Lassila & Tikanoja and Connected Inventions collaborate for energy-saving efforts for commercial properties – L&T Smartti Automation and Connected Inventions’ data collection solutions brought over 30% in energy savings to Technopolis.
Lassila & Tikanoja and Connected Inventions’ collaboration included the goal of delivering even greater savings for property managers and owners in energy consumptions. By combining L&T Smartti Automation, which optimises heating, cooling, and ventilation in buildings, with real-time indoor air quality data collected with Connected Invention’s IoT devices, significant savings can be achieved and resulting in more consistency to indoor conditions. We have already achieved very promising results already within the first several months in the pilot sites of Technopolis’ properties.
Connected Inventions and L&T’s collaboration brought together the Smartti Automation and IoT sensor solution for the customer. The integration between the solutions did not only bring savings in energy costs, and reduced CO2 emissions, but also enable them to advance their own ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) reporting and goals.
IoT solutions bring even more precise demand-controlled ventilation
L&T Smartti Automation is the building properties’ energy optimisation digital service. Smartti guides and drives the existing building management system and adjusts the ventilation accordingly. Smartti optimises ventilation, and energy consumption based on real-time data, allowing it to consider factors such as changing weather conditions and the thermal mass of the building. The indoor conditions in the building remained optimal, with no energy unnecessarily wasted. Smartti has been piloted and in use in Technopolis’ properties in Ruoholahti 3 since the start of 2021.
Additionally, Smartti AI’s integration with Connected Inventions’ AirWits Insight, an indoor air quality monitoring software solution, brings even greater benefits from the building automation system. The sensor solutions accurately monitor various parameters such as CO2 levels, temperature, and relative humidity of the building. Ultimately, allowing for better precision control over the building management system and its indoor conditions. In addition to the devices measuring indoor air quality, Connected Inventions also provides the communication infrastructure and software solution for data integration and visualisation through FoxerIoT and AirWits Insight.
“The IoT sensor solutions offer more precise indoor air conditions within buildings, whilst L&T Smartti automation AI can optimise conditions and energy consumption even more effectively than before. With this combination not only do we get energy savings, but also consistent indoor air and optimal conditions for building occupants.” tells Customer Relations Manager, Vantte Kenttä, Lassila & Tikanoja.
Demand controlled ventilation (DCV) Brought significant energy savings to Technopolis
Technopolis Ruoholahti 3’s property has piloted the integration between Smartti Automation and the IoT data collection sensor solutions in winter 2022. Already within the first few months we’ve seen profound results. The combination has achieved overall savings of over 30 percent in heating energy and 50 percent in ventilation energy consumption.
“L&T Smartti Automation and Connected Inventions’ IoT sensors’ pilot project results have been so good, so much so we’ve decided to implement it in other commercial buildings around Finland. In addition to energy efficiency, we were able to also confirm improved indoor air quality in the building property” says Head of Property Management Ismo Myllymäki, Technopolis
