The key to reducing energy consumption and energy costs is measurement. Dynamic, online measurement, using smart meters connected over ‘The Internet of Things’.
This technology is obviously useful for large and medium companies who have large energy bills, possibly employing an energy manager. It also provides energy cost-saving opportunities for small and medium companies, improving profitability and competitiveness.
Dataview can measure ‘everything’
Our dataview platform can measure all forms of energy source plus metrics like water usage and environment impact:
- Natural gas and LPG
- Renewables – solar energy, wind power
- Water consumption
Dataview can measure ‘everywhere’
Dataview energy monitoring can be applied on multiple sites, with multiple energy sources. Sub-metering can enable you to measure different activities on a site, such as manufacturing, plant, office, sales operations and so on.
Fiscal metering is a system for measuring liquid and gas flow – often for taxation purposes. This is also known as ‘custody transfer’ and a high level of accuracy is required.
Dataview will collate all the data
All the data from multiple smart meters and sub-meters on multiple sites will be gathered into one set of online reports. The reports will be customised to suit your business and concentrate where the greatest energy savings and cost reductions can be made. You can add in contributing factors like climate, temperature, production values and other internal or external influences.
Environmental impact can be included in the measurement, including CO2 output for instance; and also water deregulation means that measuring you water usage becomes important.
Dynamic visual presentation
Data is presented in the form that suits you. Appealing visuals make your data easy to understand, and display your performance against limits and objectives. You will find the dataview platform is intuitive and easy to use. Usage data can be collated by every half hour, day, week, month, year with comparisons against budget.
Dataview can provide numerous reports, such as, league tables, usage targets, site by site comparisons, time of day operational demands and numerous other reports. This provides an effective energy audit tool for the management of commercial energy resources.
Used in conjunction with our Openview platform it gives the energy manager complete comfort that they have control on all elements of their energy assets, costs and environmental impact.
