How energy efficient is your building?
How effective are your energy efficiency measures?
The new BRE Building Energy Monitor can cost-effectively answer these questions.
T3521 Energy Monitor Hub
BRE’s many years of experience in measuring, recording and analysing energy use in commercial, domestic and other buildings, has been drawn on to develop a simple Energy Hub. The Hub enables the different stakeholders involved in delivering and applying energy efficiency to fully understand their impact and influence.
The BRE Energy Hub allows stakeholders to answer critical questions as follows:
Client – are the solutions provided fit for purpose and able to deliver promised outcomes?
Developer / Contractor – is there a gap between theoretical and actual performance when delivering new or refurbished works?
Supplier – does the product perform as specified?
Financier – are savings that are integral to your financial models being delivered?
Users – how does your behaviour affect your building’s performance?
How it works
The BRE 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 BRE’s central 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 and managers 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.
The BRE Energy Monitor Hub uses a high-performance, low-power 1GHz Samsung ARM Cortex-A8 processor to provide the computing power for the Linux based software system. Its compact design has a variety of peripherals and interfaces which include Ethernet, USB Host & OTG, Serial ports, class 10 micro 8Gb SD card and manual control/reset switches. External communications to and from the online dashboard software is via the Internet using a standard router or wirelessly using an optional external 3G module, SIM card and aerial.
