Ecospectral has been awarded funding under the ACT Government’s Renewable Energy Innovation Fund program to support the commercialisation of the BRIM system – a Distributed Intelligent Internet of Things solution for commercial buildings.
The ACT Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability Shane Rattenbury has announced that Ecospectral has been awarded funding to support the commercialisation of the second generation of its BRIM system – a distributed intelligent Internet of Things (DI-IoT) solution for commercial buildings.
The BRIM system is a sensing, control and demand management solution that reduces energy consumption and improves safety and comfort according to how and when people use the space in the building.
The BRIM system is unique in being able to shift and shed energy for a room or floor – not just the whole building. This gives a client great flexibility in operating its business and can mitigate the risk of inefficient operations and lost revenue.
Energy consumption is optimised according to the patterns of use of the building by the people within it.
“The benefits of BRIM are wide ranging and apply to many situations” said founder and CEO, David Keightley. At the moment the company is focussed on commercial offices and commercial accommodation. However the surge in electricity costs means we receive growing interest for other sites and purposes such as warehouses, retirement villages and smart cities.
