Three smart steps towards preventing energy thieves in properties

Numerous energy thieves lurk in our workplaces and facilities, including machinery that remains operational after working hours and premises that are heated unnecessarily. This implies significant savings potential from making the properties more energy-efficient. Digitalization and smart technology can help with this.

Energy optimization

Properties represent as much as 35% of total global energy consumption, while demand for energy is increasing continuously. New innovations and the digitalization of properties can significantly reduce companies’ consumption of electricity and heating. This means that energy optimization is key to reduce the climate footprint while simultaneously reducing costs.

“SmartDrone allows us to inspect properties digitally rather than using equipment such as skylifts. Through automation and AI, it is also possible to pinpoint faults all the way down to the nuts and bolts level by using the 3D model created by the images captured by the drone,” Tomas Hultgren explains.

Digitalization of properties

The digitalization of properties has also meant that drones have become an unexpected climate hero in the fight to reduce energy consumption. The SmartDrone innovation uses drones to take tens of thousands of high-resolution images using heat cameras to pinpoint energy leaks and water damage. The images create a visual 3D model of the property which can also be used when planning maintenance work in the building—the number of windows or sections of the façade can easily be counted ahead of repainting, for example.
