Solar power is a reliable and predictable renewable energy investment. If your goal is to consume less electricity from the grid or manage power demand spikes, working with an automated facility monitoring and control system guarantees returns.
Lighting typically makes up about 20%of a building’s electrical consumption and sets the baseline power demand. Replacing old fixtures with more efficient LED’s reduces consumption and demand baseline. This is an essential energy management upgrade that every building should have.
Wind is a great alternative source to offset a portion of electrical consumption. Trickle charge batteries provide power to smaller systems during grid power outages.
Minimizing the sunlight that enters a building through windows reduces the heat gain of interior objects and floors. This, in turn, reduces the amount of heat load the HVAC equipment must remove from the building to maintain temperature set points. Window shading can be automatically controlled to adjust based on the internal heat gain of objects in the building.
Daylight harvesting is a simple and effective way to light a space using the interior lighting, combined with natural light through exterior windows or sun tunnels in the roof. Photocells measure the intensity of light entering the building and dim or raise the interior lights to meet the desired lumens of light.
Energy can be stored in the form or ice or heated fluids in insulated tanks for slow release over time. This help to ease the burden on facility systems during peak heating or cooling hours.
When they are not precisely controlled, old or poorly maintained HVAC systems are often the cause of excessive demand spikes and electrical consumption. Demand spikes can be mitigated while still keeping the comfort level of the desired indoor temperatures with an autonomous controls system paired with on-site renewable energy.
Batteries are used to save up electrical energy produced by renewable sources to be used later when those renewable sources aren’t producing. Alternatively, they can be used to save energy during off-peak hours and rapidly discharged at critical times to mitigate costly demand spikes.
The correct fuel-to-oxygen ratio, proper sizing, and maintenance of boilers and associated equipment are essential to efficient operation.
Refrigeration is critical for preservation of stored goods. By connecting refrigeration systems to an intelligent controls system, you can closely and autonomously monitor and prevent malfunctions from going unnoticed. Thereby reducing costs associated with damaged goods.
Creating intelligent HVAC zones allows for precise control over heating and cooling to improve comfort levels and maximize the effectiveness of the HVAC systems.
