Watchman Energy Management from SAV Systems
Keeping an eye on energy use (can you afford not to?)
SAV Systems’ Watchman energy management service meets a growing need to track and analyse the energy usage in buildings, to help ensure that their energy systems are optimised and operating at maximum efficiency.
Watchman delivers AM&T (Automatic Monitoring and Targeting) requirements, and provides a 24/7 remote sentinel system.
Continuous monitoring of performance against either target, budget or benchmark helps to reduce energy consumption. Energy meter readings along with weather compensation and flow/return water temperatures are key Watchman focus points.
As well as providing simple, accurate and individually tailored bills, Watchman produces typical energy savings of between 20-50%, dramatically reducing carbon footprint and the cost of building services management.
Inclusion of aM&T within a building produces a better energy rating under Building Regulations Part L. This means that building owners can expect to benefit from higher re-sale values.
There are three levels of bespoke service, according to client requirements:
Watchman Energy Metering
This service is in line with CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) TM39 regarding Building Energy Metering, which states: “To reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions, building designers should incorporate sub-metering in new designs so that systems can be managed properly.” TM39 offers guidance and advice on of cost effective measurement and estimation options for sub-metering which are appropriate for energy monitoring .
Watchman Billing Service, providing bespoke tenant billing either monthly or quarterly .
Watchman AM&T, for tenant billing and alarmed surveillance over a building’s energy performance.
This service provides energy & carbon consumption reporting, using benchmark comparisons and degree day compensation.
CIBSE believe that at least 5-10% of the energy used in non-commercial buildings could be saved by actions taken as a result of fitting energy meters. This could be greatly increased by using an automatic monitoring system such as Watchman.
The potential for energy saving in apartment flats is considerable, and SAV Systems look forward to contributing to this through its Watchman energy management services.
