Aquicore, a platform for real estate performance management, recently launched a new “optimal start time” tool for its existing platform. This new tool enables buildings to quickly save on operating costs without affecting tenant comfort.
On average, commercial buildings account for nearly 20% of all the energy used in the US, and as much as 30% of that energy is wasted, according to the US Energy Information Administration. Aquicore is working with its customers across the country to reduce the single most important source of carbon emissions on the planet. Aquicore’s software equips asset and property managers with the data they need to make financial and operational decisions based on key performance indicators forutilities, equipment use, environmental conditions and more.
The optimal start time tool utilizes a complex algorithm to develop suggestions, factoring in outdoor temperature, equipment efficiency, insulation levels, utility tariff schedules and lease hours. The tool’s suggestions are then delivered to users on a daily basis with plenty of time to take action. The tool also requests input from users to better train and enhance the algorithm for the future.
