Vigilent applies AI to dynamically optimize the indoor environment, energy and carbon emissions of commercial buildings. Machine learning monitors sensor data to learn how HVAC equipment affects temperature and other environmental conditions throughout a building. Vigilent artificial intelligence then adjusts HVAC settings in real-time, ensuring that building conditions are perfectly suited for occupants and equipment (such as IT servers in data centers) while operating in the most efficient manner possible. It takes just a few weeks to deploy the platform. Results are immediate, automatic and persistent: (1) improve building health vs. SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses; (2) energy and carbon emission reductions of 15-40% depending on the type of building; (3) elimination of hot and cold spots of up to 99%, significantly reducing occupant discomfort and the risk of thermal outages to IT applications; (4) HVAC capacity increase of 10-15%. Vigilent has almost 900 deployments across six continents, and is enabling the autonomous optimization of over 2 million square meters of facilities worldwide. Vigilent technology is also delivering an annual reduction of 250 million metric tons of CO2.
