Energy Management and Monitoring
You can’t control what you don’t measure.
EI can assist you by creating a sub-metering plan for current and future energy management action initiatives. EI will help you to control the rising energy costs and increase property profitability by implementing the appropriate Energy Monitoring Solution.
EI will source the right system that makes it easy to measure the effectiveness of energy management systems, calculate potential cost savings and have the flexibility to bill tenants for the energy they use. The system we implement will allow you to understand where and how energy is used in your building. We do this by installing the most reliable multi-point metering systems that the industry can provide. Our systems is based on wireless network that allows you to access data from anywhere through internet cloud service.With our energy monitoring system in place you will be able to:
-See immediate saving from 20 to 40% by managing your energy use
-Allocate energy cost easily and fairly to tenants
-View and analyze real time energy use on a display as well as on your smart phones and tablets.
-Take advantage of load shifting and peak shaving to minimize the impact of time-of-use billing
-Leverage opportunities around carbon credit and net metering
-Identify the biggest opportunities for retrofits and verify the savings in real time
-Validate warranty through real data.
Energy Assessment & Proposal
EI building energy planning cycle begins by evaluating current energy use to create a baseline, usually including energy from electricity, heating, cooling and hot water, generators, solar and renewables. Through consultation with the owner, operator and users, and a review of current utility bills, we help to establish energy goals, targets and a roadmap of actions with quantifiable outcomes. The various components of this process are identified below.
A rapid survey or high level assessment of energy use baseline, inventory of resources and identification of opportunities with rough order of estimation of both capital expenses and possible returns. The scoping audit allows our customers to identify and prioritize potential projects.
This would include extracting data from the building management system and utility bills to analyse energy usage patterns for different building components. This may include installing sub meters to extract data and monitor real-time energy consumption to fine tune the analysis and for developing appropriate solutions.
TECHNO-ECONOMIC ASSESSMENT & PROPOSAL
Based on the above assessment EI will perform a detailed techno economic analysis of the options that results in an actionable energy plan. This will include an energy efficiency and renewable energy technology scan for the most feasible options. It also includes financial and operational cost-estimates for the technologies under consideration.
EI may also conduct a broader feasibility study to assess the technical, socio-economic and environmental feasibility of the technologies under consideration. A feasibility study estimates economic indicators including capital and operating costs, savings compared to the status quo, payback period, internal rate of return, and net present value. It also includes a technical evaluation to determine if the technologies can match the energy demand, outline the potential interconnection requirements, and consider other applicable requirements. Environmental and social considerations are assessed, such as greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions, clean indoor air, productivity and comfort for building occupants.
Based on the above assessments and feasibility study EI will develop and present a proposal for the best solution, based on the goals and objectives identified by the client.
