Commercial building facility and energy managers now have the option of a powerful new tool to analyze building usage and emissions with the launch of the ABB Ability™ Building Analyzer. The new digital solution provides comprehensive and actionable insights that can deliver on cost reductions, improved energy efficiency, time savings and increased comfort, allowing users to make critical steps on their building decarbonization journey.
Beth Ray, Head of Global Digital Solutions Portfolio, Commercial Buildings in ABB Electrification’s Smart Buildings Division said, “Buildings and construction consume more than 30% of the world’s energy and generate nearly 40% of global CO2 emissions. With significant presales already, our new ABB Ability™ Building Analyzer is directly addressing customer demands amid today’s energy challenges and the need to lower energy costs. As an intuitive, comprehensive and accessible digital tool it can not only bring costs under greater control but establishes the baseline and path towards full building decarbonization, by helping reduce building energy consumption by up to 20%.”
Launching in Belgium, Canada, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, and Switzerland, Building Analyzer enables centralization of all critical building operation information providing analysis that allows for potential improvement opportunities. It tracks both buildings data (occupancy, equipment runtime hours, temperatures, and costs) and utilities (energy, gas, water, steam) in real time from almost any kind of data source and an unlimited number of data points.
Facility and energy managers that need to meet budget and energy targets will save time and money when using the granular data, deeper insights, target setting, heat maps, alerts and reporting features provided by the Building Analyzer and gain a holistic view of their commercial buildings’ portfolio across the globe.
As a cloud-based SaaS solution, ABB Ability™ Building Analyzer extracts the building data gathered from meters and sensors, logged in various systems, over a secure internet connection. Manufacturer agnostic, open and highly flexible, it is suitable for commercial buildings of any size and tenant-type and allows its users to connect to the service from any geographical location. The building intelligence tool provides easy onboarding and commissioning and supports compliance with legislation, industry standards and corporate sustainability goals.
