Why is Building Analytics Important for the Future?

Enterprise Technology Review | Friday, October 16, 2020

Building analytics provides insightful data, which can be used to optimize a company's facility's energy performance and removes any inefficiencies.

FREMONT, CA: Most of the buildings today use Building Management Systems (BMS) to manage a facility's regular operations. Building analytics helps to use data to enhance the energy equipment's functions, thereby lowering energy costs. This provides indirect benefits such as improving the tenants' comfort and extending the life of the equipment. Many states are taking the initiative to encourage the building to utilize energy management and information systems and monitor devices, which will help unveil energy-saving opportunities and improve overall building performance.

Here are a few benefits of building analytics for the future.

Fault Detection

Fault detection and diagnostics for forecasting cost savings and energy are the key elements of a building-analytics system. Instead of depending on monthly checkups to track performance, comfort levels, and energy and maintenance data, building analytics automatically analyzes it at periodic intervals. This enables users to increase the proactivity of building maintenance while ensuring continuous energy efficiency. It allows a new facility manager to ramp up their maintenance best practices for a facility.

Supports Sustainability

Sustainability is a competitive advantage in the present environment where tenants, owners, and regulatory measures focus more and more on clean energy initiatives. Even though the traditional method of carbon offsets and renewable energy is being conducted off-premises, building analytics delivers a method to improve sustainable energy efforts on-premises.

Automated alerts and notifications

The utilization of building analytics is powerful in crucial operations management, where remote monitoring is also possible from hundreds of miles away.

Older ѕуѕtеmѕ that соmmunісаtеs with proprietary ѕуѕtеmѕ can obstruct from receiving traditional notifications, but building anаlуtісѕ аutоmаtіоn ѕоlutіоnѕ are mainly designed to integrate with ореn ѕуѕtеmѕ seamlessly. Thіѕ will help to receive alerts and notifications even from old systems.

The facility managers, building owners, and operators of today face various challenges include the rising cost of energy. Building analytics is a valuable tool that offers an integrated and extensive view of the health of the building, energy consumption, and real-time data. This data aids in addressing the operating expenses, ensuring the comfort of tenants, and meeting sustainability goals.
