When the Smart Office reduces the carbon footprint

Comparative study of electronic paper signage compared to other solutions.



E-Paper 7.4'' Label vs. TABLET LCD

A 7.4'' e-ink label carries 4 CR2450 batteries (PILE CR2450 LITHIUM 3V 620mAh) for a lifespan of approximately 4 to 5 years Then you have to remember your electricity lessons: P (Watt) hour = U (Volt) x I (Ampere) hour

So, the consumption side label, so we have 4 batteries of 3 V x 660 mAh 7.92 Wh for a period of 4 years

A tablet consumes about 12kWh/year:

That is, a 4-year consumption of: 12,000 Wh x 4 years or 48,000 Wh.  It is 6,060 times less to be precise.

12.2'' e-Paper Label vs. Energy Star Certified Dynamic Display screen

A 12.2'' label carries 6 CR2450 batteries (PILE CR2450 LITHIUM 3V 620mAh) for a lifespan of about 4 to 5 years
So the consumption of a 12.2' label is 6 batteries of 3 V x 660 mAh 11.8 Wh for a period of 4 years

The following articles indicate the consumption of Energy Star labelled screens (low consumption)

Manufacturer data show consumption between 80Wh and 165Wh depending on the size. Let's take 80Wh.
The annual consumption is therefore 80Wh x 24h x 265j or 700 800Wh/year or 2,803,0000 Wh for 4 years.

This new and low-consumption type of screen is: 433 kWh/year so 1,732,000 Wh over 4 years.
So electronic paper consumes 237,000 times less than a next-generation Energy Star-labelled screen.


12.2'' e-paper label vs. printed A4 sheet of paper:

A 12.2'' label carries 6 CR2450 batteries (PILE CR2450 LITHIUM 3V 620mAh) for a lifespan of about 4 to 5 years
So the consumption of a 12.2' label is 6 batteries of 3 V x 660 mAh 11.8 Wh for a period of 4 years

The following article indicates the consumption of new printers (low consumption)
1. In conventional management is in the order of 747 [kWh/year]
2. In low-energy management is in the order of 433 [kWh/year].
The printer even in low energy: 433 kWh / year so 1,732,000 Wh over 4 years

So electronic paper consumes 146,000 times less than a printer.

In other words... 146,000 A4 sheets can be printed to regain the energy consumed by 1 e-ink sheet.

Regarding the carbon footprint, I do not have data on the shelves, but on the paper side, we can evaluate the tons of carbons used to ship the wood needed for pulp or to move the (quite heavy) paper reams to the office where it will finally be printed, but there ... it would add to the bill, especially since most of the papers end up incinerated and release the carbon so slowly stored by the forests.

Shift the lines !

Experience flexible and smart workspaces ...

At Z#BRE, we facilitate the hybrid way of working and allow companies to increase their productivity and realize the savings linked to the reduction of unused space.

How can connected objects speed up disaster recovery?

By demonstrating that remote working is possible, the containment imposed in recent days is challenging those in charge of the working environment:

Organising spaces, resources and services for users who are constantly on the move.

Not so long ago, the number of people on site was known, and the consequent investments were foreseeable. Today, everything must become flexible and adapted in real time.

Placed in the working environment among employees, the new generation of intelligent and autonomous objects makes life easier for employees, improves productivity and enables rapid savings by optimising space.

  • They enable real-time monitoring of usage in the field.
  • They disseminate information easily and quickly throughout the company.
  • They put employees back at the centre by giving them autonomy and the ability to interact.

For more than 5 years, the solutions developed by Z#BRE have offered companies the flexibility they need to adjust their spaces and occupant services according to the usage they find.

Companies often divide their surfaces into 3 parts:

  • The ones they actually occupy.
  • The ones they offer to the companies in their ecosystem (partners, suppliers, customers, etc.).
  • Those that they share with them and that make it possible to absorb the peak loads of each one.

And what about you? How do your companies envisage occupying their premises after the resumption of activity?

Z#BRE in partnership with EZWorkspace revolutionises signage and corporate communication

Imagine that your company's sheets of paper are automatically updated according to the information you wish to disseminate and that you can personalise and contextualise it in real time! That office assignments change with the pace of bookings, that the direction of traffic can be adapted to events, that PPE regulatory displays are always up to date. Imagine that internal communication spreads its messages throughout the company in just one click and that visitor badges indicate the location of the appointment... that the uses become as infinite as the data sources.

Z#BRE editor of the first IoT & IA platform for services allows users to easily interface any data source for intelligent and automatic updating of "labels" in the field. These new solutions also allow the display of QR Code and interaction via a smartphone.

EZWorkspace is the leader in electronic paper-based digital signage for work environments. Its wireless and 5-year standalone electronic labels come in all sizes. They deploy in the environment as simply as a sheet of paper.

  • Efficient, information is updated instantly, anywhere, anytime.
  • Easy to use, choose a template, assign it to the labels and spread the message.
  • Save time, no need to print or change the content of each label.
  • More economical, labels can be installed without wiring and reused over and over again.
  • Greener, switch to zero paper and eliminate the consumption of traditional screens.
  • Totally flexible, the labels can be redeployed as needed.

The information-proof building

In these times when information has become suspicious and confused, I remember writing a paragraph in a book several years ago on this theme which seems to me more topical than ever:

"Defining the term information means first of all specifying its nature. What is its target audience? What is the medium? Who is the audience for it? An individual, a group of individuals...?

There is a common denominator to all these definitions: knowledge.

Information serves above all to bring to light or increase the knowledge of an individual or a group. This knowledge is indispensable to life. It informs our decisions and influences our behaviour. »

Everyone remains free to analyse the current situation!

Everyone will, of course, agree that reliable information is relevant, but more often than not we do not pay attention to the context in which it is transmitted, nor to the context in which we receive it.

Our company is called Z#BRE, and its name is not a coincidence. No two zebras are the same and they are, by nature, very mobile. Their differences are reflected not only in their stripes, but also in their different behaviours.

Like the zebras, the employees and users of the premises are all different and have different personal expectations about their experiences in company buildings.

A favourable working environment is essential for the well-being of employees and paradoxically, when we enter a company or a building for professional use our experience becomes identical.

It seems imperative that instead of the personal touch that becomes impossible to materialise in workspaces, we feel not only welcomed but also that spaces, offices, lockers regain an identity that recreates personalisation.

That we feel informed and, above all, that the information is intended for us.

Without being too intrusive, technology must now allow this!
