A full building management system (or BMS) connects everything from heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) and lighting in order to place a single overarching system in charge of building functionality. A BMS based on the cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT) represents the future for all kinds of buildings ranging from residential to large commercial properties.
Months into the COVID-19 lockdown last year, positive headlines were few and far between. Among the limited uplifting topics to catch public attention, however, was sustainability. In December 2020, news outlets across the country wrote about data published in the journal “Earth System Science Data” that showed a 7 percent drop from fossil emission levels compared to 2019. That equates to an estimated 2.4 billion tonnes’ difference in CO2 emissions.
In this webcast session, 75F's Bob French hosts a live Q&A to tackle viewers' questions about indoor air quality and energy efficiency as the commercial buildings landscape undergoes a fundamental shift.
While most people associate utility incentives with building efficiency upgrades, the COVID-19 pandemic has begun to spur utility providers to start initiatives for indoor air quality (IAQ). In 75F's Dec. 15 webcast session, we discussed this shift with Great River Energy and Vermont Energy Investment Corporation.
In this webinar session, 75F paired with Cuningham Group Architecture and Revel Investments to explore how the Internet of Things is fundamentally enhancing Building Information Modeling (BIM) with real-time data that informs dimensions relating to sustainability, maintenance, and health.
Benchmarking has been a topic of interest and discussion for a long time now. In this blog, we look at what is benchmarking and why it necessary to achieve results. This is part one of our deep-dive into benchmarking. Stay tuned for the next one where we look at how to benchmark for building efficiency!
