Real-Time Data Management

Thursday, April 23, 2015

Purpose of the project:

Enhance the management of energy to improve operational performance of our assets and create opportunities for
customer engagement.

Approach:
Over the past two years we have developed an energy management system that will allow us to capture and report
real time energy data. Starting with a small subset of assets to pilot the system we have expanded it to capture all
eligible assets.

Results:
We are now in a position to more efficiently report our energy data across a number of industry initiatives and also for
our own reporting purposes. One of the other opportunities the system has presented us is to engage with our customers
on energy efficiency. Customers are at the heart of our business and are responsible for a significant amount
of the energy consumed in our assets. The system enables us to review performance with customers more transparently
and get them engaged with the operational performance of the asset they occupy.

“By providing the facility to benchmark and understand our energy usage we can now focus on initiatives to further drive down consumption. Monitoring and targeting data allows us to internally assess the relative merits of each project whilst enabling us to understand what works best with our particular buildings.” - John Gethin, Energy Manager
