hello energy and Prologis visualize sustainability
Early 2017 saw Prologis, a global investor and developer of sustainable logistic storage and distribution centers, equip its first buildings with hello energy: software for communicating and visualizing energy consumption and sustainability.
It marked the first step towards a joint goal: providing building users with an insight into energy consumption and sustainability performance. “hello energy gives us the opportunity to communicate our ambitions in the field of sustainability in an informative and attractive manner,” says Arthur van Kooij, VP development Benelux at Prologis. “Using this software also strengthens our position as a frontrunner in innovation.”
Prologis has a strong focus on sustainability. A range of impressive results in 2016 include the installation of 165 MW in solar panels, and obtaining 223 certificates for sustainable construction for a total of 6.4 million m2 in 16 countries. In addition, 78% of the company’s total building portfolio was equipped with efficient lighting and 36% has cool roofs. “We think it’s important to share these achievements and use them to inspire others,” adds Van Kooij.
hello energy has currently been implemented in six pilot projects in the Netherlands. “hello energy perfectly fits with our CO2 reduction ambitions,” says René Vos, facility specialist for DHL, situated in DC2 in Nieuwegein. “It gives us a way to communicate to visitors and staff about sustainability, BREEAM and our GOGREEN plan.”. Another location was in Tilburg for Coolblue (see image below).
The hello energy software was realized in Prologis’ own house style. From the landing page to the animations shown on screens, the identity of Prologis has been fully integrated (see images below).
“hello energy is ideal for companies who have a strong focus on sustainability and energy,” comments founder Benno Schwarz. “It is an attractive and easy way to inform users, visitors and clients of the sustainable measures taken and energy savings realized. For hello energy, the partnership is a unique opportunity to work for Prologis on a global level at a later stage.”
Below an example of the playlist on display at Prologis Nieuwegein DC2.
