Singapore Government to launch energy monitoring solutions for all residents
The Government of Singapore has revealed plans to roll out a smart energy monitoring and metering initiative for all its residents, a news report has been able to suggest.
Singapore’s Energy Market Authority, national water agency Public Utilities Board and Singapore Power, on Monday, jointly issued a Call for Proposals (CFP) to develop technical solutions for a smart metering trial.
The CPF invites prospective firms to develop and trial smart solutions for remotely reading all three meters reliably and cost-effectively. This move will provide more timely usage data to consumers to help them better manage their utility consumption.
Singapore’s Minister for Trade and Industry S Iswaran announced the initiative at opening ceremony of the ninth Singapore International Energy Week. It will enable the households to track the usage of water, electricity and gas through a mobile application to enhance consumers’ awareness of their consumption patterns. The trial of the smart technologies will begin in early 2018.
HeatingSave 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.
