Reimagining Building Energy Use

Optimising Your Energy Footprint

 It is no longer acceptable for building owners to not take proactive steps to better manage their energy usage.  The importance of understanding and then optimising your energy use is more important than ever as we strive for 2050 net zero target.

To help you incorporate robust strategies across your portfolio, our technology will help you keep your finger on the pulse of your energy consumption.

Our Building Energy Optimisation solution is underpinned by these key components:

  • Digital Twin Modelling
  • IAQ Monitoring and Occupant Comfort Models Analytics
  • Energy Measurement & Verification

Optimised Controls

By automatically generating an operational digital twin model of your building’s energy systems, including HVAC, Solar PV and Battery Storage Systems, Airconnect Building Energy Optimisation simulates how they will operate under forecast climatic conditions.

It can then recommend and automatically implement more optimal control strategies for improved building performance, including intelligent demand response and energy efficiency strategies for driving operational efficiencies and capturing both cost savings and emissions reductions.

Peak Demand Management

Our software algorithm provides accurate power forecasting of behind-the-meter generators and loads,  facilitating the discovery of more optimal energy management and control strategies that match your buildings electricity load and comfort requirements with how much power is being generated on-site.

By employing continual Measurement & Verification (M&V) techniques for determining energy and cost savings in real-time, these strategies can be rapidly tested, prioritised, and then deployed for achieving improved energy efficiency and demand response outcomes.

 

Smart Ventilation & Building Health

The Airconnect Platform allows you to dynamically apply tailored HVAC control strategies that facilitate increased ventilation for achieving improved Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and building wellness, while still considering energy efficiency objectives.

By combining real-time data from both IAQ sensors and occupancy information, Airconnect uses a data-driven evidence base to recommend and enable demand-controlled ventilation across individual zones or spaces, which is rapidly deployed for increasing fresh air rates and purging unwanted airborne contaminants.

Once acceptable IAQ levels are reached, your buildings normal control strategies are reinstated for ongoing operation, helping to reduce the energy impact from continually bringing in high rates of fresh air via HVAC systems.

Digital Twin Modelling

Optimal operating conditions are plotted on a 3D surface, which can then be chosen by a predictive control algorithm.

 

Measurement and Verification (M&V)

Utilising energy metering data and localised weather data, Airconnect AI provides an Energy Measurement and Verification (M&V) App that is used for measuring and verifying results of energy efficiency measures, equipment upgrades, and renewable energy projects in a defined, disciplined and transparent way. This M&V App utilises weather normalised baselining and verification techniques based on the proven International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) methodology (‘IPMVP Option C’) to easily calculate the performance and savings of energy saving measures.

 

Real-Time Occupant Comfort Models

Real-time occupant comfort analytics using industry standard models including ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55: Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy / ISO 7730: Ergonomics of the thermal environment.

Indoor Air Quality Monitoring and Analytics

IoT enabled sensors for monitoring indoor air quality, including CO2, Temperature & Humidity, and Particulate Matter (PM10, 2.5 and 1.0).
