Identify Wasteful Facilities and Circuits to Improve Energy Efficiency

According to ENERGY STAR® (a U.S. government-backed program), educational facilities in the United States spend over $14 billion on energy each year but close to 30% of that energy is used inefficiently. Use the EnergyPQA.com® cloud-based energy management system and EIG’s energy and power quality meters to submeter and quantify the energy used in all parts of the university. Studies show that submetering results in an 18-30% reduction in energy usage. When aware of their actual energy use, individual departments and facilities can take ownership of their energy consumption and participate in energy conservation efforts. The subsequent energy reduction results in both a return on investment and an improvement in the university’s carbon footprint.

The EnergyPQA.com® energy management system transforms traditional energy management by identifying the most energy wasteful facilities and circuits to maximize energy efficiency improvements.

  • Automatically grade campus facilities and circuits for energy efficiency using smart analytics.
  • Identify least efficient facilities and the potential savings from improving them.
  • Focus on facility circuits most in need of improvement.

Reduce Costs with AI-based Predictions

The EnergyPQA.com® energy management system’s AI-based energy predictions provide insights into building energy trends into the future. By looking at future predictions, a campus facility manager can then be proactive to make sure that energy reduction programs are successful. The system uses historical energy readings and future weather forecasts to provide usage and demand before they occur, at all metered points.

  • Accurately predict demand and energy usage into the future with advanced AI and machine learning.
  • Take action on peak demand predictions in advance of penalty.
  • View dashboards that detail energy usage and demand across facility areas and provide insightful predictive analysis.

The system emails notifications of new predicted peak demand up to three days in advance. Since demand charges can be as high as 50% of a facility’s actual energy bill, this information can yield significant savings. Use the EnergyPQA.com® energy management system’s predictive energy usage dashboards to judge the success of demand mitigation efforts.

Grade Facilities and Circuits to Improve Electrical Reliability

Power quality problems can result in damage to university equipment and cause major interruptions of the university’s work. Non-linear loads from computers, LED lighting, and other campus equipment can cause harmonics, inter-harmonics, and flicker, all of which have a detrimental effect on power quality. The EnergyPQA.com® energy management system gives deep insights into the power quality in all metered areas of the university.

  • Automatically grade facilities on best to worst power quality risk.
  • Identify specific circuits in worst facilities to provide simple meaningful actions to improve reliability and safety of the power system.
  • Gain deep insights into all aspects of the facility’s voltage reliability and power quality with extensive dashboards and customizable reporting.
  • Easily view power quality waveforms, voltage sags and swells, current faults, THD, power factor, and limit alarms.

Use Predictive Analytics to Benchmark Sustainability Initiatives

Many universities are at the forefront of energy sustainability. Measuring the success of sustainability initiatives as early in the process as possible saves time and resources. It also leads to greater success. Since the EnergyPQA.com® energy management system’s AI driven machine learning predicts energy usage and demand into the future, implement energy saving programs and then use the system’s prediction data and graphs to ascertain if sustainability plans are going to be successful. Make changes as needed and reassess the predicted outcomes. Additionally, use the EnergyPQA.com® energy management system to evaluate the university’s carbon footprint with predictions to the end of the month and year.
