Making Our IBX Headquarters Even Greener

We hear quite a bit about synthetic intelligence (AI) today, each good and dangerous. However proper now, I take into account AI to be an excellent factor.

AI has helped make our Independence Blue Cross (IBX) headquarters, situated at 1901 Market Avenue in Philadelphia, rather more power environment friendly. In reality, we anticipate to save 10 to 13.7 % per 12 months on electrical energy prices over the subsequent 15 – 20 years!

IBX has all the time made power effectivity a precedence. We maintained an ENERGY STAR® certification from the U.S. Environmental Safety Company for 5 years. And we’re on the lookout for methods to make use of even much less power…as a result of it’s higher for the planet and helps decrease our working bills.

Our newest resolution? Working with the Tech Influence Group, we turned the primary industrial constructing in america to implement the SENERQON scientific power optimization system. It makes use of AI simulations and scientific algorithms to determine inefficiencies after which presents focused, personalized options to scale back power consumption.

Designing an Optimum Constructing Surroundings

The SENERQON workforce took real-time measurements at our constructing and reproduced them of their lab to find out the place energy and thermal-electrical losses occurred. Subsequent, they designed and put in customized interventions to assist stop these losses. Regardless of COVID-19, together with provide chain points and delays, this undertaking was accomplished in the summertime of 2023.

By way of thermal cooling, the SENERQON system is optimizing the ability utilization at our IBX headquarters. That locations much less stress on current constructing gear, which extends its life and lowers our upkeep bills.

As IBX seems towards the longer term, it’s rewarding to know that we’ve taken steps to make sure the constructing’s longevity whereas minimizing our carbon footprint. I take into account it one other large milestone in our ongoing efforts to champion sustainable practices.
