What does it take to create Buildings of the Future?

Build new or modernize with innovative solutions and services that prioritize sustainability, resiliency, efficiency, and people — build it for life, today.

Discover Buildings of the Future

The Challenge

  • In 2013, the Shedd Aquarium, which is home to more than 1,500 species of fish, marine mammals, birds, and other creatures from all over the world, committed to cutting energy consumption in half by 2020.
  • Achieving this ambitious goal meant conducting extensive research and analysis to identify opportunities within the various environments throughout the building.

The Solution

Efficiency and Sustainability with EcoStruxure

Apps, Analytics, and Services: EcoStruxure Building Analytics
Edge Control: EcoStruxure Building Operation
Connected Products: SVFT Drives

  • The Schneider Electric Building Management System (BMS) allows Shedd Aquarium to manage everything inside the building from lighting, via life support systems, to HVAC.
  • Through detailed mapping of the BMS, Building Analytics evaluates all equipment that’s under the BMS’s control, looks for faults in process, maintenance, and repair, and then prioritizes those based on an energy savings value.
  • Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) are used for water, HVAC, as well as for life support systems to control loads.
  • Last but not least, a turnkey solar solution with 265KW of solar panels installed on the roof of the Oceanarium generates clean, renewable energy, and reduces energy costs.

The Results

  • Energy cost avoidance and roadmap.
  • More than 480,000 square feet of building.
  • Fine-tuning systems and equipment to save energy.
  • Fault detection and diagnostics.
  • Meaningful analytics and prioritized actions associated with measurable ROI.
