Smart Energy Management
"In my opinion, the key to success is smart management of your energy flows. That is only possible with a smart building management system. I have that conviction after fifteen years in the business. At VIVES, we have been working with a standard norm for managing our BMS systems since 2016. In a nutshell, this means that our systems must be as smart as possible because by doing so, you gain a lot in efficiency, make data transparent and save costs. In the meantime, more than eighty per cent of all our BMS systems meet this standard", says Guy.
"Since we base our standard on Priva, we started early 2020 with version 1.3 of our standard GBS management, an update of version 1.2. The most important adjustment to this standard is the introduction of ecoBuilding, with which we are doing a pilot carried out by Priva's Flemish installation partner Cenergie. ecoBuilding is a complex and computationally powerful application that, from a control technology perspective, makes dynamic control possible that was not possible before. The nice thing is that we could also easily implement ecoBuilding in one of our existing BMS systems as a trial".
