already significant, will continue to grow and should be tracked by energy managers.
Among new approaches to fulfilling HVAC’s mandate — providing the occupants of a building with a comfortable and healthy environment — is the use of dedicated outside air systems (DOASs).
