ARLOID AI IS HELPING DAMAC PROPERTIES TO MAKE ENERGY SAVINGS IN DUBAI

ARLOID AI IS HELPING DAMAC PROPERTIES TO MAKE ENERGY SAVINGS IN DUBAI

Arloid’s artificial intelligence (AI) is helping DAMAC Properties to provide a significant reduction in utility costs in Dubai.  The savings are being achieved in just 30 days after a period of digital simulations in August 2022 using Deep Reinforcement Learning to learn and adjust the building’s existing Building Management System settings for precise adjustments to the cooling and ventilation systems. 

DAMAC Properties, a luxury property company based in Dubai offers residential, commercial and leisure properties for sale across the region. The company’s ethos is one of indulgence facilitating luxurious and comfortable living. Needless to say the need for comfortable living is imperative in the luxury sector. 

The ability to produce savings for DAMAC Properties in Dubai is simple:  first a digital twin of the actual building is produced using the same construction materials, location, weather patterns and personnel as the real building. The AI begins to analyse settings and produces a series of simulations based on live data from the real building. 

Adjustments are automatically made to the ventilating and cooling settings for optimum comfort and savings. Adjusting the settings is nothing new – previously an engineer would come along, assess and change any settings required. Now that the whole process can be done automatically and instantly means that this can be achieved exactly when it is needed without delay. 

Jawad AlTamini, Director of Facilities Management, at DAMAC explained: “There are few solutions available on the market that we’ve tried but the Arloid solution is much simpler and provides a straight-forward and much shorter process. There are many benefits for DAMAC - We are saving money and, what is important for me as a sustainability advocate, we are also reducing our carbon footprint. On top of that it’s a zero-investment solution. Our results so far are good and we are ready to roll out the Arloid solution to our portfolio of 40+ properties.’’

By implementing Arloid’s AI technology DAMAC Properties is increasing their green credentials with reduced energy use and carbon saving. This is likely to add value to the company’s quality and sustainability credentials.

Arloid’s AI technology can be used across any building with an existing Building Management System to control heating, ventilating, and air conditioning. It operates securely via a Virtual Private Network (VPN) and makes changes based on reinforcement behaviour and real-time data to provide faster optimisation and better HVAC performance. Different areas in a building can be controlled separately with the use of zones providing more control and improving user comfort. 

The year 2022 has seen a massive change in the supply of oil across the world. A lowering of supply has meant an increase in prices with countries endeavouring to reduce their demand significantly. 

DAMAC Properties is making changes now by implementing AI technology with a view to rolling it out further, across their real estate portfolio. Now has never been a better time for property managers across the globe to adopt artificial intelligence to reduce their energy demand and utility costs by up to 22%.
