Turntide Technologies, developer of electrification and sustainable operations technologies, announced the rollout of its new smart building solution, dubbedTurntide for Buildings.
Turntide said that the new offering combines its Smart Motor System with automation software, connected edge equipment and cloud insights to improve energy efficiency and streamline building operations while reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
The firm noted that the operation of commercial and industrial buildings accounts for 40% of electricity consumed globally and 20% of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Even with the commitment of 200 countries to cut GHG by more than 50% by 2050, in the U.S. only 45% of companies are on track to reach net-zero emissions by that deadline, the firm said.
?It?s time to rethink the term ?sustainability,? said Brad Surak, chief product officer of Turntide. ?Until now, ?sustainability? may have meant reducing your environmental impact, but in 2021, it includes survival and growth for businesses – positively impacting everything from profitability to brand value to employee satisfaction. It means using fewer resources while improving your operations. Our solution offers businesses a tangible way to approach sustainability so it delivers strategic value across the organization and improves the bottom line.?
Turntide for Buildings gives owners, managers, and operators the visibility they need to control and maintain systems like HVAC and lighting, indoor air quality, and energy efficiency. It collects data from an ecosystem of connected equipment including the Smart Motor System and edge equipment such as smart thermostats, IAQ sensors, and gateway devices, to provide a dashboard of cloud insights and control capabilities that enables more efficient oversight and management across a portfolio of locations.
The new offering integrate with existing building management systems (BMS) and third-party applications within a portfolio of buildings via a single pane of glass. The solution also places schedules and setpoint rules on auto-pilot to maximize system efficiency and create custom alerts to inform proactive equipment maintenance schedules and avoid unplanned downtime.
The company said that Turntide for Buildings is ideal for commercial and industrial facilities such as banking, retail, convenience stores, restaurants, grocery, education, and warehouse facilities.
