UAE - Mubasher: Johnson Controls, a provider of smart, healthy, and sustainable buildings, has partnered with Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA) and the Rochester Institute of Technology Dubai (RIT Dubai) to develop the region's first smart and sustainable new campus.
Under the partnership, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)-listed company will deploy sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) at RIT Dubai's campus through its OpenBlue Enterprise Manager (OBEM) solution, according to a press release on Sunday.
In line with DSOA's sustainability and carbon emissions cut objective, the digital platform will enable RIT Dubai to monitor and analyse energy consumption and demand, offer sustainability solutions on campus, and cut operational costs.
The Vice President and Chief Sustainability, Government and Regulatory Affairs Officer at Johnson Controls, Katie McGinty, said: "Together, we can work to address the decarbonization of buildings, which represent about 40% of global emissions. It is a win-win. Cutting that energy waste and emissions cuts energy costs as well."
Meanwhile, the Vice President and General Manager of Building Solutions MEA at Johnson Controls, Rolando Furlong, added: "Our OpenBlue Healthy Buildings solutions will help create a state-of-the-art campus to improve learning environments and prepare students to be tomorrow's innovation leaders."
