TELCA award winning Energy consultants STC Energy have come up with an alert system that could save you money and improve your energy efficiency!

They’ve created a profile alerts service which monitors consumption from HH and AMR electricity meters and data loggers. The system which uses their own in-house designed software, can monitor multi sites and report back immediately.

You simply set an energy use target and if you exceed it, the system lets you know where, when and by how much.

Alan Little Business Development Manager at STC said: “You’re going to save energy which will save you money by acting on these alerts. Not only do you get an accurate report, with our software which is linked to Google maps, you can see which site is using more energy so you can be specific too.”

Recommendations are also made if the consumption of energy used goes above the set targets consistently. The profile alerts service is an excellent way to gain value from electricity profile data to achieve energy savings at a low cost.

Analysis and waste

STC collects, validates and analyses the data for reporting. This data is usually collected on a day plus one basis. Quality is key. If data is found to be missing or estimated, they will directly investigate with the suppliers and data collectors.

They say the alerts are an intuitive way to combat energy waste and other exceptional consumption. By analysing your site’s historic consumption, the software can form a picture of each site’s usage. This enables the setting of accurate targets for each meter. These sites can then be automatically monitored for exceptions.

Any deviations found will trigger an email alert to a nominated site contact.  The report will automatically highlight which sites are over target.

STC says the system is very successful in identifying energy wastage directly and in suggesting behavioural changes that can be implemented to reduce consumption, for both small and large multi-site companies.
