Accenture Smart Building Solutions represent the convergence of building-controls technology and information management—a chance to reduce total heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) costs by 25 percent or more.
Buildings consume approximately 40 percent of the world’s energy— far more than the transportation sector.¹ And regardless of age, nearly every building—office complexes, hotels, hospitals, manufacturing plants, retail stores—wastes energy. Complicating matters further, buildings, tenants and building equipment represent a complex, interdependent system. Every structure runs differently, even when constructed or run by the same organization. Plus, energy consumption profiles and concerns differ not only across locations and structures, but with seasons and occupancy levels. Advanced energy-saving solutions must therefore cater to time as well as place.
Accenture Smart Building Solutions are designed with this complexity in mind. They work together to form a comprehensive suite of energy-management services to help companies reduce energy consumption, emissions and costs by capturing all energy-relevant information from a building’s systems, providing an analysis of that information and clearly articulating savings opportunities. Captured data is then used to adjust building systems to increase energy efficiency.
