Commercial Energy Management & Monitoring Solution

The U.S Department of Energy estimates that 20% of the energy consumed in the United States is used by commercial buildings, but that energy inefficiency means that probably 20% of that energy is wasted. These days no one can afford to be paying for energy that is not being used. Increasing efficiency is not only good for a building’s bottom line, it also has a positive impact on the environment, by helping to reduce a building’s carbon footprint.

Increase Awareness of Energy Consumption Profiles through Submetering

Submeters are a critical element for measuring energy consumption. The installation of submeters has been shown to foster energy savings simply through the awareness of energy consumption they provide, which promotes the conscientious use of energy and yields savings of up to 15%. Gain the support of your tenants in reducing energy usage with the information you receive through submetering. And EIG’s EnergyReporterPQA™ application allows you to fairly bill tenants directly for their energy use, and to create detailed usage reports for mall areas and timeframes. Also, the Shark® 100B submeter has native BACnet/IP which lets it fit seamlessly into any existing BACnet application you are using to manage your building.

Identify Areas Where Energy Savings Can Be Attained

Submeters provide key energy data that allows building owners, property owners, facility engineers and financial managers to identify areas within the building that are energy inefficient and that may need improvement. Areas often noted to be inefficient are: common areas, such as lobbies and hallways; HVAC systems; tenants with high electric consumption; unoccupied floors; retail tenants and more. This inefficiency is very costly; in fact, poor performing buildings can use up to seven times the energy of the highest energy efficient buildings for the same exact use.

EIG’s submeters let you identify energy used by specific loads or individual tenants. And EIG’s EnergyPQA.com™ Energy Management Cloud solution provides energy analytics and predictions, reducing costs and improving power system reliability. It surpasses traditional Energy Management systems by adding Energy prediction engines and deep insights into power quality.

Implement Energy Reduction Programs and Monitor Their Progress

For several years, the U.S. Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) has issued energy savings guidelines that include the implementation of submetering with energy
tracking and reporting, and the formalization of energy goals and processes. Every commercial building owner, every tenant and tenants with multiple floors or significant square footage, must be engaged to take advantage of energy management and energy efficiency initiatives.

Installing EIG’s meters, submeters, and metering and billing software is one of the most cost effective ways to implement an energy management program. Installing submeters is also a smart way to fight competition from other building owners. Commercial building owners who do not take advantage of the simple use of submetering run the risk of failing to keep the best of tenants. Armed with the knowledge you get from EIG’s meters and submeters, energy and facility managers can help tenants make decisions that will realize energy savings for everyone.
