MONTREAL, Québec--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BrainBox AI, a pioneer in autonomous building technology, today announced the launch of its Real Estate Energy Savings Calculator. The calculator and accompanying assessment give building owners and managers an immediate estimate of the energy savings that can be achieved by installing BrainBox AI’s cutting-edge technology. The calculator considers factors like building type and annual utility cost, illustrating the positive financial and environmental impact that BrainBox AI’s automation can have on a commercial building.
Using self-adapting artificial intelligence (AI) technology, BrainBox AI optimizes existing Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems, creating a self-operating building that requires no human intervention. This results in up to a 25% reduction in energy costs, a 20-40% reduction in carbon footprint and a 60% increase in occupant comfort in commercial real estate buildings, such as schools, medical facilities, hotels, retail stores and offices.
HVAC systems are responsible for 45% of commercial buildings’ energy consumption. BrainBox AI’s zero-CAPEX solution can empower building owners and facility managers to dramatically reduce their building’s energy spend and carbon emissions, moving them one step closer to net-zero carbon goals. Its scalability and ease of implementation allow for both individual building and portfolio-wide impact. With the BrainBox AI Real Estate Energy Savings Calculator, owners and managers can determine just how much they can save by automating their HVAC systems.
“BrainBox AI was created to help make commercial buildings considerably more energy efficient, thereby reducing their carbon footprint and making better use of existing building infrastructures. The development of the Real Estate Energy Savings Calculator is an important milestone in our mission to transform the commercial real estate industry with the implementation of advanced artificial intelligence technologies,” said Jean-Simon Venne, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of BrainBox AI.
BrainBox AI launched in 2019 and is already considerably reducing the carbon emissions of the commercial real estate industry, impacting over 100,000,000 sq. ft. of real estate across 16 countries, with clients such as AMP Capital, GWL Realty Advisors and Holiday Inn. Recently, BrainBox AI was recognized by TIME in 2020 as one of the Top 100 best inventions of the year and CB Insights as one of the Top 100 AI start-ups redefining industries in 2021. The company is also a member of the MaRS Discovery District, the largest urban innovation hub in North America.
