Small and medium sized buildings make up a significant part of the commercial building stock which accounts for nearly half of total global energy usage. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are responsible for 40% of this energy consumption, yet 30% is wasted due to inefficient operations.

BrainBox AI’s autonomous decarbonization solution measures, models, learns, and continuously optimizes your HVAC systems to reduce your retail footprint’s operational emissions.

Speed up your journey to net zero with autonomous decarbonization.

Mapping & learning

Retail Building Icon - Learning and maping_RH

  • BrainBox AI connects to your HVAC system through your existing networked control system or via the implementation of cloud-connected AI-enabled thermostats.
  • Once connected, our solution maps your system’s point names using industry-standard Haystack tagging and normalises the data set.
  • After the initial learning phase is completed, virtual tests are run to choose the algorithms that are right for your building based on its unique thermal behavior.

  • External information such as current and forecasted weather, utility tariff structures, grid emission factors, and occupant density (if available) is fed to our AI engine.
  • BrainBox AI predicts the future state of your building with 99.6% accuracy to guide decision-making.
  • Deploying the right set of algorithms, the AI engine autonomously writes back to individual pieces of HVAC equipment, making necessary adjustments every 5 minutes.
  • The system is further optimized with RTU coordination, humidity & dewpoint control (when applicable), and demand control ventilation.
