Application

Technological innovation to
revolutionise legacy solutions

Sabien is focused on the application of technologies to increase efficiency, reduce CO2 production and generate a return on investment; for our customers and for our shareholders. In the heating, cooling and transportation sectors we recognise that incumbent technologies will take some time before being displaced by carbon neutral alternatives. Our aim is to apply our expertise in developing technologies (cloud delivery, big data and artificial intelligence etc.) to make those legacy solutions much more efficient. That increase in efficiency has the potential to deliver dividends for us all.

Heating

Sustainability and building managers continue to face the same challenges when it comes to heating commercial buildings: how to cut carbon emissions, reduce operating spend, and achieve regulatory targets. The basic premise of heating infrastructure – the humble boiler – hasn’t changed in years. Inefficiencies in infrastructure remain, resulting in excess CO2 and unnecessary costs.

In many instances, heating infrastructure will remain unchanged for several years to come. Zero emission technologies require infrastructure changes at high cost and long lead times for implementation. Replacing gas with hydrogen for heating, for instance, doesn’t deliver in the short-term.

Major innovation and big new ideas are great, yet disrupting and transforming the heating sector takes time. Our focus should be on evolving current brownfield sites and enhancing and improving existing technologies. This is what it means to revolutionise.

This is a much faster, and more secure and reliable means of realising results in the short term, while still making a positive environmental impact that’ll help maintain momentum until there’s a wholesale overhaul of legacy tech.

We’re already doing this with our patented M2G solution and cloud-connected carbon management service. Found in the boiler rooms of hundreds of public and private sector buildings across the UK, we’re helping energy and sustainability managers enter and capitalise on the green economy.

Cooling

In order to meet climate targets, we must address carbon reduction at the point of consumption – which we naturally associate with global heating – this includes a focus on cooling technology. Air conditioning units are a key part of this and, again, inefficiencies are costing the environment, as well as building, vehicle and business owners, dearly.

It’s estimated that energy use from mobile units alone – such as those in passenger vehicles and commercial freight – could almost triple, hitting the equivalent of over 5.7 million barrels of oil per day by 2050. Annual combined emissions from energy consumption and refrigerant leakage could more than triple to 1,300 million tons of CO2 equivalent.

Developing and deploying new, greener alternatives in this space is therefore set to have a substantial impact. Energy-efficient, climate-friendly cooling could avoid as much as 460 billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions over the next four decades.

Getting there will involve a combination of researching and developing new, green technologies, as well as utilising data collection and analysis to optimise usage and identify inefficiencies. We’re seeing encouraging moves in this area, but much of the groundwork is embarked upon by smaller firms which lack the capital and connections to take ideas to the next stage. It’s those companies we are interested in partnering with.

Transportation

Trains, planes and automobiles have earned themselves possibly the worse reputation when it comes to climate change. Road transport emits 17% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and almost half of the oil extracted worldwide powers motorised road transport. Not only are vehicles a significant contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions, they’re also a very public signifier of a business’s green credentials (or lack of).

Fleets of polluting freight trucks, cumbersome and inefficient logistics networks: these things are increasingly coming under the microscope of consumers, the media, investors and shareholders. They cost money and they’re coming at great cost to businesses and the environment. 

Things are changing. Electric and hydrogen vehicles are becoming cheaper, more efficient, and more accessible for businesses to deploy. Yet the vehicles themselves are only one part of green transportation story. The road to deployment – the transition to alternative-power transport fleets – is where challenges remain for many organisations. 

Again, the cloud, the IoT and big data are critical to navigating this route. Going green will involve gaining a clear, data-rich view of transport assets – whether that’s a fleet of public buses or an international network of goods lorries. The kind of technology that facilitates this is what’s allowing businesses to improve efficiencies, assess the potential for new, alternative-power vehicles, and subsequently analyse and report CO2 reductions and cost savings. 

While change is afoot thanks to innovation in automotive engineering, we also understand the value and importance of the data and IoT solutions at the back-end, driving this change.
