DSA installed Vortex Energy Saver devices at four test centres during the month of January 2012 to investigate the impact that they have on gas consumption. The DSA business case for installing Vortex Energy Saver devices at the four sites expected to see reductions of between 8-29%.
The four sites chosen cover a range of profiles from small low consuming test centres to larger high consuming sites. The table below shows the test centres and the date that Vortex Energy Saver devices were installed:
Each of the selected sites has gas AMR (automatic meter reader) installed and a reliable provision of half hourly gas consumption data. This data will be used to ensure that the performance of the Vortex Energy Saver devices can be accurately assessed.
