Johnson Controls’ [NYSE: JCI] Announces Partnership with Derwent London

Johnson Controls International plc [NYSE: JCI] disclosed that its OpenBlue digital platform technologies will be launched across Derwent London’s portfolio. This launch will lead the digital revolution of Derwent London’s estate. It allows new opportunities for operational efficiency, occupant experiences, and sustainability in one dynamic solution.

OpenBlue Enterprise Manager is a thorough suite of applications from Johnson Controls. It is intended to examine and enhance energy efficiency, tenant satisfaction, asset performance, maintenance operations, space performance, and eventually the comfort of all occupants. Enterprise Manager provides the next generation of intelligent building capabilities.

Furthermore, after a successful pilot at its White-Collar Factory building, Derwent London is adopting a suite of Johnson Controls OpenBlue technologies. It includes OpenBlue Enterprise Manager and OpenBlue Central Utility Plant optimization across 22 of its buildings in London. This signifies nearly 55% of its total estate by area and includes Derwent London’s net-zero carbon development The Featherstone Building.

In addition, OpenBlue Central Utility Plant is in charge of the effective and efficient management of the biggest consumer of a building’s energy which is the Central Plant. The software continuously adapts and improves thousands of variables every 15 minutes leveraging AI and Machine Learning. Hence, it greatly lowers baseline energy load, while retaining the occupants comfortable.

Moreover, Johnson Controls OpenBlue’s digital platform and services for optimizing buildings are able to lead to significant developments in energy efficiency and subsequent carbon emissions. Derwent London believed that Johnson Controls’ technologies will allow its property managers and occupiers to track and report on the steps it is taking to run buildings more sustainably. Derwent London is looking ahead to this relationship-improving further as it moves to become a net-zero carbon business by 2030.
