Unlock potential energy-savings.

Central heating set incorrectly, lights in the office left on, another leak undetected.

Access to consumption information is the foundation of building optimization. It’s important to be warned quickly if things go awry, e.g. the toilet is running. It’s also important to be able to collect consumption information over a longer period of time, allowing for valuable data comparison from year to year.

Monitoring

Gas consumption

Roughly 85% of building-related energy consumption can be traced back to heat production, i.e. heating and hot water. Monitor your heating system’s energy consumption, comparing these values with actual heating behavior and hot-water demand.

Is your heating system efficient? Where can settings or configurations be optimized? What proportion of gas costs can be explained by actual demand for heat? 

With the help of a handy meter-camera, we can upgrade your old gas meters to smart meters. 

Heat costs

To be able to optimally set or adjust any heating system, it’s essential that a building’s demand for heating and hot water be identified down to the hour. How long do radiators take to heat up in the morning? When can you turn off the heat in the evening? If you’re already using a heating control system, we can show you whether or not current settings are optimal.

Alert functions for energy consumption in empty real estate can also be configured, eliminating the situation in which radiators are accidentally left running after tenants have moved out. 

Hot and cold water

Particularly in industrial and commercial buildings, water consumption makes up a large portion of annual costs. In private residences, Germans, for example, consume 127 liters of tap water per day – only 3 of which are actually used for drinking and cooking. 

The potential for conservation is also particularly high for hot water. How much hot water should I be continuously providing? Can I reduce the temperature of the tap-water tank by two degrees? Which new warming system would work best for my building’s particular consumption patterns and needs?

Electricity

For combined heat and power units (CHP), photovoltaic systems, and in-building consumption

There are many ways to increase the rate at which self-produced energy is consumed over other types. At which angle should the photovoltaic system be positioned? When does the CHP start up in the morning? Does it make sense to add a battery storage unit to my PV system?

Our intelligent electricity meters read out values every 2 seconds, providing a precise and comprehensive picture of electricity production and overall consumption. Production and consumption values are then compared in an easy-to-read graphic, making adjustments for better production-consumption agreement possible.

Alert feature

Tap-water monitoring can cut costs you didn’t even know existed. Costs incurred by water damage from in-building supply totaled around 2.3 billion euros in Germany in 2015, with this trend only increasing. On average, a leak appears every 30 seconds.

In processing data from cold and hot water meters, our MGM application is able to automatically detect and alert you of any leaks.

The conditions for the alert’s functionality can be fully configured in detail: for example, the specified timeframe, readout interval, or a layer of tolerance. These criteria are grouped into the following 3 types:

Visualization of critical segment

  • Data comparison

    Example: defective site or system

    If the standard temperature falls below a critical range, an alert is immediately issued. The system can also be restarted via remote access as an optional feature. 

  • Consumption warning

    Example: lighting in commercial property left on accidentally

    If energy consumption in the time frame between 22:00 and 8:00 is detected, on-site security personnel is immediately informed.

  • Leak

    Example: toilet running

    If an identical consumption pattern of more than 3 liters is detected within a specific measurement interval, a warning is automatically sent.

Optimize and regulate

Maintenance and control

With sensor data, you can monitor your heating systems around the clock and be alerted to problems as soon as they occur. Our multi-functional gateways can also be made available with relay technology, allowing for remote control of sites and systems via our Meter Gateway Manager (MGM) application. Just by restarting a central-heating boiler, up to 30% of service trips can be avoided.

The smart heating system

The topic of heat energy will gain in importance in the coming years, particularly as CO2 emissions become more costly on many levels. Together with Fraunhofer IOSB and other partners, we’re developing a dynamic optimization module for activation and control of different heat producing systems on a supply and demand basis. This project will be implemented for individual buildings as well as neighborhoods. The aim is to regulate gas heaters, heat pumps, CHPs, or PV systems by cost or CO2 emissions, integrating renewable heat-production systems and energy producers in a way that optimally balances cost and output. What’s special about the dynOpt Energiemanager project is that not only heat production will be monitored, but also demand for heating by way of meters, sensors, and weather data per predictive algorithms.
