How Quick is the Energy Payback with Smart Building Automation?

By John Nye on Jul 19, 2018 4:27:10 PM

When asked why they haven't invested in smart building automation systems (BAS), many people zone in on the ROI timeframe based upon energy savings, questioning whether the energy payback period is short enough to justify the upfront investment for their commercial buildings. The energy payback equation really is quite simple. And, new intelligent building automation systems can offer payback in as little as 1 year. Though, a focus solely on energy savings leaves out smart building returns that can be 10x to 100x higher, further shortening the BAS ROI timeframe.

Traditional building automation and controls systems are complex and expensive to implement and manage, creating a barrier to adoption for some businesses. So, only about 15% of commercial buildings have smart controls. Newer, born-in-the-cloud building controls solutions like 75F offer an affordable option and shorten the energy payback period, as a result of the lower initial Capital Expenditure (CapEx) investment, in addition to several ongoing Operating Expense (OpEx) savings. In some cases building automation systems deliver a return on your investment in as little as a year on energy savings alone, before factoring the other operational efficiencies and occupant experience value.
