In an era when energy use has never been more critical to an operation’s success, having comprehensive management over a building’s power systems is vital.
Energy management is one of the aspects that intelligent building technology embraces, and its adoption in new builds or existing facilities is on the rise.
Communication, climate control and security are among other systems included in intelligent building technology, and it is fundamentally reshaping the ability of building managers and business leaders to create environments for optimal productivity, while controlling costs.
ABB Ability Energy and Asset Manager, a state-of-the-art cloud solution that integrates energy and asset management in a single intuitive dashboard, allows stakeholder to manage, monitor and optimise a building’s systems, delivering advantages across a range of segments.
This building management tool combines hardware sensors and analytics software for an advanced solution for facility, energy and asset managers.
It is helping companies around the world achieve higher efficiency and profitability by providing insights on energy consumption and performance of multiple systems in their facilities.
With a history of more than 130 years, ABB has established itself as a leading global technology company that “energises the transformation of society and industry to achieve a more productive, sustainable future”.
By connecting software to its electrification, robotics, automation and motion portfolio, ABB pushes the boundaries of technology to drive performance to new levels. ABB has around 110,000 talented employees in more than 100 countries.
As we know, when something can be measured, it can be improved, and that’s precisely what ABB Ability facilitates, handing stakeholders data-driven solutions.
Users can view, manage, and optimise building systems from anywhere, at any time, bringing flexibility and agility in not only managing one-off events but day-to-day operations without the restrictions on-site-only access imposes.
Predictive (condition-based) maintenance can be implemented with the system, ensuring the reliability and availability of power systems and equipment.
And energy usage is managed in real time, which means maximum energy efficiency and lower costs.
Product manager, digital transformation, at ABB Milad Mostowfivala said that based on reports from current users around the world, savings of around 20 per cent on energy costs were being experienced in facilities managed by ABB Ability.
“As well, the solution delivers around 40 per cent savings on maintenance costs, 30 per cent on operational costs—and a 100 per cent on unplanned labour,” he said.
“The cost savings are obviously significant, and speak directly to any operation’s bottom line, but the more efficient management of energy systems also has positive ramifications for an operation’s green footprint.
“You can learn how much your operations could save using ABB Ability by talking to us.”
The adoption of intelligent building technology is, across the world, bringing levels of management, efficiencies and cost savings that could previously only be dreamt about. ABB Ability is making it a reality.
