2019 Green Building Trends: Data & Submetering

January 14th, 2019 Posted by Blog Posts 0 thoughts on “2019 Green Building Trends: Data & Submetering”

Cities across the US are demanding more efficient, sustainable buildings, and codifying these demands into law like the city of Denver.

Green buildings provide a triple win – delivering measurable benefits for building owners, occupants and the public from reduced operating costs, improved indoor air quality and reduced energy consumption.

Data seems to be the key to successful green building projects.  In a recent report by Dodge Analytics, data and the Internet of Things boost building performance and reduce operating costs.

Smart metering and submetering equipment like the Milur Smart Meter Series, is now a requirement for many multi-tenant and commercial building projects. Contact us to learn more about intelligent submetering solutions.

The Smart City Landscape: Scooters and e-Bikes

January 8th, 2019 Posted by Blog Posts 0 thoughts on “The Smart City Landscape: Scooters and e-Bikes”

As cities face increased traffic congestion and pollution, many have adopted sharable scooters and e-bikes as more accessible modes of transportation.  Using these modes to address “First Mile/Last Mile” issues appears to be logical…for now anyway.   There are even business use cases for e-bikes in particular, addressing last-mile issues in the supply chain.

Located in Denver, the team here at Milandr has witnessed its share of scooters on the streets of the Mile High city.  Affordable, quick, and easy-to-use, scooters and e-bike can not only alleviate traffic, but also free up parking spaces.  Time will tell, but these dockless modes of transportation are efficient smart city and IoT solutions for the modern urban center.

Speaking of electric transportation, check out Milandr’s new electric bike.  Very cool tech.
