Large office buildings often have trouble tracking sizable integrated systems like temperature control. When our company wanted to go green, they sent a memo to all of executives for ideas. My partner was actually working as a systems analyst for the software company downtown. They specialize in the upgrading of building management systems. I recommended we have our temperature control system monitored to save on energy. The temperature control system functions in numerous ways to save a company currency. First, the temperature control plan is set up with three unique modes. Each mode has its own certain temperature ranges. The unique modes correspond to the certain temperature needs of our building! Occupancy mode puts our entire temperature automation system to a temperature of 71 degrees, with relative humidity of 13%. At night, when our building is not occupied, the temperature control system switches to sleep mode which consists of the shutting down of the Heating and Air Conditioning system to the bare minimum. An analytics company can also use the collected data to help find other ways for saving on energy consumption. When I pitched this idea to the board, they were ecstatic with the initiative. They sounded really interested, as well as I got a call a few days after. They asked me to supply an entire presentation regarding this energy saving solution, and told me to make it my number one priority. I’ve been diligently working on the plan all week. I know this might be a rare opening for me. If the board is good with my ideas, it could mean a sizable promotion as well as a steep raise.
