In order to make an informed decision, it’s essential to have a clear understanding of your consumption patterns.  Measurement and Verification or M&V is a formal process used to construct an energy baseline. An energy baseline is the characterization of energy consumption given certain energy drivers (like lighting, HVAC etc.).

Once a baseline has been established, you can effectively evaluate your home or business. A direct comparison between your energy usage year-on-year is not an apples-to-apples comparison because production volumes, occupancy, climatic conditions etc. could differ widely between one year and the next.  Whether you are a home owner simply looking at taking control of your electricity consumption to reduce your electricity bill, or whether you are a commercial business trying to get a better understanding of your energy profile in your business you need to set a baseline to start from.   Simply having all this data and not understanding is also means nothing.  Let us assist you in assessing your home or business in finding cost effective ways to reduce your energy bill.

EFERGY - energy monitoring

In 1865, the English economist William Stanley Jevons observed, contrary to common intuition, that technological improvements in energy efficiency couldn’t be relied upon to reduce fuel consumption. Today this issue has proved to be still valid when it comes to energy efficiency and global energy demand continues to increase year after year despite improvements in efficient energy technologies.

While technology can bring improved energy efficiency, real and long-lasting energy usage reduction can only be achieved through behavioural change: we all need to change our habits to use less energy.

One effective way of helping change behaviour is the use of energy feedback as a tool for energy awareness. The principle is simple: you can’t save what you can’t see. Efergy developed consumer products to give homes access to meaningful, tangible and real-time energy.  These products are available for both online via your phone of PV or from the simplicity of a small screen.

eGauge:

Ellies Products - MV eGauge

Gauge is an affordable, flexible, secure, web-based electric energy and power meter that can measure up to 12 circuits on up to 3-phases (120V−480V, 50−60Hz). Use it to measure and record total building electrical consumption, solar, wind, consumption of individual circuits, such as appliances or geothermal system pumps, and motors. eGauge is best suited to provide:

  • Real time energy information
  • Renewable Energy monitoring
  • Measurement and Verification of essential equipment (M&V)
  • Operations and Maintenance of asset portfolio (O&M)
  • Data export via push or pull with an open data API
  • Lower energy cost
  • Lower emission associated with fossil fuel energy
  • Establish building energy benchmark and LEED points
  • Peak Demand analysis
  • Energy Efficiency projects and commissioning
