"Building as a Battery" platform links CONCRETE floors” with smaller conventional HVAC equipment. It results into a sustainable building solution.
Pre-cast concrete slabs (known as “hollow core”) form an integral part rechargeable battery. This ability to supercharge and release is desirable in many buildings.
Dormant concrete when turned into "smart flooring" delivers many value streams. The building will forevermore leverages its own dormant asset to drive financial deficiency.
The system employs a reduced materials, equipment and costs compared to conventional buildings. This buildings have built in Resilience and Smart City ready. Long term benefit of reducing the carbon footprint makes business sense. Eliminating cost and complexity has main stream market appeal. Non-Utility financial benefits we predict easy to verify by third parties.
Supercharing in 3 easy steps
"Building as a Battery" awakens a sleeping giant. Strategic vision achieves change, relevance and predictable success. storing free or low cost cooling at night makes business sense. It is achievable in 3 practical steps.
- During unoccupied hours, cool nighttime air circulated through the "smart floor". This removes daytime absorbed heat and pre-cools the space for the next day.
- Off-peak pre-cooling strategy cools the building at night. Benefits from nigh time discount offered by utilities are instant. Day time peak demand for energy reduction assured.
- During occupied hours, heat from internal loads absorbed by the concrete slabs. This keep the space cooler. Absorbed energy flushed out at night while supercharging again
