Dubai Joins Building Efficiency Accelerator Initiative (Int'l.)
Dubai Supreme Council of Energy
Date: 2019-09-11
The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy reports it has joined the Building Efficiency Accelerator (BEA) Initiative, which is pledged to double the rate of energy efficiency improvement in the building sector by 2030.

The BEA Initiative was launched by The World Resources Institute (WRI) and Johnson Controls (JCI) to increase awareness and adoption of building energy efficiency programs. The Initiative aims to build market awareness and action on local government leadership by example, particularly in the developing world, local benchmarking and sustainable building certification and labeling approaches, innovative financing to support efficiency investments and distributed energy systems at the building and community scale.

Johnson Controls Releases Enterprise Management 2.0 Platform (Ind. Report, New Prod & Tech)
Johnson Controls
Date: 2019-06-05
In Milwaukee, Johnson Controls is reporting the release of Enterprise Management 2.0, an open, scalable, comprehensive analytics platform with cloud-based versatility that enables enterprises to take a proactive approach to managing a building or an entire portfolio from a single pane of glass.

Enterprise Management is an energy, asset, occupant and tenant billing management system that utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies to proactively analyze building data across the enterprise to identify opportunities to save money and streamline operations. Some features of the updated platform include:

  • Energy Management: Energy use -- thermal, water, electrical, storage, carbon -- can be tracked, analyzed and managed, allowing users to forecast energy usage in advance and adjust behavior accordingly.

  • Space Performance: Start with data for real understanding of building spaces and how they are used. Uncover underutilized spaces or get the true story behind complaints about conference room overbooking.

  • Data Visualization Widgets: Define a dashboard or use one of the available templates. This puts the power to predict, prioritize, perform, analyze, manage, question and share in the customer's hands.

  • Financial Health & Utility Bill Management: Track and manage each enterprise location with a broad view of costs and returns related to utility consumption, people services (such as cafeteria), space / infrastructure services (such as waste management), plus capital expenses -- all in one easy-to-use app.

  • Asset Performance & Maintenance Management: The Asset Performance App uses Fault Detection & Diagnostics to generate and track work orders, review equipment fault trends, and improves customer experiences.

    Survey Notes Increased Energy Efficiency Spending (Int'l Report)
    Johnson Controls
    Date: 2019-05-20
    In its 2018 Energy Efficiency Indicator Survey, Johnson Controls noted more than half of global organizations planned to increase spending on energy efficiency over next 12 months -- 2019. The survey of nearly 2,000 facility and energy management executives from 20 countries found that 57 pct of organizations in the U.S. and 59 pct of global organizations planned to increase investment in energy efficiency, smart building measures including building controls and building systems integration at a greater rate than more traditional energy efficiency measures in 2019.

    Survey organizations identify greenhouse gas footprint reduction, energy cost savings, energy security and enhanced reputation as key drivers of investment fueling growth in green, net zero energy and resilient buildings. Building controls improvements were cited as the most popular investment energy efficiency related investments.

    In Johnson Control's 2008 survey, under 10 pct of respondents had a certified "green" building and only 34 pct planned to certify new construction projects to a recognized green standard. In 2018, 19 pct of U.S. organizations have already achieved voluntary green building certification for at least one of their facilities, and 53 pct plan to in the future. Globally, 14 pct of organizations have achieved voluntary green building certification for at least one of their facilities and 44 pct plan to in the future.

    The survey also notes a year-over-year increase in net-zero energy goals, with 61 pct of U.S. organizations extremely or very likely to have one or more facilities that are nearly zero, net zero or positive energy/carbon in the next ten years.(Source: Johnson Controls, Building Design & Construction, Nov., 2018)Contact: Johnson Controls, Clay Nesler, VP Global Sustainability, www.linkedin.com/in/clay-nesler-171a133, www.johnsoncontrols.com/corporate-sustainability/reporting-and-policies/business-and-sustainability-report/environmental-leadership/sustainable-solutions, www.johnsoncontrols.com
