Is your building working for you?
Regardless of industry, running a building is a challenge. And when it comes to energy usage, many businesses aren’t as efficient as they need to be.

Transform the way businesses operate
Smart building energy management is the fastest, cheapest way to reduce energy bills and cut greenhouse gas emissions—and will be key to businesses overcoming challenges such as:
Managing occupant behaviour
Lights left on in empty rooms, computers kept on overnight, windows open with the heating set to high… A shocking amount of energy is wasted through human behaviour—which can be a real challenge to keep an eye on, let alone manage.
Rising operational costs
Running a building is already expensive enough, but with rising energy costs, building operators need more control over common energy issues such as under-utilisation, inefficient scheduling, over-performing equipment, and fluctuating supply and demand.
Meeting green policies
Heating and powering buildings accounts for 40% of total energy usage in the UK—and businesses are under more pressure than ever to meet energy reduction targets. The 2018 Government policy paper “The Grand Challenges” outlines the aim of halving energy usage in new buildings by 2030.
