Our Mission

To provide our customers with affordable Energy Monitoring & Targeting software. No individual, organization or company should be able to say they cannot afford to save energy. We aim to help each company or organisation to have the ability to cut waste and put the money saved back into the profits or reduce their budget whichever is appropriate.

How Can Energy Monitoring Save Me Money ?

The companies who provide the billing metering for your organisation will on request provide a secondary output from the meters in the form of a switch. Every time the switch operates it represents a unit of energy used. By wiring the switch to a computer our Eco Warrior software can monitor second by second the energy you consume and log it on a computer screen in the form of graphs. You can also add your own private or sub meters no matter what the energy type to the system in the same way. The graphs can show energy used and what time it was used each day, week, month and year. By monitoring energy and resources the system user can see when and where money  is being wasted. Our studies of numerous commercial buildings have often shown 50% or more energy is consumed when the building is closed. A similar story can be found on industrial premises with regards to machines on standby  when they should be off.  The monitoring system is used to expose waste occuring now and keep a check that it does not return at a later date. The money saved goes right back to the user in the form of improved profit and efficiency and/or reduced annual costs.

When using the monitoring system customers can find out if   :-

bullet  They have been overcharged by their suppliers for energy or resources.
bullet

Electrical appliances and machines are being left on when they should be off.

bullet

Their Building Energy Management System is not operating as they thought.

bullet

They have expensive water leaks that show no obvious visual signs.

The system can reassure customers that all is well and alert them when it is not. See the examples below.

Electricity Example

The Chart to the left shows the electricity used each day as a bar. The Red bar is the energy used when the building is open. The Grey bar is the energy used when the building should be closed and using little or no energy. As can be seen energy and therefore money is being wasted each night and every Saturday and Sunday. This data is from a real site and is typical of what the system finds .

Gas Example.

This bar chart shows an eight day view starting Monday to Monday of the gas energy used. Each bar represents the energy used in a 30 minute period. The blank days are Saturday and Sunday. They will not be blank if the BEMS systems fails to turn off the boiler over week-ends. The optimum start on the BEMS system was the problem for this customer and it is clearly not operating correctly. The boiler is coming on just after midnight each day when it should be starting at about 7:30am (the green bars) in these conditions. The gas used also shows the building is up to temperature within 30 minutes ! and the heating continues after 4pm (the red bars) A waste of 40 to 50 percent in this real building example.

Water Example.

This Bar Chart shows an eight day view of water consumption  again Monday to Monday in 30 minute periods. Water can be clearly seen to be used 24 hours a day and over the weekends when the building is closed. No water should be used at early morning or at night weekdays and no water should be used at all over the weekends. This graph showed the site had a major water leak even though no pools of water could be found. The leak was into a drain which was not visible to staff.  On a number of occasions we have realised savings of 80% on water used when meter readings failed to highlight any problem.
