Building energy monitoring systems with built-in analytics – helping reduce the carbon footprint
Regulations on a global, regional and local scale have been established to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in multiple countries across the world, and in order to achieve these goals and prove regulatory compliance, companies are rapidly adopting the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) 50001 standard to improve energy performance and make climate part of their corporate strategy.
Energy management to reduce costs is not new, but it has become more important due to the imposed regulations. Most companies have formalized energy management programs and use automation and control technologies to help minimize energy costs. However, many companies need to take their efforts to the next level by monitoring and optimizing energy use in real time and leveraging Industrial Internet of Things generated data.
Data needs to be unlocked and leveraged for continuous improvement to lower the carbon footprint of the company. To some extent, data analytics has been utilized by large companies for their larger onsite energy issues. These time-consuming, centrally led data modeling projects are less suited for process-related optimization projects that require subject matter expertise.
HeatingSave Building Management System BMS software –advanced controls and analytics features
The HeatingSave high level software is a web based user friendly and intuitive software application, delivering unrivalled control and monitoring of the heating system. Using just a browser from one desktop or laptop PC, tablet or smart phone you can control your entire building or a whole network of buildings. Software features include:
Advanced planning of heating patterns and diary allowing 365 day programming with different patterns for each zone.
Graph visualisation of every temperature, air quality, occupancy and on/off event ever recorded. Use these to identify problems with boilers, pumps etc. and also to prove that HeatingSave is working for you.
Transaction and fault logging and reporting. Alerts include boilers failing to respond, or when they unexpectedly start to increase in heat (manually overridden by someone). Also sensors hitting maximum/minimum temperatures are displayed. Avoid expensive repair and maintenance costs by determining what the problem is first so you can either change the settings yourself or send the right person first time.
Running Costs – View the costs of boilers, equipment like pumps or immersions, air-cons etc. The costs are broken down by site or by each system individually. They are then displayed daily, monthly and quarterly. You can even see the carbon usage of your building or collection of buildings.
View your site as a schematic with temperatures and equipment status overlaid. Keep track of an entire site from one easy viewport.
Easily manage the settings and parameters for the entire Building Energy Management System from one place.
