|Cost/benefit and market-potential analysis report|
The market potential of advanced data analytics for energy efficiency is analyzed based on a rough estimation of the additional investment and the potential effects of the improvements. The deployment itself requires additional investment costs (e.g. for additional equipment or modeling of the building and its systems) and only seen through the savings the return of investment period based on the assumptions is somewhere between 5 and 10 years. However, the indirect effect of the occupants' comfort and company's image improvement, which are difficult to measure, is another major benefit and should be a driving factor for deployment.
