Due to rising costs and heightened environmental awareness, energy is a key focus in today’s world, not least in the commercial property sector where building owners, operators and tenants are seeking increasingly intelligent and flexible energy management solutions. While saving energy is an obvious goal, clever use of energy and techniques such as ‘load balancing’ can deliver significant cost savings, without changing the amount of energy used.

As one of the world’s largest owners and operators of advanced warehousing, at Prologis we see intelligent building management as a way of delivering competitive advantage. Buildings that operate at maximum efficiency provide advantages to occupiers and landlords alike.

In this technical insight, Simon Cox, Head of Sustainability for Prologis UK examines the changing energy requirements of the warehouse of the future and how intelligently connected buildings will provide the data and analytics to drive efficiencies and encourage deeper engagement between landlord and tenant.
