POWERFLEXThe Digital Building Platform enables the implementation of our Powerflex control suite. Powerflex works in real-time to make your building and its assets work for you, enabling you to acquire very low cost power soaking up free renewable energy when there is too much on the grid.
With Future Decisions bespoke Machine Learning algorithms we are able to both predict your energy requirements of your building and induce precool and preheat control which allows you to coast over the expensive electricity times. In short we take your deadbands and put them to work for you.
HVAC & POWERFLEX
In most commercial buildings chillers, pumps and fans in HVAC systems are significant energy consumers. In addition to this, they are also the main factors determining building occupants’ comfort, wellbeing and productivity. Powerflex uses the Digital Building Platform to resolve this potential conflict by learning each building’s characteristics over a few weeks. After this time, the data is collected and analysed to build a model of the buildings energy flexibility. This model continually learns over time, thus remaining valid as the building’s environment, equipment and usage ages and evolves.
GUARANTEED TO COST YOU LESS
Implementing this control methodology guarantees to reduce your energy spend and will make your building that little bit greener. Using excess renewable energy at a fraction of the cost helps the grid, green generation and your energy bills. If you would like to know more please get in touch.
FlexDown minimises your building’s power use for periods in time when electricity is more expensive or the national grid is under strain. Future Decisions key algorithms mean that you can participate in all this without turning anything off or even noticing it’s happening. It is a fully automated system.
THE GOLDILOCKS ZONE™
The Goldilocks Zone ™ occurs when FlexUP and FlexDown are not being utilised. Furthermore, our Goldilocks Zone algorithm takes advantage of times when external air is ‘just right’. It keeps a record and adjusts the building’s air intakes accordingly to benefit from free cooling or heating of the environment.
