The Evolution of Building Management

From something starting out as very manual, building management has evolved to something close to autonomous. To increase efficiency, we need a new approach to BMS controls. We need move from “set and forget” to “continuously fine-tuning”, from “Scheduled based” to predicting, and from “Limited Sensing” to “Augmented IoT sensors”. No doubt a skilled HVAC engineer can unlock savings in a building, but they are hard to find and the scalable approach is therefore to use a trained HVAC AI, where you do not have them today. And there are of course ways to unlock even greater savings even after implementing AI enabled HVAC optimisation. Because even if the underlying system is autonomous, we still see human interaction with the system can lead to even greater results.

We have made myCoreAI interactive if that is what the customer prefers, and autonomous otherwise. Our 48 hr prediction visualises what the AI is planning and gives possibility to intervene if the user wants to. We  feel it is important to keep the customer in full control and give them the ability to always decide what freedom the AI should have.

We have taken a holistic approach to energy optimisation and optimise all possible systems in the building in one single algorithm, with no risk of sub-optimising. The result is a future proof solution where buildings can be a dynamic player in a modern energy system with fully functioning scalable energy flex markets, unlocking new revenue streams for the real estate owner.

And we are already working on the next generation in building management, virtual sub-metering, with no need for additional hardware to measure energy consumption from different components in the building… The future is greener, join us on our journey!
