Benefits of Energy Saving Systems for Commercial Buildings

Blog | November 7th, 2018

In commercial buildings, energy overheads cut profits. A product or service is making money. Naturally enough, there are losses, but there’s still a healthy profit margin at the end of the day. There’s no getting around it, though, those energy eating overheads hit company bottom lines hard. Fortunately, energy saving systems counterbalance power losses in commercial buildings.

Mounting an Energy Tracker 

Like the fitness devices that track runner activity, energy saving systems interface with the circuits that power commercial businesses. The modular hubs monitor all powered connections. They’re not core system components, the modules, but they are highly desirable supplementary subsystems, ones that can interface with even the plainest electrical circuit. Then, with the electrical circuits connected to the real-time system monitoring software, the energy management module identifies the worst energy-eating culprits and automatically takes action.

Monitor Commercial Businesses In Real Time 

Bluetooth-connected Apps and wireless hubs hook conventional electrical systems to modern digital brains. Translated from power-grid electrics to computer-graded functionality, the management of the various electrical systems and subsystems in a large commercial complex become a breeze. Only twenty years ago, this work would’ve been assigned to electrical relays and power transistors, so it was still a purely electrical solution, perhaps with an element of feedback electronics added to the mix. Today, contemporary smart interfaces shoulder the load. In here, real-time power management features flourish. Then, if the energy loss issues still stubbornly persist, the energy savings module activates an energy auditing feature.

Energy Auditing Functionality 

Dealing with a solid-state microprocessor and proprietary software instead of clunky electrical relays, a few taps of a touch-sensitive computer screen bring the system to life. Changes to electrical voltages and energy joules are captured by system sensors. If a power spike occurs, it’s recorded. It’s the same with energy losses, which are all stored in-system. Using the data, the software can be instructed to create graphs and time-based charts. The energy saving system basically charts graphs of the different electrical systems just by exercising this feature so that energy consumption trends can be identified and addressed. Assessed by an energy saving module, commercial building energy overheads are reduced.

Finally, many of the above features are automated. If an energy threshold is exceeded, it’s flagged on a Bluetooth-activated App. If cable losses and wiring problems are acting like a power plughole, then there are wireless solutions available to solve the issues. WiFi cameras are already transforming this part of the commercial buildings sector. Heating efficiency, lighting conservation and more, energy-saving systems can track, map and correct any excess expenditure.
