P&G Uses Predictive Analytics for Energy Savings

Procter & Gamble (P&G) sets aggressive, data-driven efficiency, sustainability and profitability goals, but its participation in a new smart building technology program is driving proven performance gains with first-year average energy cost savings of 10 percent. After deploying Jones Lang LaSalle's (JLL) IntelliCommand smart building management technology in a test group of laboratories, offices and manufacturing facilities, P&G's initial investment in the technology was returned within the first three months of energy cost savings.

"By converting to a smart building system that uses predictive analytics to detect building performance abnormalities before they occur, we not only achieved energy savings in our corporate real estate portfolio, but we also improved building equipment reliability and the physical comfort of our employees," says Larry Bridge, Global Facilities and Real Estate Governance manager at P&G. "This pilot program confirmed that by using IntelliCommand, we can significantly improve the productivity of our buildings and employees."

IntelliCommand is a smart building management platform that offers 24-hour, seven days per week real-time remote facility monitoring and control across multiple locations, combined with the JLL integrated facilities management operations. Powered by Pacific Controls technology, the system includes continuous building commissioning, automatic work order generation, seamless smart grid integration and compatibility with all major brands of automated building system censors.
