Hotels are often huge energy consumers. Obtaining an accurate energy profile for everyday functions such as cooling, heating, laundry services and lighting is impossible unless you can monitor circuits or loads individually. GridAnalytics can aggregate data from meters in separate locations within and between buildings.
GridAnalytics has been used at premium hotels to track energy use and identify abnormal usage from loads such as chillers, air handling units, pumps and lighting. This allows the building manager to target energy waste and save money with no adverse affect on hotel patrons.
Community facilities, Council depots and aquatic centres are all large consumers of electricity. Many Councils are installing solar panels without the capacity to monitor energy flows and operational performance to maximize their return on investment.
GridAnalytics is the ideal energy management tool for councils to aggregate energy use and solar power production data across their building assets and promote achievements to ratepayers. Users can then focus on single buildings, loads or circuits to target maintenance issues, maximize energy productivity and minimize energy waste.
Manufacturing equipment is expensive to run and even more expensive to replace. Operations managers are keen to understand the energy consumption of their equipment to look at ways to measure and reduce it where possible.
GridAnalytics is used to visualize the power flows to specialised 3 phase equipment in isolation to the rest of the factory. Understanding the energy load profile can allow strategic decisions or start up sequences, production timing and asset replacement choice to minimize demand charges, which can account for 40% of the energy bill.
New technologies – ranging from new generation techniques to the collection and exchange of data offered by IoT (Internet of Things) devices to managing and harnessing the power of ‘big data’ – are transforming the energy services industry.
GridAnalytics is a platform that can work in tandem with current utility data and multiple systems to provide a clear picture of energy use across a range of locations. This information facilitates customer engagement services including measurement and verification, demand management, bill validation or customised software visualisations.
