Over the past few years, consumers, businesses, and governments are focusing their attention on integrating IoT (Internet of Things) in energy management systems. These advanced technologies give way to smart grids, reduce costs, improve security and enhance efficiency.
Currently, there are Energy Efficiency Grants available that are all geared toward sustainability and energy efficiency. Discover what grants are available here.
IoT can be integrated within an Energy Management system to achieve various benefits, such as:
Reducing energy costs
The economic benefit is a major reason why companies and governments are exploring energy management systems. Various efficient ways can help the industry to better control spending and eliminate waste. These include monitoring of power in real-time and data-driven predictions. All this is made possible through the use of IoT.
Utilities, power distributors, and producers are doing more than implementing a standard energy management system. With the use of IoT, they are modernising their operational systems with smarter solutions. By making use of IoT-based monitoring systems, producers can; automate on-site asset management, lower their costs, improve maintenance operations, and rely on power consumption data to automate dynamic pricing calculations.
Reducing carbon emissions
On a daily basis, the need to reduce carbon footprint is ever-increasing, reflected by recent laws and regulations. Reducing energy consumption goes hand-in-hand with this need. IoT-based energy management systems help companies to reduce their carbon footprint by; maximising resource-efficiency, automatically measuring environmental impact to help pinpoint issues and guiding future-proof energy strategies which aid in the transition to net-zero emissions.
A client of ours got in touch to provide them with an energy management system. Their aims were to:
• Access and control their building systems
• Monitor and optimise their energy consumption
• Control and adjust air temperature
• Monitor all heat pumps
AIS installed a tailor-made Building Management System (BMS solution which is driven by IoT. The client now benefits from centralised control of the building's air-conditioning, ventilation, heating, lighting, and other utility systems. By comparing real-time measurements to pre-set markers, the BMS can automatically detect and quickly react to changes.
Being fit-for-purpose, the BMS is easy to use and customise. The client can now monitor all building systems and adjust to their needs. With the end-user’s objectives in mind, the automated energy managment system works in the background, eliminating the need for daily input by personnel. The IoT-driven BMS also collects and stores all energy-related data. The secure data can be viewed at any time by authorised personnel, giving the client comfort and peace of mind.
This is just one example of how IoT can enhance a company’s operational efficiency. By using integrated devices and streamlined communications, AIS offers solutions that make day-to-day operations manageable, efficient and cost-effective.
These systems we offer are geared toward saving on costs and helping the environment.
