The energy required to heat, cool, and power our buildings is responsible for 19% of the UK’s carbon footprint. To make informed decisions about how we can best reduce a building’s operational emissions, we need better and more comprehensive data about its current performance. Currently, building data is often inconsistent, incomplete, or difficult to access, making it hard for building owners to make informed decisions to improve the operational performance of their buildings.
Prologis, a provider of distribution facilities, have more than 2,600 smart meters installed in 161 warehouses. With Rhino, Prologis can automate tenant billing and compare utility data with the goal of achieving more energy efficiency.
GLP Worldwide implemented Rhino in their buildings to address their challenges with billing tenants for their utility consumption and monitoring power supply requirements. With Rhino, GLP now has a tool that can help them improve their energy efficiency. Rhino monitors the energy, gas, and water usage in GLP’s buildings with all the information available in a single app. GLP’s tenants can now make sure their heating systems are properly functioning, device energy consumption is as expected, and there are no water leaks. Since using Rhino, GLP has noted an improved quality of their spaces, lower utility consumption, and a reduced carbon footprint.
