Predictive Energy Optimization: Smart Buildings

April 26, 2017

Due to the high impact that energy consumption by buildings has on a global scale, energy-efficient buildings to reduce CO2CO2 emissions and energy consumption are needed. A few years ago, no one would have noticed a small ‘blip’ on the power bills. Today it is different: budgets have been tightened. Adding insult to injury, environmentally conscious tenants are asking about LEED certification, and the ever-raising bar of Energy Star ratings mean that buildings must reduce energy use to stay valuable.

Monitoring information from heterogeneous sources is collected and analyzed before proposing concrete actions to minimize energy consumption. The main parameters that must be monitored and analyzed before implementing optimum energy building managements are as follows:

  1. Electrical devices always connected to the electrical network. In buildings, it is necessary to characterize the minimum value of energy consumption due to electrical devices that are always connected to the electrical network.
  2. Electrical devices occasionally connected. Depending on the kind of building under analysis, different electrical devices may be used with different purposes.
  3. Occupants’ behavior. Energy consumption of buildings due to the behavior of their occupants is one of the most critical point in every building energy management.
  4. Environmental conditions. Parameters like temperature, humidity, pressure and natural lighting have a direct impact on the energy consumption of buildings. Nevertheless, depending on the specific context of the building and its requirements, this impact will differ and be greatest in the case of indoor comfort services (like thermal and visual comfort).

At Anglo African, our automation solutions are based on intelligent installation system that meets the highest requirements for applications in modern building control.
