The cost of thermal control in commercial buildings is a big issue. Buildings heat up in summer, and much of it caused by direct radiance through windows – with the result that up to 85% of total building energy consumption is used for cooling.
Longer and more intense heat wave periods which are now a reality in many parts of the world adds to the problem. The cost issue is further compounded by higher time-of-use tariffs during daily demand peaks.
How does it work?
Solar energy generation, energy efficiency and occupant comfort are optimised by the intelligent automation system.
It manages slat position with inputs from sensors and other variables to reduce building energy consumption.
