Energy Management is a term that has a number of different meanings, but we’re mainly concerned with the one that relates to saving energy in businesses, public-sector/commercial, and homes:

Energy efficiencyWe provide a holistic approach saving energy and wastage by working closely with you to identify your energy needs and where improvements can be made to save energy. This includes recommendations to adjustments in business process and behavioural changes.

How we do this…

The following steps are your route to saving energy and becoming more environmentally friendly

1. Site survey and data monitoring including measurements at the main incoming electricity supply to the building and individual pieces of equipment.
2. Analysis of data to see where energy savings can be made.
3. Written report including recommendation of energy saving equipment and the savings that can be achieved.
4. Project management of systems installed and commissioned.

Power Saving Technology

The following lists some of the technologies/techniques used to provide energy savings.

Voltage Optimisation (VO) is an energy-saving technique for reducing the electricity supply to a site in order to limit losses in equipment. For example, mains supply voltage can vary from anything between 215V and 253V, meaning that in the worst case an appliance is being supplied with a voltage more than is necessary, as UK all equipment is designed to operate from 220V. A VO unit will provide a constant 220V supply to the building meaning that appliances will dissipate less wasted energy in the form of heat.

Voltage Stabilisation (VS) or voltage regulation offers increased stability to a site by ensuring the voltage is maintained at the required level even when there are fluctuations in the grid supply. This solution is better suited to more complex situations, solving electrical and engineering problems that may be inherent at a site.

AC drives are particularly good at saving energy when running pumps and fans. They are programmed to match the demand of the load reducing high current demand when not needed.
