The biggest problem that we are facing comes from small and medium-sized buildings below 50k ft2 that do not have any BMS or smart system installed in their building.
90% of commercial buildings do not have and cannot afford BMS with an unnecessary waste of energy consumption of up to 25%!
This leads up to a gigantic waste of 750 trillion BTUs.
Most of the waste is due to the inability to control end-uses during unoccupied hours, weekends, and holidays.
The most important reasons why BMS and EMS systems are not adopted in small medium-sized commercial buildings can be summaries into 5 major factors.
BMS AND BAS SYSTEMS ARE EXPENSIVE TO BUY, INSTALL AND MAINTAIN
THOSE SYSTEMS ARE DIFFICULT TO INSTALL
SPLIT INCENTIVES BETWEEN OWNERS AND TENANTS
DIFFICULT TO MANAGE AND OPERATE
LACK OF AWARENESS OF ADOPTIVE OPERATIONS
