Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Energy uses solar cells, made of semi-conducting materials. When sunlight is absorbed by these materials, the solar energy knocks electrons loose from their atoms, allowing the electrons to flow through the material. It uses a process of converting light (photons) to electricity (voltage) called the photoelectric (PV) [...]
Environmental Monitoring is the strategy and process of observing, tracking, evaluating, and quantifying the impact something has on the quality of the environment. Environmental Monitoring Systems and Solutions can be used by organizations to reduce negative impacts they have on the environment.
Energy Management Solutions are the means by which energy consumption is tracked, analyzed, controlled, monitored, and optimized with the goal of reducing consumption and/or associated costs.
Energy Management is the process of tracking energy use and collecting/analyzing the data.
Green Energy is a form of energy that is capable of generating power from renewable resources. The most common types of Green Energy are generated from solar, wind, and/or water.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that uses various tools, technologies, and software to create a digital representation of a building or space to visually represent the physical and functional characteristics of it. This is just one of the many tools Engineering PLUS uses to create Smart Building designs [...]
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to any devices, machines, objects, hardware, software, services, and/or technologies able to communicate over a network to collect, transfer, or exchange data.
Intelligent Building Solutions uses smart building technology to operate/manage building systems, plus integrate key technologies, such as Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities to optimize building operations take advantage of other key benefits, such as: Reducing energy costs Integrating systems Improving building operations, processes, and automation capabilities Enhancing decision making with [...]
The four basic elements of a Smart Building are: Structure Systems Services Management Smart Buildings integrate these four basic elements, utilizing technology to operate/manage these systems to optimize building operations.
Smart Building Technology Integration brings together an ecosystem comprised of devices and systems that integrates systems and delivers real-time data that building owners and managers can use to optimize building operations.
