City in Finland digitises public buildings to become carbon-neutral

< 1 Minute Read

A city in Finland, located 30 miles north of Helsinki, is digitising all of its public buildings, with the aim of becoming completely carbon-neutral, with the help of an AI specialist.

Known as Nuuka, the AI specialist has been employed by Hyvinkään Lämpövoima, the district heating company owned by the city of Hyvinkää, to digitise its public buildings.

By 2030, Hyvinkää aims to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 80%.

As such, Hyvinkään Lämpövoima’s control room service will use Nuuka’s cloud-based platform to collect and analyse the city’s entire building automation system data, in order to diagnose the building processes.

In addition, Nuuka’s AI Air software will also be used to optimise the buildings’ HVAC systems continuously. As a result, it will eliminate the need to monitor systems manually, freeing up the city’s maintenance team to attend to other important matters.

Olli Parkkonen, Nuuka’s Head of Business Development, expressed immense pride in the partnership with Hyvinkään Lämpövoima and the city of Hyvinkää. Through its innovative technology, the company is working on making buildings healthier for people and businesses, as well as the environment.
