Schneider Electric announced the launch of EcoStruxure Building Graph, a new building operating system and linked data platform.
The French company said that the operating system will provide the digital twin of buildings for seamless access to building systems’ data and control.
EcoStruxure Building Graph will connect data across various systems and IoT devices, enabling secure data accessibility and application development.
The firm noted that EcoStruxure Building Graph removes the complexities of integrating building systems and accessing building data in siloed environments. By introducing technology and system integration as a core component of the design phase of the building value chain, buildings will be future-proof and enable sustainable, resilient, efficient, and people-centric use cases.
“Buildings are becoming smarter and more connected resulting in an exponential growth of data,” said Luis D’Acosta, EVP of Digital Energy Global at Schneider Electric. “Making the most of the data generated by buildings and people within them is key to delivering the full value of digitization. EcoStruxure Building Graph removes the complexities that come with integrating building systems and provides application developers with the real-time data access they need to solve customer pain points, increase operational efficiency and deliver a better occupant experience.”
EcoStruxure Building Graph’s technology integrates with Schneider Electric’s on-premise connected room solutions and BMS through EcoStruxure Building Operation. It is also complemented by Schneider Electric’s native cloud applications, Engage Enterprise and Building Advisor, as well as industry partner Planon.
Schneider Electric said that the Dar Group, a privately-owned professional services group, is putting EcoStruxure Building Graph to use at its new 19,000-square-foot European headquarters in London.
Andrew Loudon, UK&E MD at Dar Group, said: “Schneider Electric and its EcoStruxure Building Graph building operating system supports Dar’s sustainability goals by eliminating silos to monitor systems and aggregate data, making the data accessible in a secure, contextualized manner for these important ongoing reporting purposes. At the same time, we will be able to leverage data to create a people-centric work environment focused on our employees’ well-being. The EcoStruxure platform using open frameworks, standards and applications enables the potential for future integrations and functionality, and this iconic building sets a new standard for buildings of the future and will serve as a model for all our new commercial office designs moving forward.”
