What is Smart Energy Management?

Smart energy management uses real-time data analytics and the latest technologies to help businesses reduce their energy consumption; saving them money in the process. This is achieved using smart energy management systems, which monitor, control, measure, and optimise energy consumption in a building, factory, or any facility.

The data from the smart energy management system is then analysed, to identify areas of opportunity where consumption could be reduced and money savings made. Smart energy management is becoming increasingly vital for businesses, especially in the current climate of rising energy prices and carbon emission targets.

Your smart energy management experts

We don’t just install smart energy management systems – we have an expert team of building engineers, controls specialists, data scientists and energy and carbon managers to provide a full end to end service.

Our combined engineering, strategy and technology expertise is what sets us apart – ETS is where the digital meets physical, to save you money, ensure compliance, reach sustainability goals and maximise building performance.

Amend building services scheduling

We recommend amending building services plant and equipment schedules to align more closely with your amended operating hours. This should be done through the BMS (Building Management System) wherever possible, ensuring that all equipment is put into ‘auto’ and not left on ‘hand’ settings. This will ensure that the equipment is appropriately controlled through the BMS and aligned with updated scheduling.

Reduce any heating and air conditioning

You should reduce set points for space heating and introduce setbacks for out of hours occupancy, though you shouldn’t turn off boilers and heating equipment off fully. There will need to remain some level of cycling for building services equipment to allow for frost protection and building fabric protection. You’ll also need to take into account any partial occupancy throughout the shutdown period.

Much of the same applies to air conditioning and ventilation. Ventilation equipment should be reduced, but not turned off completely. Consideration should also be given to the use of reduced and localised ventilation through fan coil units if possible, to reduce any reliance on centralised whole-building space conditioning.

Turn off lighting and small power items where possible

Check any and all lighting that isn’t controlled by the BMS and turn off where possible, but be sure to maintain any lighting levels required to ensure safety in certain environments – for example, external lighting in urban areas as appropriate. Lighting should be reduced as much as possible, but maintaining safety while doing so is key.

Building managers should also ensure that once the building is vacated, all computers, screens and audio-visual equipment are fully turned off and not left in sleep mode. Similarly, all small power items should be turned off where appropriate and not left in hibernate.

Maintain critical water systems

It’s also crucial to take the right approach to your water systems when shutting down your building. Critical systems should be maintained, and operation kept in-line with the Health & Safety Executives Approved Code of Practice L8 to mitigate the risk of legionella upon building reactivation.

Continue to track energy consumption

It’s important to align your updated temporary strategy with any energy management software or external bureau that is being used by the building. Any alerting parameters for excessive consumption should be adjusted to align with the new operational profile.

This will enable you to have a good handle on any potential areas with excessive consumption during a shutdown or lower occupancy period. Additionally, it’s also a great way to gain insight into your baseline consumption within the property. This will then enable you to make better energy management decisions when the building comes back into full operation.

Final thoughts

In short, there’s a lot of things that can be done to minimise energy usage while maintaining building integrity and quality during a shutdown – the above represent some of the key considerations.

For additional guidance, we recommend the Building Engineering Services Association’s SFG30: Mothballing and Reactivation, which provides good holistic guidance on this topic.

Smart energy management as a service can be broken down into five steps:
Policy and planning
Data and diagnostics
Optimisation and implementation
Monitoring, measurement and analytics
Audit and iteration

The process does not have to be linear and customers can start the journey at any stage, from initial planning through to energy audits.

Smart – think about what you’d want the outcome to be, what resources you need to apply and over what timeframe. ETS will gather all your relevant data sets and deploy experienced engineers to audit your facility and major energy users. Clever controls specialists will interrogate your control systems and experienced energy managers will make sense of all this information so that we can advise, manage, optimise and drive down your real time energy consumption.

Why you need smart energy management as a service

There’s never been a more urgent time to get smart about your energy management. With energy prices rising at an alarming rate and the pressing issue of climate change, businesses need to act now if they want to reach sustainability goals and get maximum value for money.

Many businesses already have smart energy management systems in place, but different providers are often brought in to analyse the data or implement the necessary changes. With smart energy management as a service from ETS, we provide all the services you need in tandem so you don’t waste any time.

The benefits of smart energy management

Reduced energy costs

Spend less on energy and reduce running costs thanks to increased operational efficiency – plus protect your business from energy price volatility.

Reduced carbon footprint

The UK has set a target to decarbonise all sectors of the economy and reach Net Zero by 2050. It’s crucial that all businesses play their part and SEMaaS is the first step to help achieve those sustainability goals.

Improved performance

Our services include performance audits, smart net zero strategies, BMS control technologies and much more, all proven to maximise your building’s performance.

Optimised for less energy waste

Improved operational efficiency means less energy waste (and money savings too).

Increased return on investment

ETS have a proven track record of significant ROI for our clients. One Irish non-food retail client had a £33k contract and £130k energy savings achieved – that’s a 400% return on investment.

Ensure compliance

Qualifying organisations must carry out an ESOS assessment every four years. SEMaaS reduces your energy consumption to ensure your business stays compliant and energy efficient.
