Municipal Buildings

Now more than ever, government and municipal buildings are under pressure to lead the way in achieving energy efficiency goals and reducing carbon emission in their buildings.

Cylon have been helping municipal buildings achieve energy efficiency savings with our smart connected range of HVAC controls, flexible lighting control and extensibility to include ancillary building services. This is combined with real-time information on building conditions and powerful energy management that analyzes energy consumption and target savings in a building, enabling energy efficiency improvements and the continuous commissioning of buildings.

A properly commissioned, installed and managed Building Energy Management System can yield up to 39% energy savings in offices, 34% in schools and 18% in hospitals, etc., resulting in real and significant savings on public funds.

Municipal buildings can save substantial utility costs with the installation of Cylon smart building solutions that effectively manage HVAC and lighting, the largest users of energy in modern buildings, and prevent up to 20% building energy drift per annum through continuous monitoring and management of building energy usage with Cylon energy management tools.

Intelligent IoT BEMS control | beyond automation

A well commissioned and programmed BMS will deliver on schedules, switching lightings on and off at set times/days and adjusting HVAC according to expected occupancy.

 

An intelligent IoT BMS goes beyond schedules and expectations and operates on actual sensor data to make adjustments, turn lights on and off, and adjust HVAC in meeting rooms depending on occupancy, no need to worry about lights being left on in empty meeting rooms all day.

 

And if it’s a brighter warmer day than expect, external temperature sensors, weather data, room light, and temperature sensors feed information back to the BMS causing it to react and make intelligent adjustments to lighting, shading, and HVAC to ensure occupant comfort is maintained at all times.

There are no limits to the number of information points or geographical locations that can be connected to the system which makes it an ideal central energy monitoring and management tool for multisite and multi-building organizations. 

  • Increase a building’s energy efficiency.
  • Reduce operational costs and carbon footprint.
  • Reduce a building's CO2 footprint.
  • Monitor performance, target improvements, and measure project returns.
  • Generate energy trends, charts, and reports securely from the cloud.
  • Rationalize energy data based on historical weather patterns, user access, conservation measures, and more.
  • Identify key problem spots in energy usage, rectify, and show true ROI.
  • Simplify building operations | Integration and data collection with 3rd party systems enables centralized energy management overview of a range of diverse systems.

 

Cylon Active Energy Manager issues alarms via email and push notification services when it detects anomalies in expected consumption, putting you in control.

 

    • Alarms can be viewed via the map-based interface, particularly useful for a quick overview of multiple buildings in multiple locations.

    • View actual normalized energy usage against patterns of expected consumption and identify the drivers of your energy consumption to produce information you can act on that will help deliver energy savings.

    • Active Energy Manager allows you to compare meters, view data by time period, calculate energy costs and carbon emissions and more.

    • Access regression analysis, overspend and consumption charts.

    • Multi-building energy performance benchmarking.

    • Active Energy Manager fully customized reporting feature allows you to generate instant or scheduled reports on energy consumption, costs, carbon emissions, performance versus targets, as well as tenant costs reports.

Efficient operations

  • Simplify the management of a building portfolio across a wide geographical area.

  • Real-time alerts and alarms | ASPECT® collects data every 5 seconds and via services such as Pushover issuing alerts immediately, facility managers can monitor equipment performance, track anomalies of operation outside of setpoints and acceptable parameters, and react to resolve any issues quickly, thus reducing downtime and ensuring consistent levels of occupant comfort.

  • Identify faults before they occur | Early alerts enable service teams to be on site quicker with the correct tools and equipment to take appropriate action.

  • Faster reaction time and efficient repairs considerably reduce maintenance costs over time and deliver more reliable and efficient systems.
    Reduce time spent on analysis across mixed platforms

  • Customizable user interface | Site dashboards are easily user-customizable, allowing equipment, schedules, trends and more to be added as favourites for quick access.
