Insight in your energy consumption is the first step in your energy savings and performance process. But that’s only one side of the story, since your energy consumption probably depends on many factors, such as:
By monitoring relevant factors inside your company, you are able to keep track of your performance and to compare your performance to others (benchmarking), but you are also able to measure the performance of investments in e.g. energy efficiency and energy savings projects.
To keep track of the relevant factors inside your company a monitoring and targeting system can be set up. However, setting up such a system brings in many questions like: What are our relevant factors? And how to measure them? How often do we need to measure them? How do we process the measured data into valuable insights and performance reports?
In our work as energy consultants we have helped many companies bringing valuable insights into their energy performance and setting up performance tracking systems. We gladly offer to bring insight in the energy performance of your company by setting up a “Monitoring and targeting” system.
Our core activities with regard to monitoring and targeting are:
Don’t let numbers be a maze, but let them tell an energetic tale by keeping track of your activities!
In the graph above the natural gas consumption of a production plant in relation to the production intensity is shown. The blue dots represent the measurement values and the red dots represents the predicted values based on multi-variable regression. Based on the prediction it is possible to estimate the energy use in relation to the amount of products produced.
Is a Monitoring and targeting system of use for me? And if so, what are the benefits?
In our experience, the awareness created by a Monitoring and targeting system, will in itself, result in an energy saving of 5-10%. In order to obtain a substantiated investment proposition we help you answer the following questions:· Which appliances consume the most amount of energy?
The result is a substantiated investment proposition.
How do I set up my Monitoring and targeting system?
To help you implement the Monitoring and targeting system BlueTerra can assist you in de following activities:
This will result in a proper and customized Monitoring and targeting system. In our experience this will result in reducing energy costs due to the created awareness.
