Energy costs are rising. Initiatives to reduce a building’s overall carbon footprint are as well. An energy management program. There are many aspects involved in an energy management program. Cooling and heating a campus, commercial building, or other large facility can represent over 33% of total energy consumption. Thermal energy measurements are required to properly assess energy consumption, as well as control the distribution of chilled and hot water.
Precisely the point
Sub-metering gives you the precision that you need to pinpoint exactly where you are consuming the most energy – to either pass along the costs, or take steps to lower energy consumption. So, back to the original scenario: if you place flowmeters and temperature sensors at each floor, and use the same calculation, you can better determine those areas of energy consumption. Distribution can then be monitored throughout a building, providing the necessary data for:
4. development of a strategy to reduce consumption
Many people are faced with the challenge of what technology is best for their chilled water and heating distribution. In this scenario, magmeters and clamp-on flowmeters would be appropriate, each providing unique benefits. There are various flow technologies available to suit different applications.
