Following a tidal wave of Net Zero Carbon commitments over the past 12 months, we decided it was time to enhance the functionality that these trail-blazing organisations would need to achieve their objectives...
The fight against climate change is a team sport. We need to come together and combine our expertise if we want to stand a chance of making a dent in global carbon emissions.When it comes to running energy efficient buildings, this couldn’t be more true. There are many stakeholders involved, who bring knowledge and expertise from a wide variety of perspectives.Energy data alone doesn’t cut it. It very often calls for the context that relies on more anecdotal or subjective information that has been built up over many years and sits in areas of the business other than the sustainability team. The problem is this information is stored in notepads, emails, ticketing systems or even worse, inside people's heads.That’s why we’ve built Data Point Annotations.Our brand new feature is embedded throughout the platform and allows all users to add information about particular anomalies, outliers, events, variances or anything else worth sharing.
Exception alerts are the bread and butter for most energy management platforms. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find a platform that doesn’t offer them as a feature in some capacity. But in all honesty, how many times have you seen them actually work?On the surface, they look pretty straight forward. Set some arbitrary thresholds, and wait to be notified when something goes wrong. One of two scenarios takes place:
As the 2019 GRESB submission cycle will be in the mind of those in the real estate space soon (if it isn’t already), this is a good time to talk about Fabriq's partnership with GRESB and how the Fabriq OS platform is being updated in collaboration with GRESB to make the sustainability reporting process more streamlined for stakeholders involved.
2018 is coming to an end and what a year it has been! But we wouldn’t be Fabriq, if we just left it at that and didn’t end the year on a high. To cap it all off, we are introducing some exciting improvements we recently made to the Fabriq OS platform, proven to help optimise building-performance management.
We are excited to announce some of the improvements which have been made to Fabriq OS over the past few months in order to optimise your ability to pro-actively monitor every dimension of a building site’s environmental performance.
Since we launched Fabriq (then EnergyDeck) way back when in 2012, we have been on a mission to democratise access not only to building performance data, but also 'projects' such as resource savings measures. We did this in order to enable our users to learn from each other, easily share best practices and ultimately run better / more efficient / comfortable / healthy etc. buildings.While the functionality of the initial Projects module has been improved over the years, its look & feel and workflow has not really kept pace with the other updates we've made to the platform in the meantime, especially during the recent relaunch.That has now changed. Please welcome the new & improved Projects module, which is already accessible to all Pro and Enterprise users of the Fabriq platform.
Hot on the heels of the major Fabriq update in February we've just launched a UI upgrade and a range of new features in Fabriq OS. These include improved site level views featuring benchmarks and alert summaries. In addition, we've now merged Carbon Footprinting into Trend Analysis, which not only makes tracking more efficient, but also enables the visualisation of different metrics in the same Analytics chart.
Virtual Meters are now a standard feature in the EnergyDeck platform. They can be created for all consumption meter types and behave much the same as a physical meter. The feature has been developed to be very user friendly, using our unique “link & multiply” methodology.
