Energy Monitoring

In some cases, companies can slash their energy bills by up to 40%
by implementing simple measures such as optimising their heating system.

Businesses have multiple reasons to closely monitor their energy consumption – from the need to reduce operational costs, to the government-imposed dictum to drive down environmental pollution resulting from carbon fuel consumption (especially for companies based in the UK or EU). The idea here is to eliminate avoidable waste while ensuring that all energy needs are met, thus increasing the overall energy efficiency and staying within the planned expenditure range. In some cases, companies can slash their energy bills by up to 40% by implementing simple measures such as optimisation of the heating system.

EnviroTech has the knowledge and experience to assist with various aspects of the energy monitoring process and advise customers on how to achieve the desired long-term effects.

 

Some of the primary tasks we can help with include: 

Data collection and interpretation

Before companies can identify areas where they can improve, it is necessary to collect as much data about energy expenditure as practically possible. This needs to be done systematically and impartially, although it is possible to simplify the process by introducing automation wherever possible. We understand the importance of helping companies formulate sound monitoring and targeting (M&T) schemes to consistently update them on incoming data.

  

Target setting based on realistic factors

One of the most difficult tasks is projecting how much energy is necessary for the effective completion of core activities. There are several factors to consider, including the typical state of local weather, historical data about energy spending, the level of technological development, etc. Due to inherent differences between businesses, the best way to estimate the necessary amount of energy is to list the most important activities and then calculate realistic energy needs for each one. For companies with variable levels of production or those located in colder climates, it may be more logical to define minimum sustainable levels instead of fixed targets, allowing for higher expenditure during peak periods or cold-weather months.

  

Automating the energy monitoring processes

In larger systems, manual monitoring of all activities and meticulous measurement of expenditure for individual appliances can be very time-consuming. Fortunately, technology offers a smart solution for this challenge – deployment of automatic meters in critical locations can make the entire process far less effort-intensive while enabling accurate readings to be made every 30 minutes.

 

Automation also decreases the chances of a human error and introduces an objective framework for interpreting the results, which can conveniently be visualised through software means.

Virtual Power Plants

Virtual power plants are not physically located in the same place, but are consisted of assets that can be scattered over a wide geographic area. A virtual power plant typically includes at least one renewable energy source (wind, solar…), energy storage facilities, as well as several smart buildings connected into a mini-grid.

Biomass

In the current climate, many companies are trying to decrease their carbon footprint to become more eco-friendly and qualify for government incentives. Current programs include the Renewable Heat Initiative, adopting this approach could be the easiest solution for immediate improvement.

Hydropower

Hydroelectric power is a very important source of energy worldwide, and is perhaps one of the best utilised sustainable resources, despite the fact that other technologies like solar panels or geothermal pumps currently attract more attention.

Biomass advantages, disadvantages and UK incentives
Power can be produced by burning biomass instead of fossil fuels, thus greatly decreasing the amount of C02 released into the atmosphere. This technology is one of the easiest to adopt and while it’s not 100% clean, it’s much less damaging than the traditional energy sources and can be described as carbon neutral when proper safeguards are applied.
