This building – it’s a place to learn. It’s a place to compete. A place to practise, to improve. To invent. But above all, this building is a community.Marianne Harjula, Sello Event Manager
The analytics approach included space- and equipment-level trending analysis, a customized set of parameters for equipment performance and environmental conditions, as well as fault detection and diagnostics to ensure that issues are handled quickly and quantifiably.
The services were delivered both on site by a dedicated Siemens energy manager and building
automation maintenance staff right on site and remotely through a connection to the Digital Service Center and Navigator – the cloud-based energy and sustainability platform.
The relationship between Sello and Siemens started over 25 years ago and led to the shopping center’s first LEED certification as well as a 50 percent reduction in energy consumption and savings of €133,000 per year. The current efficiency program sees energy savings of €110,000 per year, a 20 percent reduction in CO2, and a 50 percent reduction in district heating.
The measures put in place have led to better air flow in certain areas, including restaurants where people spend the most time in a static position. When snowy weather is in the forecast, district heating can be used to proactively heat entrances and reduce ice buildup.
All of this helps provide a high-quality visitor experience and keeps emissions, operating costs and rents for shop owners as low as possible.
