The Challenge

Due to a large number of facilities, wide area, and high consumption of electricity, water, and heating, BTC’s energy needs are comparable to those of urban centers.

In a bid to reduce energy consumption and costs as well as subsequent CO2 emissions, BTC sought to implement energy management (EM) system for its multi-purpose facilities, such as those used by Smart Cities, and in line with the ISO 50001 standard, aimed at supporting organizations to conserve resources and tackle climate change.  

BTC turned to Solvera Lynx, the region’s leading provider of comprehensive energy management solutions, to help devise its own system to monitor and reduce energy consumption.

The Customer

BTC City Ljubljana

About The Customer

BTC City Ljubljana is one of the largest business, shopping, entertainment, recreation, and cultural centers in Europe, located just three kilometers from Ljubljana city center and 200m from the Ljubljana ring road. It is considered a must-visit destination by city residents and tourists.

The Solution

Applying Smart City Energy Management Tools

  1. Solvera Lynx set several objectives for implementing their Smart City EM solutions:
  2. To gain remote control over energy consumption
  3. To implement an alarm system
  4. To define and analyze key energy efficiency indicators in real time
  5. To introduce an energy accounting system with a clear, transparent view of energy use
  6. To provide a tool for employees to carry out relevant and efficient energy management activities

To achieve these objectives for BTC, Solvera Lynx had four types of communication equipment in mind: GsmBox.WG, ComBox.M, ComBox.L and GsmBox.X4. These wireless, long-range sensors utilize LoRaWAN technology to send data to GemaLogic, an advanced energy management software platform.

Operational Impact
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Energy]

    In the past year BTC has invested massively in its infrastructure to guarantee and maintain the highest level of efficiency for its operations. The company has a strong environmental strategy and is dedicated to optimizing and reducing water leakages and energy consumption, serving an example of sustainability on a national level.

Quantitative Benefit
  • After one year of implementing Solvera Lynx’s EM system, BTC City has reduced its energy consumption by 5%.
