The UK government will allow the public to track Whitehall employees’ energy use after installing real time energy meters across 18 Whitehall headquarters.
Energy management for smart community
Under the project title “Smartes Yspertal” an energy management concept for municipal administration buildings was created in the 1,900 inhabitant community in Lower Austria. Savings potential and inefficiencies in public buildings are thus to be shown. Microtronics has equipped the buildings with data loggers of the type myDatalogNANOamr. The myDatalogNANOamr enables wireless meter reading from energy and water meters. The data are provided on the EN ISO 50001:2011 certified energy management...
Advantages of Using Flow Meters to Reduce Pressure Drop
Plant operators rely on plant air pressures to maintain properly working equipment and systems. One of the most common problems affecting processing plants that utilize compressed air systems is the ability to maintain reliable air pressure throughout the distribution system. Insufficient air pressures may be due to undersized distribution piping, but it’s more commonly found that the cause is flow restrictions in the distribution system such as filters, check valves, and fittings, as well as flow meters...
Are you wasting the cashback potential of energy audits?
If the government offered your business £20 cashback on every £100 you spent on energy, you would probably head for the front of the queue. Yet that`s exactly the sort of money saving opportunity an energy audit can deliver. The Carbon Trust`s analysis of a sample of recent ESOS energy savings opportunities assessments showed that an average cost reduction of 20% was achievable through cost-effective energy saving measures. On an average energy spend of £1.8m, this translates into potential...
Electronic Water Meter For Leakage Repair - Case Study
Every year, EMS (Energy Management System) produces and markets smart electronic water meters (domestic/ bulk), wireless transmission data logger (GSM/ GPRS), and advanced AMR (Automatic Metering Reading) systems. Unlike traditional mechanical water meter, the magnet-free electronic smart water meter with class C (CNS 14866) metrological performance can maintain 12 years battery lifespan. With a tamper-proof design, it also has leakage detection function, flow directions, monthly water consumption log, and MNF...
Why we need to get enthusiastic about smart energy meters
The national rollout of smart energy meter systems will give power back to consumers while helping to create a sustainable energy future - but only if the technology is adopted enthusiastically. Paul Rafis explains why we need to promote a culture of proactivity to make the smart meter project successful. The fight for energy sustainability is being fought along various national and international fronts, but the dusty cupboard underneath your stairs has not featured in this energy debate, until now. The...
