Energy Efficiency

Control & save energy

Every building is unique! Each has a variety of HVAC infrastructure & controls, but also a range of stakeholder relationships.

Each building will need to reach net zero. We help buildings efficiently deliver a comfortable and productive space that occupiers can enjoy – by focusing on the ventilation.

How we approach net zero

Need help getting started?

Each building is unique. Our approach is to review the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) infrastructure in detail, engaging with your supply chain and stakeholders, to prepare the business case for HVAC optimisation and upgrade. We can also deploy an occupancy, IAQ and energy monitoring solution at this stage.

Know what you need already?
Control strategy & implementation.

At our core the LightFi system and sensors are specifically made to feed into existing building systems. But we take it a step further by working together with integrators, BMS engineers, M&E consultants and installers, to design and implement efficient and effective dynamic control strategies, with HVAC hardware upgrades where necessary.

Ongoing support
Across our system and services.

We provide ongoing support whilst our sensors are deployed and active. Ensuring that you always get the best performance from your building. Likewise we can recommend upgrades to specific products based on your evolving requirements.

HVAC OPTIMISATION & AUTOMATION

Dynamic building control

Our patented dynamic control sensors and full range of occupancy and IAQ data integrates directly into any building control or building management system (BMS).

Fully integrated with the BMS, we work together with your engineers to design an efficient dynamic control strategy that allows the HVAC supply to be relative to the amount of people in the space.

“During COVID lockdowns, we had 95% of staff working from home but energy usage was down by 50% only. We need to stop wasting energy on empty spaces.”

Results

Meaningful energy and carbon savings

Through the addition of dynamic control to their HVAC system, our clients have achieved significant energy and carbon savings.

Per year, for a 100,000 sq. ft building

Amounting to 10% – 25% savings of a build’s total energy use. That’s a 9 to 24 months return on investment for a smart building solution capable of much more than carbon and energy savings.

Additional benefits

When using on-demand ventilation control

Tenants & occupiers

Better thermal support

Improved well-being and engagement

Reduced number of complaints

Service providers

Easy to deploy & implement

Longer HVAC lifetime & better performance

Intuitive software

More insights for planned replacements

Landlords

Increased rental income

Cheaper debt and access to green finance

Increased capital value (NABERS, BREEAM, WELL, GRESB)

“We shouldn’t talk about energy efficiency or well-being in isolation, but in association with other aspects of comfort and space use. Both are part of a system.”

VENTILATION INFRASTRUCTURE UPGRADE

SuperAHUTM

We’ve teamed up with leading integrators and installers to deliver targeted ventilation infrastructure upgrades that improve the efficiency and performance of existing systems.

The SuperAHUTM upgrade includes:

Installing Modulating Volume Control Dampers on ducting for each floor/zone

Replacing AHU scroll fans with an array of EC plug fans (optional)

Installing UVC or ionisation to clean return air

Benefits of the SuperAHUTM are:

Larger ventilation capacity and improved fresh air delivery with granular floor and zone control

Higher energy savings and better building EPC rating

Dynamic building control

Whether you already know what you need, or you’d like some help continuing your building’s net zero journey – our system architecture and approach can help.
