Mohawk Group Announces Partnership with Scanalytics
Calhoun, GA, December 18, 2023-Mohawk Group, part of the largest flooring manufacturer in the world, and Scanalytics, a Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based smart flooring company, are announcing a strategic partnership to reduce emissions from the built world.
Buildings are the biggest contributors of wasted energy each year, responsible for nearly 40% of all carbon emissions annually. Much of that wasted energy comes from heating and cooling partially occupied or unoccupied spaces because the building cannot access precise usage. The combination of flooring and sensors bridges this gap. With the direct support of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) ARPA-E, Scanalytics has developed a patented sensor material that can be seamlessly integrated directly into, on top of, or underneath Mohawk flooring. Bolstering the Mohawk Group commitment to sustainable materials, the flooring system delivers high-resolution data down to each footstep, without impeding occupant privacy or comfort. That critical information is used to control energy-hungry operations more intelligently like heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC). Powered by real-time visibility and an AI platform, data can be used to deploy a variety of software applications. The value delivered to building owners, operators, and occupants includes enhanced security, true customer insights, and detailed facilities management.
Existing installations of the Scanalytics sensing technology system are proven to reduce energy waste by up to 35% per year while maintaining 90% occupant comfort satisfaction. With plans to roll out hundreds of millions of square feet of this product during the next several years, Mohawk Group is paving the path to significantly reduce emissions coming from the built environment, with an impact comparable to diverting tons of waste from landfills every single year.
The partnership launches in 2024.
