Building intelligence is rapidly becoming an important resource for achieving and maintaining energy efficiency in commercial buildings. As renewable energy deployments and energy-efficiency upgrades are expanding to deliver cleaner and cheaper energy, ensuring that energy is consumed constructively can help maximize these benefits. If the intelligence existed to eliminate a few consumption redundancies dynamically, that might in fact result in higher and more immediate savings than other, more capital-intensive retrofit projects. The development of building intelligence can facilitate this by monitoring and reporting consumption at the sub-system level, developing models of occupant activities and supervising the overall building energy performance.
