• energy monitoring & targeting

To allow an Energy Manager to make decisions with regard to how a building is performing or where energy is being consumed within particular areas of the building requires the installation of sub metering across all utilities. Once the metering is in place then the Monitoring and Reporting of the metering data allows the Energy Manager to focus on areas of high consumption and put in place energy saving practices to reduce consumption and costs.

ATC Systems Limited can provide installation and commissioning of utility metering and offer Trend Energy Manager M&T software as our solution for the collation of the metering data which can hosted locally or managed off site and accessed via the internet.

We also offer software to provide Energy Display screens which are usually installed at prominent locations within the building which provide occupants or visitors information on the energy performance of the bulding or savings provided through renewable energy products.

If you would like any further information on these products then please contact our sales team.

                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Case Study

Newry and Mourne / Down District Council Metering Project

Background

In Early 2013 Newry & Mourne District Council and Down District Council commenced on the first phase of a joint venture to procure an Automated Meter Reading System that would provide them with accurate real time metering data from 21 different sites spread across both council districts that would monitor Electricity, Oil, Water and Biomass consumption.

ATC Systems Ltd were successful in winning the Tender process and set about providing a ‘Turn Key’ solution to monitor 138 meters, which included Survey, Design and all installation works including sub-contracting of Electrical and Mechanical contractors and Fiscal Meter Operators to provide the necessary pulse outputs.

This phase of works were completed in early 2014 and has now been extended with ongoing phases.

The System

Being a recognised Trend Technology Centre and building on the success of the Trend family of products ATC Systems Ltd provided ‘Trend Energy Manager’ as the software package through which the user could view and analyse the Metering Data, produce Cost Reports, set targets and ultimately take control of spiralling energy costs.

As well as utilising existing Trend Hardware on some of the sites, we also installed Trend IQ411 Outstations capable of reading up to 5 pulse meters and also providing 6 outputs making the system ‘Future Proof’ should the need arise to take control of the heating plant or lighting.

All controllers communicate via the Councils own IT Network which provides a quick and reliable method of transferring the data.

Customer Testimonial

I have been thoroughly impressed with ATC Systems Ltd throughout the project from design stage to installation to commissioning. It was particularly impressive that a project of this size, spread throughout 21 sites within 2 different councils, was managed so efficiently and effectively without any significant problems.

TEM is a very simple, user friendly package yet it is extremely effective. We have found it to be ideal for monitoring the energy usage of council buildings for oil, biomass, electricity and water.

With data collected at 15min intervals we have been able to identify areas of wastage, particularly at night and take action in cutting out wastage. By installing timer plugs on all our vending machines we have been able to note the reduction in electricity usage through the night.

Moving forward we will be able to show savings of any future projects to our buildings. As our data increases over time we will be capable of demonstrating how our buildings are performing in terms of energy by using degree day analysis.
