Building Energy Monitoring Systems – Using the iOT to Improve Energy Efficiency

Leave a Comment

Knowing exactly how much energy is used within a building is the first step towards improving that building’s overall energy efficiency. And the best method to achieve significant insights into energy use is the deployment of a comprehensive building energy monitoring system equipped with cutting-edge Internet-connected sensors.

The IoT (Internet of Things) might seem to be just a popular buzzword for many, but it does make it possible for richer, higher resolution data gathered by sophisticated sensors to be translated into actionable information then shared by multiple applications for addressing different use cases. This ultimately reduces costs and enhances capabilities.

Deploying an array of smart sensors across buildings and using a centralized building energy monitoring system to manage and interpret the data will lead to a significant cut in operating costs, productivity improvements and a better level of comfort for occupants. In fact, detailed information about occupants’ presence, location, count, and activity can now be used to significantly optimize facility management. Hot desking, meeting rooms booking, optimized space planning, and energy savings are some of the immediate use cases.

HeatingSave Building Energy Monitoring Systems – the perfect solutions to enhance consumer awareness on consumption patterns

The HeatingSave Building Energy Monitor is a wireless management system that collects information from sensors placed in a building. It is unobtrusive and causes minimal disruption during installation. The system collects internal and external temperature data, along with information on how the heating system works and details of energy use. It also monitors the way a building is used in terms of its occupancy and the occupants’ activities and lifestyles.

Using a password protected standard WiFi connection, sensors can quickly be set up to review and quantitatively analyse the data with user-friendly software graphics, via a laptop, PC, mobile phone or tablet-based device.

A cable connection to the building router also enables data to be uploaded to HeatingSave’s cloud storage servers, where it can be analysed by sophisticated software. This provides a clear understanding of the real impact of energy efficiency measures, for example through pre-installation analysis and post-installation monitoring.

Building owners can access their energy usage details online to help them manage energy use more efficiently. This information is presented using a dashboard system that provides consolidated and drill down views of the energy use data.

Lowering ambient temperatures helps university save money during winter break

Leave a Comment

Lowering ambient temperatures within university buildings while students are away on holiday can help reduce the overall heating bills, and a BEMS (Building Energy Management System) is the perfect tool for this task.

This approach has been recently put into practice by Syracuse University, who decided to bring down building temperatures to save energy and money.

Syracuse University’s Department of Energy Systems and Sustainability Management reduced the temperature in campus buildings from 68 degrees to 60 degrees when students vacated their residence halls by Dec. 17. Temperatures are not lowered further as pipes could freeze, said Nathan Prior, director of ESSM.

“It is a little deceptive with what people want to see with savings because we are not shutting campus down,” Prior said. “We are still maintaining it at a minimum temperature to prevent freeze-ups in the buildings.”

The school’s energy management system is run by a control system that modulates temperatures automatically. Prior said the system is switched to an “unoccupied mode” during Winter Break from Dec. 17 through Jan. 13. When students returned to campus, temperatures were adjusted to the occupied mode, between 68 and 70 degrees.

The machines automatically fluctuate based on the outside and indoor air temperatures, something that affects the amount of energy that the school conserves, Prior said.

Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) can help UK manufacturers improve energy efficiency, cut bills

Leave a Comment

Some of the UK’s largest manufacturing organizations have called for more government action on energy efficiency, a recent media news report has been able to suggest.

Manufacturers’ organisation EEF has recently released a report arguing that significant opportunities for cost-effective energy efficiency measures remain within the manufacturing industry, but are not being exploited through current policy mechanisms.

Using the conclusions of energy efficiency audit reports conducted under the Energy Savings Obligation Scheme (ESOS), the report suggests manufacturers could save a further 14 per cent from their annual electricity consumption through better management of electricity use and the installation of established energy saving technologies such as LED lightbulbs and high efficiency motors.

Elsewhere, the report reveals many UK manufacturers doubt the government has a robust energy strategy in the long term, with just one third of companies surveyed expressing belief the government has a long-term strategy for ensuring a secure energy supply. Less than four per cent of companies believe the UK’s energy infrastructure has improved over the last two years, while a quarter felt it had worsened.

SMEs are not doing enough to improve energy efficiency, research finds

Leave a Comment

Almost 90% of SMEs (small and medium enterprises) have done very little to improve their overall energy efficiency, a recent survey has been able to suggest.

The research from ScottishPower suggests that only 10% of small and medium firms have actually managed to reduce their overall energy expenditure within the past 12 months. Furthermore, 60% of SME owners don’t think energy efficiency in the workplace is a key priority and half of them have no measures in place to improve in the area.

Richard Rugg, Managing Director of Programmes at the Carbon Trust, said: “Energy saving is an easy win. Cutting money off the bottom line is a great way to increase profitability. But although there is often a considerable opportunity to reduce overheads, in most companies this often gets overlooked.

Potential of energy saving measures is wasted, energy auditors claim

Leave a Comment

The huge energy saving potential uncovered by energy audits (often carried out as a part of the ESOS compliance scheme) is wasted by firms who fail to take action on the recommendations, according to auditors at Inprova Energy.

The Carbon Trust’s analysis of a sample of recent ESOS energy savings opportunities assessments showed that an average cost reduction of 20% was achievable through cost-effective energy saving measures. On an average energy spend of £1.8m, this translates into potential savings of £360,000 per site.

Unfortunately, the level of implementation of energy saving recommendations from energy audits is disappointingly small, despite the obvious attractive monetary and environmental rewards.

The data suggests that space heating can be a major source of waste, where simple energy saving measures can reduce costs by as much as 30%. Furthermore, the poor control of building energy management can also affect efficiency. In fact, modern Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) are one of the most effective solutions for optimising efficiency in a building, often resulting in savings of 10% to 20%.
