Smart Metering for Business and Industrial facilities

Ecopare has been installing energy meters across its client base since 2010. Our energy meters record many types of data such as electricity, gas, water. We also collect environmental data on temperature, humidity, pressure, air flow and vibration. Other types of data also include foot-fall, light intensity and production volume flow.

We utilise a range of metering technologies that suite the environment that we deploy in. This can include both fixed-wire and wireless sensors in a real-time or delayed collection modes

What type of metering suites you?

Energy metering is the only accurate way of determining your actual energy consumption and patterns of use. The level of detail an organisation wishes to go down to is dependant on the sector and size of the organisation.

We understand this issue and have delivered practical systems that meet the needs of our client's requirements.

We take into consideration:

  • What the client wants to meter. Is it just utilities or does environmental data need to be collected as well.
  • The size and complexity of the facility Different metering technologies suite different building types.
  • The frequency of data collection A real time data collection sensor requires a different network compared to a delayed data collection sensor.
  • permanent or temporary metering Deployment of a permanent infrastructure is more complex than a temporary one. A question also needs to be asked that once we have the data, will it change over time or remain the same?

Types of meters we install

  • Smart meters onto incoming electricity, gas or water
  • Sub metering at building, floor or zone levels by utility type
  • Plant and production equipment energy and condition monitoring
  • Environmental sensors to measure temperature, humidity, pressure, occupancy
  • Production data capture such as compressed air pressure & flow, heat, and production volume/flow

Smart Metering Case Study

Overview

Ecopare installed a range of electricity, gas and water sensors in an automotive paint booth. Data was collected in real time and delivered to our services via a GSM network. A 4 week cycle of data was collected and analysed for patterns.

The main components of the paint booth that were monitored included:

  • Electricity usage for both Incoming and exhaust Air Handling Units (AHU)
  • Gas feeds to incoming AHU systems
  • Water feeds to incoming AHU systems
  • Water flow from and to the central water ponds
  • Internal booth and outside temperature and humidity levels
Outcomes
  • Identification of waste energy in weekly start up procedure reducing energy cost by £52,000
  • Recommendation of further analysis to reduce booth air flow by 50% during breaks and stoppages
  • Business case evidence to drive installation of permanent metering across all 9 booths
  • Winner of Energy Award for metering project for the team
