Equans Launches Digital Decarbonisation Platform

Equans Launches Digital Decarbonisation Platform
15 May 2023 | Updated 17 May 2023

FM and technical services brand Equans has launched a new digital platform to help organisations manage large estates.

“Smartr” communicates data from across a building or estate to provide an overview of a site’s performance, including energy and carbon use. It also allows users to control costs with remote management, diagnostics and asset integration, and use all-in-one reporting analytics

The platform also integrates soft services such as room booking, visitor management, smart parking, building access and wayfinding.

Equans says that un-optimised systems in buildings typically waste more than 20 per cent of their energy consumption through poor configuration and scheduling that is not in line with operational requirements or environmental conditions. By using the Smartr platform, building owners and managers can also look at the bigger picture, make better decisions faster, spot opportunities for automation and improved control of systems - and deploy remote fixes. 

James Graham, Divisional CEO for Equans UK & Ireland, said: “The challenges faced by large estates are growing - from the push of soaring energy costs to the pull of net zero targets, staff wellbeing and sustainability commitments.  This requires a step change in how we manage our business and the built environment, enabled by the Smartr platform.

“The UK must decarbonise buildings across every sector and the appetite for this technology is strong, so we have every confidence in the launch of Smartr. By using Smartr, customers can improve their environmental impact while maximising efficiency, helping them to meet their environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals and obligations.”
