Malmö’s Court of Appeal is equipped with Myrspoven’s myCoreAI to be ready for enhanced utilization at the same time as reducing the Environmental Footprint
It is likely that the burden on the Swedish legal apparatus will increase further in the future. This, in turn, requires adaptable facilities for enhanced utilization, while energy consumption must be reduced. With the help of AI, the property Flundran 2 in Malmö is equipped to meet the future needs of increased use. Property owner Vacse will ensure a good and stable indoor climate but at significantly lower energy consumption.
Myrspoven, an AI-powered energy optimization company, partnered with Vacse, a real estate company, to implement sustainable solutions in their buildings. Myrspoven’s solution myCoreAI allowed Vacse to analyze and optimize energy usage efficiently, leading to less energy costs and a reduced carbon footprint.
The collaboration between the two companies showcases the potential for AI companies and real estate to work together to create sustainable and cost-effective solutions for the future of energy usage in buildings.
“Significantly reducing energy consumption without affecting the indoor climate and comfort level is entirely possible with today’s AI technology,”
says Tobias Björk Andersson, Business Development Lead at Myrspoven.
There is a high pace in the energy efficiency work around Vacse’s property portfolio, which aligns with Vacse’s strategic direction to reduce energy use by 20% by 2030. Fundamental to the work is that the indoor climate for everyone who stays and operates in a property should be good and stable, regardless of the load on the facilities or people’s movement patterns.
“The judicial system has a critical function for society and must be able to focus on its mission entirely without disruption. Vacse’s task is to provide appropriate facilities that can, in an energy-efficient way, be adapted to changing needs and an increased load over time”
says Pierre Gylbert, Commercial Operations Manager at Vacse.
Based on a lot of data, such as external weather data, energy tariffs, and social data, together with unique measurements of indoor climate and carbon dioxide levels, the algorithms in myCoreAI gradually learned about how the building works.
– Every five minutes, myCoreAI reads data from the building’s control systems and sensors, and every 15 minutes, it calculates a large number of setpoints that are returned to the building’s control system, which autonomously regulates the heating, cooling, and ventilation systems. “During the project, we have gone from making six-hour forecasts to being able to model 48 hours ahead,” says Tobias Björk Andersson at Myrspoven.
– Everything has gone very well. Vacse has been very responsive to our views, and we have received all the information we needed throughout the project. The experience is that the indoor climate is now more even, and especially after a weekend; there has been a clear improvement, says Emma Regnér, Administrative Director at the Court of Appeal of Skåne and Blekinge.
The effects of the work have been quick. Since April 2022, electricity consumption has been reduced by 27% and district heating by 23%. Throughout the project, to optimize the property’s energy consumption, Vacse has maintained a continuous dialogue with the tenants about the efforts being made. This is to supervise the short-term impact that may arise from introducing the control system.
In parallel, another number of AI projects are underway in Vacse’s property portfolio, and, by virtue of the energy savings that have been shown to be possible, further investments with AI are planned for 2023.
