Buildings & Campuses
Building and facilities managers face increasing pressure to reduce the costs of operating medium and large commercial facilities, including airports, warehouses, hospitals, office buildings, public libraries, and university campuses. It is becoming increasingly critical to monitor and optimize energy usage to reduce overall utility costs. TeleSenseTM provides a dynamic and scalable solution for real-time energy monitoring and optimization.
How it works
- TeleSense continuously gathers current and voltage data from the building’s electrical distribution panel using current transformers and energy analyzers.
- Using LEEDS data and basic information about the facility, TeleSense software creates a simulated building model and monitors variations from the model by continuously comparing it to real-time data, allowing you to make smart decisions about pre-cooling, pre-heating, and shutting off AHUs.
- ProVolta™ analytics software uses TeleSense data and information on weather, variable energy rates, and demand-response pricing to generate precise reports and alerts that can reduce energy consumption by up to 30%.
ProVolta™ advanced analytics software converts raw data on energy consumption into actionable charts and graphs that illustrate the consumption pattern of the facility. HVAC, lighting, and plug- load usage data can be visualized on an hourly, daily, or monthly level in order to determine the largest sources of energy consumption.
TeleSense compares the hourly load demand to your building’s baseline load and identifies abnormal spikes or irregular behavior. Long-term reports can be generated to show the effects of energy saving programs you have implemented.
Real-time energy data is converted into detailed hourly HVAC, lighting, and plug load maps, which identify when these systems are using more energy than they should. This detailed data can be coupled with optimization platforms to actuate plugs and schedule HVAC and lighting systems, reducing phantom energy consumption and decreasing your monthly costs.
