IoT Enabled Energy Management
Prioritizing building energy efficiency projects is essential to responsible fiscal management whether in the private sector or government. Understanding what systems within a building consume what types and amounts of energy is essential to identifying areas for efficiency improvement.
Imagine having a portfolio of buildings that consume millions of kWhs per year. A saving of 5%-10% to the overall energy consumption could be translated into hundreds of thousands or even millions of Euro savings per year. In order to achieve that objective someone needs to build a reliable energy monitoring system that tracks energy consumption in most important loads of each and every building, gather those data in an energy analytics service and then take business decisions on energy efficiency investments. This is where usually reality beats strategy since numerous problems are faced that make such type of projects financially not viable. Examples of such barriers are: large and expensive energy meters (including data logging) that prevent monitoring of many loads, wired connections that increase installation costs, closed and proprietary energy management systems locking the customer in one solution, lack of scalability in a cost efficient manner and finally lack of open data connectivity to the cloud.
Meazon puts an end to all these issues, creating an inflection point and acting as a catalyst to unleash energy efficiency investments. Meazon’s Bizy energy monitoring and control platform features wireless, easy to install and revolutionary small energy submeters, IOT enabled, with an open interface to the cloud and low Total Cost of Ownership. The platform is integrated to a Microsoft Azure cloud based energy analytics platform, providing meaningful energy management anywhere anytime.
Meazon solution provides the way to monitor and control thousands of unattended loads in an easy and cost efficient manner in legacy and new buildings enabling energy efficiency and operation optimizations investments, leading to substantial energy savings. Moreover, Meazon IoT enabled innovative load monitoring and control technology can enable the implementation of various new energy efficiency Utilities’ strategies such as demand-response.
