Envision Digital International Pte Ltd (“Envision Digital”), a global decarbonisation and Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) technology leader, and Tridium Inc., a leading provider of open platforms, application software frameworks, automation infrastructure technology and device-to-enterprise integration solutions, entered into a strategic agreement to develop joint innovations. The partnership will support countries around the world that are pursuing decarbonised growth and smart parks / smart infrastructure deployment.

Smart parks are characterised as a cluster of mixed-use smart buildings that are custom-built to meet the needs of different organisations and enterprises within a shared location. Occupants can efficiently control and ‘automate’ the spaces they lease – and the operational or manufacturing systems and processes within it – using an AIoT platform and digital applications. As countries look to accelerate decarbonisation and meet their net-zero targets, investments in smart parks – which are aimed at eliminating the need to burn fossil fuels for industrial production and regular building operations – could eliminate more than 27 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Envision Digital will combine its expertise in smart energy management (solar, wind and storage) and AIoT optimisation and controls with Tridium’s expertise in digital services for smart park and smart building management to support the development of smart parks in 88 smart cities worldwide by 2025, of which the US is expected to account for 25 and the Asia-Pacific region is expected to account for 32.

“Organisations across the world already rely on Envision Digital’s AIoT operating system – which connects and analyses data from more than 100 million devices – to ensure that their underlying assets are controlled to operate optimally,” said Michael Ding, Global Executive Director, Envision Digital. “We are excited to combine, with Tridium, open automation and smart energy management to deliver smart parks and smart buildings that run on renewable energy, helping countries’ transition to net-zero.

Headquartered in Singapore, Envision Digital owns EnOS™ – the world-class AIoT operating system that currently manages more than 200 gigawatts of energy assets globally. Driven by machine learning, Envision Digital’s proprietary monitoring, advanced analytics, forecasting, and optimising applications provide insights to help organisations better manage their energy assets’ performance. This includes proactively detecting and diagnosing emerging system underperformance or component health issues and providing automated recommendations for pre-emptive or corrective action.

“Today’s burning question is no longer about whether smart parks and smart buildings can deliver value. Instead, it is about how we can effectively implement the right digital architecture to harness their full potential,” said Simon Liu, General Manager, Asia-Pacific, Tridium. “Our partnership with Envision Digital is based on our shared belief that economic growth and sustainability must be a collective consideration. As such, we aim to do our part by implementing an innovation roadmap that will help countries make smart parks the base unit for new breakthroughs in renewable resource allocation and environmental management.”
