Report | Fact Sheet
Understanding the needs of the industry and the customer to support the adoption of IoT technologies that can increase the uptake of energy saving products (e.g., LED lighting, sensors and controls) through energy savings opportunities (e.g., plug loads and HVAC) or valued non-energy benefits.
Fact sheet that addresses the implementation of connected building technology being evaluated by Nantum by Prescriptive Data, that has been developed by a real-estate company to manage its portfolio. Nantum is cloud based, powered by machine learning, and predictively ramps the building HVAC systems up and down to optimize efficiency based on occupancy patterns, weather conditions, and real-time electricity consumption. The system also provides energy efficiency recommendations to building operators in real-time.
GSA’s Green Proving Ground program recently assessed the potential of wireless sensor technology to provide a cost-effective and facilities-friendly way of helping data center operators visualize and implement system changes that reduce overall energy consumption. Findings include significant cost savings, as well as a substantial reduction in cooling load and CO2 emissions. Sensors utilizing a wireless mesh network and data management software to capture and graphically display real time conditions for energy optimization were installed in a demonstration project.
