# TL;DR - Verdigris is real-time energy intelligence for facilities managers. It allows them to react faster with device-level monitoring and real time alerts and invest and plan smarter.
# Details Why? We spend 90% of our time in buildings. They are the single largest consumer of electricity in the world yet they are inefficiently run and waste more than half. ($400B @ $.10kwh).
What?… · More Verdigris enables real-time detection, identification and analysis of the electrical equipment in buildings, providing unprecedented insights about behavior and usage.
So? Insights from the system can enable decisions to reduce electricity consumption (e.g., replace energy hogging equipment with more efficient options, optimize lighting and HVAC settings). It could also predict equipment maintenance and improve up-time (e.g., detect lights that need replacement, and detect an HVAC motors and pumps that may be malfunctioning).
