The customer is an operator of commercial buildings
Addressed business problem
The customer operates several hundred commercial buildings across Sweden. The customer enquired Free2move if 2Connect™ could be used to reduce energy consumption in all their buildings, and enable them to perform central and mobile monitoring of them.
Together the customer and Free2move worked out a realistic energy savings calculation with RoI and targets. A test system was orchestrated to verify performance in one selected building, after which deployment to more than a hundred buildings were agreed. The system involves temperature measurements throughout the building correlated with weather data to minimise energy consumption of the heating system. The system takes into account heat energy stored in building structures, e.g. concrete beams. Existing information from legacy Modbus and KNX networks was incorporated.
A number of important results have been reported.
