Visualising energy consumption in real-time

Case Study Prologis

Prologis is an owner, operator, and developer of industrial real estate, focused on global and regional markets across the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Prologis also owns land for development. They have a long longstanding commitment to ESG, developing buildings to recognize sustainability standards, and building capital-intensive, future-focused projects. In 2020, they’ve launched a comprehensive digital transformation and innovation strategy. This blueprint led to their partnership with hello energy, offering them a new innovative and integrated tool to visualize and communicate energy consumption and sustainability impact within its logistics buildings.

The challenge

With Prologis’ long-standing commitment to sustainable business practices, they needed a solution that could:

Measure and detect energy consumption, including any inconsistencies

Monitor, compare, and benchmark energy performance

Gather information for use in industry surveys and sustainable certification processes

Communicate building data to interested stakeholders

Accurate, complete, and transparent data tracking is incredibly important to our sustainability initiatives, as well as that of our customers, It allows us to credibly quantify performance and to track progress toward sustainability goals.

The solution

With hello energy, Prologis can engage tenants and stakeholders to connect and create energy-positive buildings. Firstly, we collected, validated, and enriched sustainability data in eight different Prologis buildings in the Netherlands. This data came from energy meters and building management systems with data sensors.
We then connected this data in one central environment: our SaaS solution dashboard, accessible for the Prologis property team. Our solution also uses narrowcasting screens in the building to distribute the content to users such as the building’s occupants and visitors.
With this connected data now being in one place, Prologis can now use hello energy to tell engaging stories, give insight on their sustainable impact, and challenge to trigger behavioral change.

The results

The highly visual and immediate nature of the information that hello energy shows, advances the dialogue about sustainable practices and outcomes.

The Tool gives us the opportunity to communicate our sustainable ambition in an informative and attractive manner. Via a landing page, our customers have easy access to real-time energy data. Using this software also strengthens our ambition as a frontrunner in innovation.
