The landscape of building efficiency is changing. Facility and building managers have access to advanced systems and technology, making Information Technology (IT) team members a bigger part of the picture. Even the most basic building automation system (BAS) offers more control and customization than ever before.
Despite technological advancements that have made building data easier to access and analyze, evidence shows that most building owners and managers are not realizing the opportunities for cost savings and energy efficiency improvements. The building efficiency platform bridges this gap between potential and reality by collecting the wealth of data accessed through today’s sophisticated BAS, normalizing it and allowing it to be stored and pulled from the cloud via applications that deliver exactly the information and insight needed to make building—and entire enterprises—more efficient.
The graphic below shows how building efficiency platforms add a new layer to the traditional building automation system technology stack.
