Federal buildings make up the largest portfolio of buildings in the world. Ranging from offices to military bases to national labs, they office hundreds of thousands of employees. Historically, federal buildings use lighting, mechanical, and heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems inefficiently. Comfort of occupants is often overlooked.
Goals and Objectives
Deliver energy and cost savings along with new levels of comfort for occupants. Develop pathways toward net-zero energy buildings that go far beyond current levels of energy use reduction.
Automated building management systems networked with IoT sensors, wireless communications, weather monitoring systems, LED lights, cloud-enabled Big Data and analytics, and dashboards
Use Case Summary
To reduce spending and meet green energy and sustainability targets while improving occupant comfort, agencies are automating building maintenance systems and deploying smart building technologies with real-time metrics on energy savings and recommendations on how to further increase efficiencies and occupant comfort.
