Building Sustainability with Cisco
Calculate your Energy Savings
Use our energy savings calculator to see how much your organization could save on energy costs. Leverage your Cisco hardware and software to optimize energy based on the actual number of people in the building.
for every hour of reduction in energy consumed by setting back the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) based on actual number of people in the building.
How does this work?
Set back HVAC (Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) and lighting levels to align them with building occupancy data from your Cisco infrastructure and Cisco Spaces.
Save energy by adjusting the consumption to the actual usage patterns of the building by turning settings down and running building systems in ‘Unoccupied’ mode for longer periods of time, rather than fixed schedule operations.
- Based on Department of Energy’s estimates that an average commercial building consumes 22.5 Kwh energy per sq.ft per year.
- Number of working days per year is 260 number of work hours per day is 8 (CRM.org).
- Commercial office building subsector energy savings from smart building technologies – 10% (American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy)
