The Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory estimates that between 5% and 30% of a building’s energy use is wasted due to faults and errors in operations. That’s where Monitoring-Based Commissioning (MBCx) comes in.
As the continent containing the most skyscrapers above 150 meters, each new high-rise in Asia must compete within a landscape of tall, supertall and megatall buildings – each of which demands more efficient performance benchmarks than the last.
At one point in the 20th century, modern skyscrapers were impossible, because power systems on the ground could only efficiently reach 30-40 stories high. Today, transformers rest at numerous points vertically in skyscrapers throughout the world, configured as stacked 30-40 story high-rises to form segmented tall buildings as vertical cities.
