Features & Benifits

  • Granularity of data: Energy consumption can be analysed to as fine a grain of detail as required.
  • Ease of installation: Retrofit solution which overlays existing electrical installation.
  • Scaleable and extendable: Install initial solution consisting of as little as one incoming plus one metering point.  Extend seamlessly by installing additional metering points - "plug and play" enabled by wireless mesh ZigBee Pro.
  • Energy Manager Online:  Cloud-based portal.  Obtain instant access to energy data at any time from any device with an internet connection. 
  • Dashboard:  Accurate, real-time, and customisable display of energy usage, costs, and CO2.  Breakdown by categories such as lighting, HVAC, IT.
  • Analytics and reporting:  Comprehensive tools to breakdown and analyse energy usage provide actionable information that identifies where savings can be made.
  • Data Logger.
  • Primary Meter. HH, Day+1, AMR. N.B. May be real-time.
  • Building Management System (BMS) or Building Energy Management System (BEMS).

Feature Benefit Energy Solution Data Logger Primary Meter BMS

(Fiscal) Accuracy and frequency of data. Energy Solution smart meters have the ability to measure the following to a high degree of accuracy: apparent energy, power,
active energy, reactive energy, voltage, current, phase angle and power factor. Data is typically measured and reported every 10 seconds; stored minute-by-
minute for first 48 hours and aggregated into 15 minute intervals thereafter.

Provide value-added services such as preventative maintenance based on observing real-time measurements drifting out of recommended range. Y

Granularity of data. Energy Solution solutions provide the ability to break down overall energy use to analyse energy consumption to as fine a grain of detail as required.

 

Obtain unparalleled visibility of energy use from distribution board to circuit to socket (individual device) level. Leverage data gathered to prioritise targeted interventions to save energy. Gather data to support proposed interventions.

Y Y x x

Ease of installation. Retrofit solution which overlays existing electrical installation. Potential to install simplest systems without a qualified electrician; potential for qualified electrician to install systems without disrupting power supply.

 

Install comprehensive energy management solutions with minimal disruption to end user– no need to “rip &
replace”.

Y Y x x

Scalability and extensibility. Install initial solution consisting of as little as incoming plus 1 metering point. Extend seamlessly by installing additional metering points – “plug and play” enabled by wireless mesh feature of ZigBee Pro standard. No limitations on total number of metering points.

 

Target data collection to areas of specific interest, starting with incoming meter. Extend monitoring system once value demonstrated to end user.

Energy Manager Online cloud-based portal. Obtain instant access to energy data at any time, from any device with an Internet connection.

 

Leverage portal as a sales tool by demonstrating energy use of existing installations – or perhaps even the site of the sales call!

Y x x x

Dashboard. Accurate, real-time and customisable displays of energy usage, along with costs and CO2 emissions. Includes breakdowns by main categories
such as lighting, HVAC, IT. Option for trade partners to apply own or end user branding.

 

Ability to leverage clear and timely overview of energy
consumption to effect behaviour change.

Analytics and reporting. Comprehensive tools to break down and analyse energy usage.

 

Translate energy data into actionable information. In
particular, identify areas where savings can be made.

Y x x x

Analytics. Break down data into groups to compare energy use at individual, department or organisational level. Monitor the efficiency of a single piece of equipment (such as printer or photocopier) or assess the cost of running lighting or air conditioning across a site. Analyse real-time or historical data to spot trends and opportunities for energy saving.

 

Produce comprehensive reports on energy use, either
on an ad-hoc basis, or as part of a regular service
provided to end users.

Reporting. Create PDF reports via online portal.  Export data in CSV format for off-line analysis using spreadsheet, database or other tools. Use published APIs to export data in real-time to a 3rd party or custom-developed application.

 

Produce comprehensive reports on energy use, either
on an ad-hoc basis, or as part of a regular service
provided to end users.

Real-time alerts. Configure email or SMS alerts to warn if energy use of particular devices increases or decreases unexpectedly.

 

Provide value-added services such as the option to
carry out preventative measures.

Cost effectiveness. Relatively low cost per metering point.

 

Demonstrate positive ROI and additional value from monitoring energy use beyond incoming alone.

Active energy management. Control supply of power to selected equipment automatically and remotely.

Deliver additional value by minimising energy use
when a room or building is not occupied.
