Two New England Organizations Create a Pathway for Smart Buildings

Utility incentives are used extensively to help lower costs and improve return on investment for LED lighting and control systems. Today, many organizations are taking advantage of utility incentives to implement these systems and also provide a pathway to add more smart building technologies. We recently shared two stories about a leading consumer goods manufacturer and the Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital as examples.

An intelligent building, coined by the Intelligent Buildings Institute, defines an intelligent building as “one which provides a productive and cost-effective environment through optimization of four basic elements: structure, systems, services and management, and the interrelationship between them.”

As organizations implement occupancy and other sensor-based technologies, these solutions will use a sophisticated network infrastructure to gather, compute, and analyze data that enable facility and operations leaders to better automate their buildings and make more informed short and long-term operational decisions. [Figure 1] Overall, the use and integration of building technologies save money, improve efficiencies, and enhance the occupant experience and safety.
