Smart building technology offers many benefits, including reduced energy consumption, but it can also consume energy unnecessarily. Here are five areas where building owners can reduce that consumption:
- Turn off or hibernate non-essential technologies, such as Wi-Fi hotspots, desk phones, conference room reservation systems and digital signage.
- Disable applications and services that are not used or are no longer needed.
- Turn off idle network equipment to save power.
- Upgrade power supplies (UPS) and battery backup systems to improve energy efficiency.
- Improve the cooling capabilities of telecom rooms and cabinets by consolidating applications on shared hardware or using more efficient cooling technologies.
By following these recommendations, building owners can reduce the energy consumption of their smart technologies and realize long-term savings.
