Big data technologies, such as building automation systems and the internet of things (IoT), give you access to more commercial building energy data than ever before. Strategic energy management software, such as BuildingLogiX, helps you make sense of all that data. Let’s look at how you can collect, analyze, and interpret your energy data with our software.
Strategic energy management (SEM) software and services help you manage certain aspects of your building’s energy consumption in the following ways:
- Energy Consumption Analysis: A SEM program like BuildingLogiX shows you how your HVAC systems operate in your facility. This operational data gives you insight into where energy waste occurs and inefficiencies lie. When you analyze your energy consumption data, you can determine how close you are to your energy goals. Then you can make improvements that help you achieve those goals.
- Building Infrastructure Analysis: Your energy consumption data reveals your building’s operations, which showcase different parts of its infrastructure. The data that a strategic energy management program collects shows you the occupant behaviors, energy usage, system performance, and equipment conditions, among others infrastructure aspects. This information helps you understand how your HVAC system relates to the rest of your building and how it performs as a whole.
- Fault Detection and Prevention: When you collect data through a strategic energy management system, you can use it to detect faults and problems in your building’s infrastructure. Once you know where your problems are, you can have them repaired. When you resolve your HVAC systems’ problems, the systems run more smoothly and decrease your overall energy demand. The decreased demand then increases your energy savings.
These SEM software capabilities help you keep track of your building’s energy operations and find ways to improve them.
There are a few energy management systems for commercial buildings out there, so what makes BuildingLogiX an excellent choice? We make our platform user friendly, with a data visualization portal that presents your HVAC systems’ data in a readable format. If you need help interpreting any of the data in the portal, our team of engineers and technicians is available to help you make sense of everything. And we do this for more than one commercial building at a time.
We specialize in implementing our software in multi-structure campuses and using our platform to show you HVAC data from all across your buildings. Often, organizations with large campuses install a building automation system (BAS) in each of their buildings, but each BAS doesn’t talk to the others. Our platform gives you a way to view BAS data from all of your facilities and compare them to each other. This capability allows you to use our software to see how each building’s performance compares to the others’ and make continuous improvements to each of them. That way, you can bring all of your buildings up to the same high level of performance.
When you install and implement BuildingLogiX on your campus or in your facility, you receive a variety of benefits. For example, our BDX platform shows you where your energy problems are, and solving those problems helps you lower your building’s operating costs. It also helps you see your facility’s current performance levels and measure them against state and federal compliance standards. With our software, you can constantly monitor your HVAC systems and ensure they’re where they need to be to comply with regulations and keep occupants safe. You can also use our platform to generate reports whenever you need to produce them for stakeholders to see. Overall, BDX offers you the benefits of staying aware of your building’s performance and energy usage.
If you’re ready to learn more about your facility’s or campus’s energy performance and improve it, reach out to us today. We have the capabilities to help you implement our platform and navigate data analysis. Then you can begin improving your buildings’ performance and make them more energy efficient than they currently are.
