Monitoring Energy Consumption
How do you Accurately Monitor Occupier & Equipment Consumption & Reduce Energy?
In Multi-Tenanted Buildings one of the most contentious issues has always been about being fair when it comes to the billing of tenants energy consumption.
Billing is usually based on the size of the tenanted space in their lease agreement.
However it becomes unfair when there are similar tenants occupying the same size space but with many more people working longer hours who are being billed the same amount as the smaller tenants.
Individual Occupiers Energy Consumption
Now available are individual tenant IoT remote metering/monitoring solutions that are able to monitor the actual heating, cooling, electricity and water consumption per individual tenant and provide that consumption data so they can check and validate any bills they receive.
Ultrasonic Heat Meters connected to our IoT Modbus module can be retrofitted to the individual floors heating and/or cooling system with minimum disruption.
Electricity consumption can be achieved with local devices connected to mains or local electric circuits.
Occupancy affects consumption as does heating/cooling fresh air. The Energy will go up/down as the occupants go up/down. Tenants want to reduce energy consumption based on occupancy and some existing systems allow for local ventilation, Fan Coils to be controlled based on the number of people at any given time.
Our Multi-Sensing EnviroPure Monitoring devices can be fitted in minutes and cover an area of 325 sq/m (3,500 sq/ft) and are fitted at high level throughout the occupied area.
Although they can monitor up to 10 different IAQ metrics, they key here is CO2 monitoring which gives a good indication of the number of people in any given space. All the active devices and can be shown on a floorplan.
The Savings can be phenomenal and your Customers will have a more reliable system with less failures, less downtimes, reduced cost and happier occupants
Instant Energy Consumption vs Occupancy
Please see our new live Instant Energy Consumption based on Occupancy calculator
The objective is to show you how much an individual employee costs based on varying days of Building occupation and Energy Consumption. You would be amazed at how much it varies even though the HVACR system is still running no matter what.
Yellow boxes on both tabs need to be filled in by each customer to work out the rest.
22.5kWh is the average estimate energy usage, per square foot, per annum by industry experts (See info here)
Just as an example, for every hour of plant run time we can save, on a 100,000 sq/Ft property with a 14p per kWh energy rate will save £35.96 per hour(on average)
Remote Meter Readings of Mains Gas, Electric and Water Meters
Are you paying someone to manually read your meters every month at your properties?
Many Commercial Buildings, Industrial Units, Retail and Hospitality venues still have old fashioned Analogue Meters.
Many Property Management Companies have to provide bill validation to the Buildings occupants, and the only way to do that (without Automatic Meter Reading) is by manually visiting each site every month and then manually taking the readings from each of the main (and any sub-meters) and then checking the readings vs the auto billing amount.
Following a recent conversation with a contract manager responsible for 6 No C. London Commercial Buildings, they have been paying for an individual to carry out meter readings at each building with each having 6-7 meters at each property each month, plus travelling expenses just to read the gas, electric and water meters.
Their view is very simple. It's wasted time and expense where this person could be carrying out more income earning rather than wasted time and expense
Wouldn't you like to save those costs with remote monitoring for each site? We have the technology to automatically read any type and any age of meters. You can access the data on any web enabled device, as well as being able to produce reports and store historical data
Now do the maths for your sites. What does it cost you to get meter readings each month?
Let us quote you to remotely read the meters at your sites and remove the expense of manual readings
