Improve energy use and facilities management
Operations account for 71% of the total cost of a building over its lifespan, and buildings consume 42% of all electricity—more than any other asset. By 2025, buildings are projected to be the largest emitters of greenhouse gases on our planet. In the United States alone, buildings produce 38% of green-house gas emissions. So how can we make our buildings operate more efficiently?
Our cognitive building solutions give real estate and facilities management professionals the tools necessary to better manage energy use, optimize space, reduce operating costs, and simplify real estate planning and management.
Employing a cognitive buildings strategy can help your organization reduce energy use up to 50% and increase facilities utilization by up to 85%. In the U.S. alone, commercial real estate accounts for 12 billion square feet of covered area, but only 67% is utilized. In a world where employees are spending less time in the office and more time in alternative workplaces, a cognitive buildings strategy can also enhance employee productivity up to 18%.
Cognitive buildings can flexibly adapt to changing occupant needs while saving energy and cost – isn’t it time you made your buildings more intelligent?
