Sustainable property automation with people in focus

With Schneider Electric’s building automation system, they can easily monitor and control their buildings and achieve sustainability goals faster. Today, properties account for about 30 percent of the world’s energy use and almost 40 percent of annual carbon dioxide emissions. To achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and limit global warming to 1.5 degrees, 3 percent of the building stock in Europe must be renovated every year. Today, the renovation rate is only 1-1.5 percent annually and the biggest obstacle to investing in sustainable buildings is financing. The solution to ensure more accurate investments is to use digital technology. – One of our solutions for property automation is digital twin, a reflection of a real property, with which you can create data-driven insights to optimize energy use in your properties. You get data here in real time, can simulate energy flows and model changes before they are applied live in the facility. The digital twin creates added value for the property owner, who can make the right decision to optimize operations, says Tomas Bäckstadi, Service and Business Development Director, Schneider Electric.An open platform for the building’s various systems80 percent of the 2050 buildings are already estimated to be built today, which means that both the existing property portfolio as well as future buildings need to be managed to achieve the sustainability goals. Schneider Electric’s property automation system EcoStruxure ™ Building Operation (EBO) enables simple and flexible control and monitoring of the property’s various systems in one platform. The system creates the conditions for collecting, structuring, analyzing and acting on the building’s data. To enable today’s and the future’s increasingly connected buildings, the system has built-in support for efficient handling and storage of large amounts of data. energy efficient, resilient, sustainable and designed with people in focus. As we spend upwards of 90 percent of our lives indoors, it becomes clear that the buildings we live in have a major impact on our well-being and health. Air quality, temperature and lighting are examples of parameters that are important to keep in mind. With EcoStruxure ™ Building Operation, the property’s various systems can be seamlessly integrated into a future-proof and flexible platform and contribute to enabling a more productive and healthy indoor environment for the building’s users, says Linnea Lunnbäck, Offer Manager, Schneider Electric.
