How Smart Building Technology Improves Facility and Energy Management Decision Making for Improved Outcomes with Tangible Benefits

Using smart building technology, data-based energy management decision-making adds value, encourages collaboration, reduces rework, improves productivity and more.

The days of set-rate energy billing and use are over. Exact rates may depend on the time of use, the amount used by the public and other factors. Meanwhile, deferred maintenance and pressure to reduce costs continue to increase the burden of the facility in energy management decision-making processes, but smart building tech can lead to improved outcomes across your company in these key ways.

Energy Management Decision Making Improves Asset Reliability and Performance

Smart building technology empowers data-based energy management decision-making across all assets and activities. This includes reducing risk to your company by implementing energy-saving practices, increasing the energy-efficiency of assets and monitoring their performance, explains Dr. Elda Gizzatov via LinkedIn. Also, energy management decision-making also lends itself to employee performance measurement by allowing facility managers to track per-employee activities, including the timely or delayed completion of maintenance or repairs.

Data Collection and Analysis and Centralized Information Controls Enables Continuous Improvement and Better Visibility

Data collection and analysis, encourages proper energy management decision-making by ensuring the most critical assets and functions are addressed first. This goes back to the creation of a smart, preventative maintenance schedule. Moreover, centralized information controls through smart building tech enable continuous improvement and better visibility throughout your facility. Reducing energy consumption is among the top benefits of smart building technology, and energy management decision-making processes are improved when facility managers can see the exact energy consumption rates per asset.

Modern Technology Brings Disparate Systems Together

Smart building technology also can bring disparate systems together. This is possible through wireless, internet-enabled devices, powered by the internet of things and other types of smart building technology. Systems that did not seem to function together, such as incoming light and HVAC functions, can be brought together through smart building solutions to unlock better savings.

It Encourages Productivity of Occupants and Tenant Retention

Productivity is everything. It is important to all the occupants of your facility, including your staff members, tenants or other customers. Smart building tech allows everyone to do more with less, and it effectively reduces personnel costs by ensuring long-term productivity of every person, asserts Zondits.
