Bank of America, one of the world’s largest financial institutions, serves approximately 57 million consumers and businesses in the United States. The company’s commitment to environmental sustainability is founded upon its belief that with great prominence comes an equal degree of responsibility, both to the communities in which they operate and to the world at large.
To implement their energy conservation strategy, Bank of America turned to mCloud (formerly Field Diagnostics). In addition to deploying mCloud’s HVAC Service Assistant™ product to optimize energy savings for the HVAC units in their portfolio, they also installed mCloud’s Synergy product to identify cost savings opportunities across 3,600 bank facilities. To date, Synergy’s advanced fault detection and diagnostics algorithms, mathematical models and knowledge-based rules have been used to deliver a 12% energy reduction across the portfolio. As an organization which consumes over a quarter billion dollars of electricity annually, this level of savings is a great first step in Bank of America’s pledge to fulfill its role as a responsible citizen and leader in the global energy community.
