How we do it
VBoptimum gets to the heart of the building: the climate systems. We do this by creating a Digital Twin (digital copy), containing all energy data, building properties and the performance of the climate installations. In this Digital Twin, algorithms get to know the building and its installations well. And we can check whether the installations are doing what they are supposed to do. There is a lot to be gained here, because experience shows that some 70% of building installations do not work properly.
With a trained Digital Twin, we are taking the next step. Self-learning algorithms will predict how energy in the building can be used in the most optimal way, fully automated. It takes into account things like weather forecast, solar radiation and availability of renewable energy. This works together with the building management system and thus provides an average of 15 to 30% energy and CO2 savings, structurally!
Data driven sustainability
The Digital Twin knows the building in detail. It knows exactly how it heats and cools and how much energy it needs to do so. A unique source of knowledge that is also used for simulations, such as during renovations. For example, the step from a boiler to a heat pump, the investment in an air handling unit and/or insulating the facade. Based on your data from your building, the Digital Twin can tell you perfectly which investment will best suit your specific situation.
