Commercial buildings face serious HVAC-related challenges due to the complex nature of Building Management Systems (BMS) and the limits of human operators. This leads to energy-waste and excessive CO2 emissions which makes it difficult to detect HVAC errors. R8tech’s product addresses this by detecting HVAC set-up errors, so that they can be corrected and by continuously optimising the BMS settings.
Overview of start-up
R8 Digital Operator is a cloud-based and Artificial Intelligence-driven software for real estate managers increasing the performance of HVAC (Heating, Ventilating, Cooling) systems and their technical servicing by autonomous control system. R8 Digital Operator can be integrated remotely according to the highest IT-security standards with almost any existing BMS without additional hardware. It takes intelligent and automated control & operating over the HVAC systems 24/7 cuts the total energy costs up to -30% (average is ca -15%) and improves indoor climate stability with novel fault diagnostics features. At the same time it can remain a dashboard free solution.
What makes the start-up innovative
The solution is 100% software and 100% AI-based autonomous control based. No obligatory User’s Interface. No additional investment needed. 3 main KPIs (indoor climate, energy efficiency and CO2 reduction, technical condition) are improved at the same time.
