City to start monitoring energy consumption and CO2 emissions in buildings
Authorities in one of the world’s fastest growing cities will start monitoring energy consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions as part of an ambitious scheme to reduce electricity and water usage and cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 30 percent by 2030, a recent news report in the local media has revealed.
A monitoring trial of buildings in Jakarta is set to start in October. As part of this project, energy consumption in three city-owned buildings will be surveyed, with the Jakarta administration set to install energy monitoring devices in the buildings.
The buildings are Blok G in the City Hall compound, the Cipta Karya public works office, the spatial planning and land agencies and D building at the Central Jakarta municipality office, all in Central Jakarta.
City deputy for spatial planning and environment Oswar Muadzin Mungkasa said: “The most important thing is, is that the building occupants must change their behavior to save energy.”
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.
