Our approach unleashes the potential of the building and matters for everything that happens inside and beyond the building. LET’S GO BEYOND. ™ Energy represents about 20 percent of total operating costs in a typical commercial building. Commercial real estate is expensive to maintain, and everyone is looking for the newest solutions to improve operation. Implementing building energy management solutions can help improve operations. Measuring progress and validating results can help ensure your investment is paying off. New building automation systems (BAS) provide web-enabled access so you can remotely monitor and manage your building or enterprise. You can manage multiple systems such as HVAC, lighting and security using a single, easy-to-use interface. Your BAS also provides a link to intelligent build- ing services that help improve efficiency and sustainability. Energy modeling programs and analytics tools measure energy usage to help you monitor, track and analyze the information your building provides. To see continuous improvement in your building’s performance, it’s not just the tools that matter. The right partner offers ongoing support to help you evaluate and analyze the data your building provides. You can measure results around the business impacts, but also around other indicators such as progress toward sustainability goals, occupant comfort and efficiency. The solutions available from Trane ® , a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, coupled with the expertise and support we provide, make it easy to measure performance and verify results. The bottom line is improved building performance. Trane and the Circle Logo are trademarks of Trane in the United States and other countries. Proving Results of Energy Management Projects
