Property Owners, Asset Managers, Building Owners & Operators
Engineering Directors & Facilities Management
The leading driver of energy management programs is the desire for cost reduction. Every facility in your portfolio has its own set of inefficiencies, with high operational costs that can be reduced. Once operating costs are driven down, you will benefit by an increase in Net Operating (NOI) Income without over-stretching your team.
Managing a hotel building has many moving parts and is becoming more and more complex. Streamline your daily workflow by seeing your building systems in one place. Our energy analytic platform monitors the building systems to spot any issues before they become problems. Our Remote Energy Center can act as an extension to your facilities team to provide a list of diagnostics and prescriptions that your facilities’ teams can resolve.
Energy conservation methods in hotels around the world range from savings efforts focused on lighting, water or HVAC operations. Hotel energy management investments directed towards HVAC operations offer the greatest yield. The ideal setting is a more comfortable building experience, with fewer hot/cold calls from guests. Managing guest room comfort is critical — as social-generated ratings drive more and more reservations decisions. Many hotels place a strong emphasis on fostering energy awareness among staff, and motivating employees to save energy at work and at home. Other hotels chains have aligned their mission to reduce their environmental impact with the core, strategic business goals.
Avoid the hot or cold zones and reduce complaint calls. Comfortable guests are satisfied guests and everyone benefits.
Portfolio Manager / Asset Manager
Entic has demonstrated on average an 8%-12% energy reduction across commercial real estate portfolios, translating into meaningful value creation. When major energy-consuming systems are continuously diagnosed using the Entic energy platform, efficiency gains become more sustainable, and operating costs can be dramatically reduced. Commercial buildings that fail to keep up with the technological advances in energy efficiency also risk becoming obsolete, especially in unfavorable market conditions like low or negative economic growth.
Chief Sustainability Officer
Complying with sustainability regulations is top of mind for most large organizations. The benefits include reduced cost and risk through increased tracking and reporting. Those that have not chosen a proactive, sustainable approach may be impacted financially – they may risk losing talent, shareholders, and customers. EHS, Sustainability, and Corporate Energy Management teams all benefit by bringing sustainability back to core business goals.
Engineering Director / Facility Operators
The challenge for Engineering Directors and Facility Management is to understand the technology and options… and most importantly, to put the data to work to produce tangible benefits for the organization. Similar to a doctor examining a patient, buildings have diagnostics that allow a trained operator to determine its condition. A diagnostic helps determine the cause or nature of a problem.
Of course, it helps to have years of experience in the same building. This is not a situation that some building operators have because they might have switched jobs and are now at an unfamiliar facility. Some operators cover several facilities and have varying degrees of knowledge of each facility. But even operators with many years of experience at the same facility still must deal with time constraints, reduced staff and disparate systems, coupled with less than optimal legacy equipment.
While the value of the building can increase with better energy performance, evidence suggests that energy efficient buildings show shorter vacancy periods, have lower tenant turn-over and tenants will pay a premium.
Hospital Management (GM, CFO)
Healthcare facilities are highly energy intensive. They are open 24/7/365, and can have numerous offsite facilities, making energy management a daunting task.
In contrast to other cost cutting approaches, energy efficiency can be achieved through professional services and equipment rather than process changes that affect the behavior of hospital staff or the level of patient care. Perhaps the most important benefit of an energy management solution is that energy efficiency is directly measurable.
Hospitals that embrace energy efficiency in new construction or building renovations are poised to gain long-term, improved financial performance, as well as demonstrate better compliance with patient safety initiatives and staff productivity goals. Using technology to increase efficiency aligns the goals of patient satisfaction, increased profits, and corporate sustainability.
Facility Managers can become wiser by arming themselves with data and automated insights derived from real-time consumption. To monitor and improve energy efficiency, facility managers need insight into real-time energy usage in their hospital. This data enables them to resolve issues that may go unnoticed and achieve results with low risk to patient care, staff productivity, and customer service. The challenges faced by healthcare facilities offer tremendous opportunities for those willing to study trends, adopt new processes, and install advanced systems that can empower them to optimize operational efficiency. Because consumption is high, so is the opportunity for efficiency when reducing waste and improving operations. Successful energy management technology can change both business outcomes and patient outcomes
Healthcare facilities place patient satisfaction high on their agenda. And it must not be overlooked that the physical environment that falls under the supervision of the Facility Manager plays heavily on patient satisfaction. Patient satisfaction affects clinical outcomes, patient retention, and medical malpractice claims. With energy efficiency improvements, everyone benefits.
To be effective and sustainable in energy efficiency efforts, stadium owners need to make environmental strategic planning part of overall organizational operations. Improving energy efficiency opens up the opportunity to make sports operations more sustainable and makes good business sense; it saves money and enhances corporate reputation
Connected technology is helping facilities managers to run game days more effectively. Smart building systems can also improve stadium operations and efficiencies. Some stadiums are investing in energy management systems that support real time analytics. This allows facility managers to optimize every device and function, from heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) to the flashing light display that accompanies a home team score. Leveraging the cultural and market influences of sports helps promote healthy, sustainable communities and is a smart business strategy where everyone can benefit.
Sports fans will benefit from the innovative solutions that emphasize the importance of measuring and tracking energy and water use at sports venues. When we all play greener,
we all win.
