3 steps for improvement energy consumption, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and decreasing costs

Energy consumption of buildings represents over 10% of worldwide consumption. The major areas of energy consumption in buildings are heating, ventilation, and air conditioning depended on gas, water, or electricity. And usually these areas are the costliest. To be energy and cost-effective you should understand what is behind regular bills. 

Also, almost every technical operation in utility system is automated, but it doesn’t mean to be fully reliable and stable. Automation still may cause problems – it may break down, operate incorrectly and switch to manual mode, where human factor arises.  

Inefficient utility systems operations impact not only on utility bills but on overall building’s energy efficiency. Here are three main steps to address and sustain energy efficiency.  

1. Collect the real-time big data of utility systems operations. Data collected from different systems makes it possible to analyze real time processes and establish complex cause-and-effect relationships in equipment operation.  

Start with understating the processes going on in your utility systems. Benchmarking guides you to where you are in terms of energy efficiency. How much energy does your building consume? What is it used for? Does it cross the limits set? Are processes efficient enough? Energy efficiency does not start with “just turn off lights or heating/cooling when it is not needed”, it needs deep and precise understanding in what is going on in your utility systems. 

HiPerWare – Big Data IIoT platform – answers all these questions and more. Deep, non-intrusive data collection and analytics show performance of any utility system that can consume energy, the processes in it and any anomalous behavior it has. You can save up to 25% on energy by setting and controlling utility systems to operate as they are supposed to. 

2. Analyse the processes in your utility systems and technical operations. Discover anomalies and interconnected relationships between diverse processes. 

Every type of equipment has a typical pattern of operations, that are ensured by internal automatics and required operating conditions. Any deviations shows that there is an issue in a system.  Leveraging a knowledge of what typical and specific indicators should be for a typical building, for example an approximate consumption of kWh per square meter, we can compare it the best practice, benchmarks in the industry. This understanding will help you to immediately determine what the potential for energy efficiency is, as the object is initially analysed.     

3. Define areas for improving energy efficiency and Sustain it.  

Improved processes, continuous control on corrections, and analysis on building operation lead to ongoing and sustainable energy efficiency opportunities.  

It is also important to note, that these 3 steps will help to deliver on the EU’s climate goals stated in Effort Sharing Regulation, adopted by The European Parliament in March 2023. 

HiPerWare enables all stages of efficiency assessment, from performance analysis to continuous efficiency with an individual with your own virtual Energy Manager. Reduce energy costs by up to 25%, get full transparency of technical operations via daily deep analytics and professional industrial expertise at an affordable price starting from 1,5 euro per sq meter annually. 

HiPerWare can be easily integrated with 3rd party facility management systems, BI tools and other 3rd party systems. It helps achieve and sustain high-performance buildings, making them transparent, predictable and efficient.
