BrainBox AI, a Canadian provider of autonomous artificial intelligence (AI) technology for corporate and commercial real estate, has announced Houston-based Fortune Energy Partners as its first master systems integrator.
BrainBox AI says that it offers building owners a technology that combines deep learning, cloud-based computing and algorithms to “support a self-operating building”. BrainBox AI’s solution enables the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems in a building to operate autonomously, in real-time, the company says, and claims that its use can lead to a reduction of up to 25% in total energy costs in less than 3 months, a 20-40% reduction in carbon footprint and a 60% increase in occupant comfort.
With this partnership, Fortune Energy Partners can provide its clients in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana with access to the latest energy consumption optimization technologies, the Canadian firm said.
BrainBox AI says its technology can be installed in two to three hours and does not require the deployment of sensors. Fortune Energy Partners is currently deploying the technology in over 7.2 million square feet of their customer portfolio.
BrainBox AI’s solution leverages AI to predict a building’s thermal load and enables the HVAC system to operate autonomously, in real-time, leading to significant energy and cost savings. BrainBox says its AI system simultaneously delivers predictive HVAC maintenance capabilities including a diagnostics dashboard that informs building managers ahead of time if a service issue is imminent.
“Adding the BrainBox AI solution to our service offerings allows Fortune Energy Partners to transform smart buildings to autonomous buildings,” said Kevin Murphy, vice president of development at Fortune Energy Partners. “As the first BrainBox AI Master Systems Integrator, we are excited to offer our clients a proven leading-edge sustainability solution that includes basic Fault Detection Diagnosis and 24/7/365 monitoring while achieving significant savings in total energy costs and a reduction in carbon-based emissions.”
“We are excited to have a company like Fortune Energy Partners as our first BrainBox AI Master Systems Integrator. Their core mission of ensuring the maximization of HVAC operating efficiency while driving cost savings aligns with BrainBox AI’s core mission of reducing CO2 emissions in the built-environment,” said Andy McMahon, director of channel sales at BrainBox AI.
Since its launch in May 2019, BrainBox AI says it has already teamed up with over 30 partners across the globe.
