Give a Little Love to the Planet: Achieving Net Zero Goals with the I-System
This Valentine’s day, give a little love to something more than your significant other – the planet.
With sea levels on the rise, natural disasters becoming more frequent and food sources becoming increasingly sparse, it isn’t difficult to see the impact that our behaviours, whether we recognise them as a big deal or not, are having on the planet.
Organisations across the globe are now under more pressure than ever to reduce carbon emissions and do their bit to ensure the safety of the planet that we call home.
In the UK, our Government has set the world’s most ambitious climate changes target, aiming to reduce emissions by 78% by 2035 compared to 1990 levels.
But changes are being made. According to Bloomberg NEF, global low-carbon energy technology investment surpassed $1 trillion for the first time in 2020.
While reaching net zero isn’t an easy challenge (in fact it’s likely the greatest innovation challenge humankind has ever faced), embracing new technology provides a significant way forward when it comes to reaching our carbon goals.
The Invisible Systems team is passionate about the positive change technology can make for the environment.
We truly believe that Internet of Things solutions like ours empower companies to improve their operational efficiency and use resources more effectively, reducing waste, carbon emissions environmental impact.
Our I-System is a cutting-edge IoT solution, offering businesses a powerful tool to achieve their sustainability goals by providing data insights on their energy usage and other conditions within your organisation.
What is the I-System?
The I-System is a network of interconnected devices, sensors and gateways, that monitor various aspects of a business's operations and transmit real-time data to a bespoke online platform. This data is analysed to identify areas where improvements can be made in energy efficiency and sustainability.
How the I-System Can Benefit Your Business?
The I-System offers numerous benefits to businesses looking to achieve their net zero goals.
For instance, by monitoring the energy consumption of a building's HVAC system, the I-System can help you fine-tune the system to minimize energy waste. Similarly, by monitoring the energy usage of office equipment, such as computers and printers, businesses can implement power-saving strategies when the equipment is not in use.
The I-System can also help companies make data-driven decisions towards sustainability by providing insights into their energy usage. This information can be used to implement energy-saving initiatives, such as upgrading to more energy-efficient equipment, or implementing renewable energy sources.
In addition, the I-System can play a role in encouraging employees to adopt more sustainable behaviours.
When employees take breaks, attend meetings, or go to lunch, office computers are left unattended for at least two hours each day. During this time, each PC consumes approximately 200 watts of electricity, or 0.2 kilowatts, costing 1.5 pence per hour. Although this may seem like a small amount, when multiplied by a workforce of 100, it results in an unnecessary expense of £15 per five-day workweek and a yearly total of nearly £700.
By providing real-time data on energy usage, the platform can help businesses educate employees on the impact of their actions and encourage them to make small changes, such as reducing energy consumption in the office or using public transportation.
The I-System offers businesses a powerful tool to achieve their net zero goals by providing data insights into their energy usage. With its real-time monitoring capabilities and data analysis features, the I-System provides companies with a comprehensive and data-driven approach to sustainability.
Whether you're a small business or a large corporation, the I-System is an IoT solution worth exploring to maximize your energy efficiency and achieve your net zero goals.
