PowerNow- helping our customers make savings through efficiency measures
Energy efficiency is one of the biggest opportunities for businesses to mitigate against rising costs and lower emissions. Simple changes such as installing more efficient light bulbs or switching off HVAC when there’s no one in the building can add up to significant savings.
PowerNow is a live energy monitoring solution that gives you visibility of your energy consumption at an asset level through easy to install hardware and an online dashboard. It can help you improve awareness of your energy consumption at a new level, allowing you to drive energy savings from behaviour change and energy efficiency measures. The platform itemises your energy usage and spend, providing you with complete transparency on where and when energy is being used- and wasted.
EDF Energy recently worked on a project to help a large office building with an energy spend of £100k per annum reduce energy waste and spend. Through the installation of PowerNow they were able to get a deeper insight into the site behaviour of their single office building with 4 floors of office space, constructed in the 1990’s.
Using the online dashboard, they were able to monitor over 280 different asset points across the site in real time, primarily measuring machines, lighting and HVAC.
Following the installation of the PowerNow solution, we were able to help the site identify savings on lighting which led to a lighting control upgrade at the site. Further savings were also identified through changing staff behaviours, rolling out a behaviour change programme known as ‘Good Housekeeping’. The overall estimated savings across behaviour change and energy saving measures came to over £12,000, equating to more than 12% reduction in energy spend in a year. More opportunities are being analysed for further energy spend reduction.
