“ The smarter buildings solution will help us find and address opportunities that were previously invisible to us. ”
—John DeMarco, Director, Real Estate Operations, IBM
Through a joint effort of IBM Global Business Services, IBM Software Group and IBM Alliance Partner Johnson Controls, IBM’s smarter buildings solution delivers new economic, operational and environmental benefits to IBM facilities.
With rising energy costs and the overall economic environment, commercial property owners are faced with a significant challenge: maintaining reliability and efficiency of their facilities while demonstrating environmental responsibility.
The integration of asset and service work-order management with energy and sustainability management analytics is a key enabler for reducing energy use and carbon emissions, and for sustaining these reductions.
A five percent year-over-year incremental energy savings is expected for a facility that has undergone years of energy efficiency improvements, and observations in the pilot indicate an eight percent annual savings from the equipment’s operating costs.
