Vodafone Campus Reduces Energy Consumption with Recogizer
- Recogizer is part of many ESG strategies to reduce carbon emissions
- Vodafone headquarter with 85,000 sqm cuts HVAC energy consumption by 23 percent powered by Recogizer's AI
Net-Zero by 2045: Currently, pressure on property owners and real estate managers increases to achieve sustainability goals and operate ESG-compliant. Companies are faced with questions of practical implementation: What are the initiatives companies use to significantly cut their carbon footprint? Experience is proving: Digital climate technologies have an enormous impact to accelerate decarbonisation.
The future giga-building is connected and green! Building management in particular offers enormous green potential for smart technologies. By using artificial intelligence in our headquarter, we are able to reduce our energy consumption for indoor climate by almost a quarter.

Vodafone has set goals high: the company wants to be climate-neutral as early as 2025. To get there, Vodafone relies on AI technologies for the control of indoor climate, which enable a high level of comfort for employees and at the same time protect the environment. One component of the comprehensive sustainability strategy for the Vodafone Campus in Düsseldorf is Recogizer's predictive control. 23 percent of the energy consumption for heating, ventilation and air conditioning was reduced in Düsseldorf by the self-learning technology.

Results at a Glance:
5,5 Gigawatt hours
Stable feel-good climate
So far, the 85,000 sqm office campus saved 5.5 gigawatt hours of energy - equivalent to the annual consumption of more than 300 households. At the same time, the intelligent algorithm ensures that the indoor temperature is constantly at a comfortable 23°C. Even though the workspaces are not very crowded during the pandemic, an optimal indoor climate must be ensured at all times.
How can we operate our buildings even more sustainably? Where can we save energy? These questions have always been on our minds. Especially in large buildings, automated solutions such as energyControl are extremely important. This is the only way to achieve noticeable and large-scale savings effects.
