BTC City Ljubljana, one of the largest business, shopping, entertainment, recreation and cultural centers in Europe, faced a significant challenge due to its high energy consumption. The center's energy needs were comparable to those of urban centers, due to its large number of facilities, wide area, and high consumption of electricity, water, and heating. The management recognized the economic necessity of energy management and sought to reduce energy consumption and costs, as well as subsequent CO2 emissions. They aimed to implement an energy management (EM) system for its multi-purpose facilities, in line with the ISO 50001 standard, which supports organizations to conserve resources and tackle climate change. The challenge was to control the consumption of individual energy products and monitor consumption by individual end-users, requiring tools for easy data collection, performance analysis, and production of automated reports.
BTC City Ljubljana is one of the largest business, shopping, entertainment, recreation and cultural centers in Europe. It is located just three kilometers from Ljubljana city center and 200m from the Ljubljana ring road, making it a must-visit destination for city residents and tourists. The center comprises a large number of facilities spread over a wide area, leading to high consumption of electricity, water, and heating. Its energy needs are comparable to those of urban centers. The management of BTC City is committed to reducing energy consumption and costs, as well as subsequent CO2 emissions, in line with their strong environmental strategy.

BTC City turned to Solvera Lynx, a leading provider of comprehensive energy management solutions, to devise a system to monitor and reduce energy consumption. Solvera Lynx set several objectives for implementing their Smart City EM solutions, including gaining remote control over energy consumption, implementing an alarm system, defining and analyzing key energy efficiency indicators in real time, introducing an energy accounting system, and providing a tool for employees to carry out relevant and efficient energy management activities. They used four types of communication equipment: GsmBox.WG, ComBox.M, ComBox.L and GsmBox.X4, which are wireless, long-range sensors utilizing LoRaWAN technology to send data to GemaLogic, an advanced energy management software platform. The sensors and communication equipment were deployed throughout the entire BTC City, digitizing utility meters that could then send data on electricity, heat, natural gas and water consumption from all facilities to the GemaLogic software.
The implementation of the energy management system by Solvera Lynx brought about significant operational results for BTC City. The digitization of energy data allowed for real-time monitoring and analysis, benchmarking, and forecasting. The system also included an alarm system that could detect deviations in consumption, such as those caused by a water leakage, alerting the managers for a quick response. The system could be improved over time, and the easy monitoring led to the implementation of effective measures to continuously increase BTC City’s efficient consumption of energy. The company has invested massively in its infrastructure to guarantee and maintain the highest level of efficiency for its operations, serving as an example of sustainability on a national level.
