ABB Smart Buildings today announced the release of BE Sustainable Active Energy Solution, part of Building Ecosystem digital tools, to deliver a digital platform tailored to buildings' needs to monitor real-time energy use and increase efficiency.
In the United States, buildings consume 41% of the nation’s total energy use¹. With rapid urbanization, there is a call for a shift towards smarter buildings. ABB’s Building Ecosystem meets this need through optimized energy efficiency with Active Energy.
“Energy management, building controls, and automation through the acceleration of the IoT and digitalization have enabled a level of connectivity to manage energy use like never before,” said Michael Lotfy, Senior Vice President, Group Head, Smart Buildings Solutions, Americas. “Now is the perfect time to reassess and redefine an approach to investments in smart buildings.”
ABB’s BE Sustainable Active Energy Solution helps monitor and manage energy usage, emissions, and costs by tracking utilities in real-time. With Active Energy, building owners can reduce energy consumption and emissions by up to 20%.
The effective management, active decision making, and streamline compliance provided by ABB’s solution grant building owners access to real-time visibility of utility usage, easy identification of energy efficiency improvement opportunities, and the ability to track sustainability goals.
The cloud-based SaaS solution allows access across any geographical location, with no limit to the number of meters and sensor points. Energy management is also made easy through data analytics, predictive targets, and a user-friendly interface. Building owners gain a live view of every utility for immediate analysis. They can also set thresholds, receive alerts, and compare predictive target usage to actual usage creating smart, safe and sustainable buildings.
