ProptechOS provided connectivity of each electricity consuming equipment to the flex market while significantly reducing the number of integrations needed. ProptechOS also provided support for value-added services such as predictive modeling of future electricity consumption.
Based on stored historical data of electrical usage of charging stations and buildings in ProptechOS, a predictive model of future consumption was calculated for the Vasakronan portfolio. The model also predicted the minimum possible reduction of electricity to keep mission critical equipment running during peak demand and calculate the possible savings of using the flex market. Combined, the functionality supported Vasakronan’s capacity planning and demand forecasting, further reducing costs.
The project unfolded by adopting ProptechOS as a coordinating platform which allowed Vasakronan to create digital twins of their energy consuming equipment such as heating pumps, ventilation, and electrical vehicle charging stations. The digital twins were then connected to Entelios and further to the sthlmflex market. ProptechOS interoperability ensured that integrations between the electrical vehicle chargers and other systems to Entelios would be in place for future expansion of the scope of devices to be connected, reducing the time and cost of implementation due to the significant reduction of needed integrations.
