There are two types of buildings, those that already exist and those that don’t. Research shows that the greenest buildings are those that already exist but, as they’re built with older and less-efficient systems, they naturally don’t save as much energy as newer, modern buildings. Retrofits can be expensive and out of budget, so what’s a landlord to do? After all, time is not on our side and we need ways to reduce our footprint now to save our planet and meet increasing tenant demands.
Fortunately, AI can extract data from existing systems and manipulate operations to reduce energy use, improve time of use strategy, implement predictive maintenance practices and continuously improve operations. For example, within just three months, energy can be reduced by up to 25 percent and carbon emissions by up to 40 percent.
