Air conditioning regulation to reduce discomfort peaks.

Turin Shopping center structured on long corridors overlooked by shops, restaurants and services. Many of these areas overlook the outside with walls and glass facades. Indoor temperatures are heavily influenced by sunlight and therefore change dramatically during the day.

Project

Given the intended use of the building, people’s flow is irregular, with significant peaks in the hours of restaurant service. Air conditioning regulation often required manual interventions and could not therefore meet the needs of the building that needed a dynamic implementation following historical patterns of turnout.. Enerbrain first of all monitored constantly the critical areas (north and south side) with the greatest sun exposure at different times of the day. Thanks to the processing of the algorithms of the data collected by the sensors and the weather forecasts, Enerbrain adjusted the building with dynamic logics with respect to customer needs. This type of regulation avoided further energy waste and ensured greater comfort for the customers of the shopping centre.
