How Does it Work?
The Energy Surveillance System (ESS) is a powerful energy monitoring system that is web based and allows you to compare energy usage by equipment type, store location, fuel type or time of day. The web based energy monitoring software allows remote access to the crucial data for energy savings in different locations. The system is built to monitor up to 17 sub-loads per module within a facility to better detect energy leaks, provide benchmark reports, bill verification, and be alerted when abnormal energy usage occurs.
What Can Be Monitored?
Not only are electrical sub-loads monitored but as well propane/natural gas, oil, and water consumption for the facility. The consumption data can be compared to the utility bill for bill verification. As well, you have better control of determining the time of day the most usage has occurred and implement equipment or procedures to reduce the usage.
Advanced Energy Reporting
Advanced reports allow comparisons between different locations and monitored loads. This way the facility can be optimized to meet a corporate standard for facility. The reporting engine has been built to allow any type of reporting condition. You think it – E.S.S will crunch it. Reports can be easily exported to excel or pdf.
Graphs & Charts
Graphing capabilities provide information such as daily, monthly, yearly trends and can be easy glanced over using various line chart, bar, or pie. The ESS provides a graph overly to view different data over the same window for quick comparisons. A load profile of one store can be compared with another or benchmarking graph and report can be viewed when comparing the performance of new equipment.
ESS Weather kWh Prediction
Weather based energy prediction has been included to accurately predict the facilities kW usage 2 hours in advance. The advantage is that you will only be alerted when energy usage is abnormal. As well, with ESS Weather you can compare one month’s kWh usage with another month and accurately determine the kWh usage based on humidity and temperature. No more guessing!
Notification & Alerts!
The ESS energy monitoring software is built to provide only the information required since facility energy managers and financial officers are focused on core responsibilities. Alerts and notifications can be setup to notify you via email if loads are not running, if a load exceeds kWh usage, if loads are running outside operating hours, or if a failure occurred.
Server & SQL Database
The ESS has a dedicated server installed at the head-office facility that runs the EG WatchNet web interface. The server can communicate with over 200 locations. Having a system on site ensures security for bank facilities and government institutions as well as corporations. All data is stored on the dedicated server on SQL 2008 database to ensure the fastest data crunching and can be easily interfaced with SAP or other enterprise accounting management system to provide necessary data.
Demand Control Add-on
ESS is capable of advanced demand control using the DemandMiser module. The system will automatically detect a demand peak and load shed up to 8 loads through cycle or step process. Custom load limits can be set for each month and will automatically adjust the load limit if more energy is needed for the building. Click here for more information.
