Half-hourly Data : How macro-data analysis helped us save nearly £15k a year
Thanks to Pro Enviro's analysis of half-hourly data, it was revealed that the electrical consumption during non-operational hours was considerably higher than typically expected. Contributing issues were identified and subsequently rectified, these being, but not limited to:
- A number of lighting sensors were faulty and were not switching correctly.
- A number of air conditioning units were found to be operating beyond periods of occupancy, due to incorrect or missing scheduling within the controllers
- Opportunities to adopt and encourage improved behaviours by all staff members were also identified.
The measures result in a daily cost saving of £40.92 which extrapolates to £14,936 per annum, and would effectively reduce the sites Energy Usage Intensity (EUI) by 11%
