As specialists in carbon reduction, and with a long history of energy management, Envantage has grown to become one of the most innovative and inspiring Carbon Management Consultancies.
Here at Envantage we believe that addressing your Carbon obligations does not need to cost you money. We work with energy suppliers, green fund managers, renewable installers and third party service suppliers to ensure that you benefit financially from turning to a greener alternative.
We have a professional team of consultants to assist you with reducing Carbon, saving money, and helping your business to prosper.
Customer satisfaction is essential to the success of our business; therefore we are always pro-active in contacting our customers to advise them on market price, trading, legislation or efficiency changes as they occur.
We simply advise and consult. We enable our engineers and consultants to engage in continued development to ensure that they are ahead of the game in the fast moving carbon market. We believe that knowledge is critical and so we support our employees by providing regular training in new market developments and advancing technologies. This is also part of our ISO9001 requirement.
As we understand fully what Energy Managers need, consulting directly with customers, but also with our partners we have been able to produce an energy monitoring system that satisfies the industries’ requirements for relating energy management data in a way that is useful and both meaningful to users.
Our software is compatible with the latest technologies such as Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac, Android and IOS to enable users to access their data on devices and web browsers of their choice. ENMAT is continually evolving.
Our cloud solutions mean our customers can access ENMAT from anywhere in the world and is the simple, cheaper way to manage Energy related data.
Why should I Submeter?
Increasing energy costs are frequently the largest variable expense for commercial, industrial, institutional and multi-family facilities. The installation of submeters provides a variety of benefits to the building owner as well as the tenants:
– Record actual energy usage (no estimation)
– Analytical tool for allocating costs to tenants, departments
– Analytical tool for energy management
– Compliance with green building initiatives
– Measurement & verification of energy conservation programs
Monitoring information on energy use, in order to establish a basis for energy management and explain deviations from an established pattern. Its primary goal is to maintain said pattern, by providing all the necessary data on energy consumption, as well as certain driving factors, as identified during preliminary investigation (production, weather, etc.)
The final principle is the one which enables ongoing control of energy use, achievement of targets and verification of savings: reports must be issued to the appropriate managers. This in turn allows decision-making and actions to be taken in order to achieve the targets, as well as confirmation or denial that the targets have been reached.
Before the M&T measures themselves are implemented, a few preparatory steps are necessary. First of all, key energy consumers on the site must be identified. Generally, most of the energy consumption is concentrated in a small number of processes, like heating, or certain machinery. This normally requires a certain survey of the building and the equipment to estimate their energy consumption level.
The first step is to compile the data from the different meters. The frequency at which the data is compiled varies according to the desired reporting interval, but can go once every 30 seconds to once every 15 minutes. Some measurements can be taken directly from the meters, others must be calculated. These different measurements are often called streams or channels.
Driving factors such as production or degree days also constitute streams and must be collected at intervals to match.
Define the base-line
The data compiled must then be plotted on a graph in order to define the general consumption base-line.
Once the base line has been established, and causes for variations in energy consumption have been identified, it is time to set targets for the future. Now with all this information in hand, the targets are more realistic, as they are based on the building’s actual consumption.
Targeting consists in two main parts: the measure to which the consumption can be reduced, and the timeframe during which the compression will be achieved.
Some companies, as they improve their energy consumption, might even decide to bring their average performance down to their historical best. This is considered a much more challenging target.
One of the specifics of M&T is that it is an on-going process, requiring constant feedback in order to consistently improve performance.
Once the targets are set and the desired measures are implemented, repeating the procedure from the start ensures that the managers are aware of the success or failure of the measures, and can then decide on further action.
