An energy audit is often the first step in making your building more efficient. An audit can help you assess how much energy your building uses and evaluate what measures you can take to improve efficiency. Powersmiths provides extensive information about how to enhance energy efficiency and lower utility bills.
Measuring the carbon footprint of a product, service, site or whole company is a vital step towards reducing carbon emissions. It is often the first step towards developing a climate change and energy security strategy and towards meeting the growing expectations for carbon disclosure and reporting. Our carbon audit and energy assessment will involve identifying and calculating CO2 emissions caused by:
- Scope 1 (Direct) Emissions – Directly burning fossil fuels on-site as a result of the company’s operations
- Scope 2 (Indirect) Emissions – Purchased electricity
- Scope 3 (Emissions of Other Stakeholders) – This includes clients, employees, industry partners, etc.
Measurement & Verification
An essential element of certifying buildings for energy efficiency is validating building performance through measurement and verification (M&V). Powersmiths will offer a best practice methodology to:
- Measure & verify the results and impact from implementation of the energy management program in your organization
- Quantify energy savings from specific measures or projects
- Track performance improvements over time for the overall building
The M&V program will be designed to document normalized energy performance indicators and to validate energy savings.
Network Strategies and Best Practice Design
Powersmiths can design a networking strategy to incorporate your WOW platform with your existing IT infrastructure and maximize the value of your metering, data integration and/or WOW Kiosk hardware.
Metering Strategies and Best Practice Design
A good metering strategy and good metering within a building is an essential energy management tool. Most buildings have meters on their incoming supplies for billing purposes but these meters do not indicate where and why a building is performing badly. Sub-metering on major equipment types provides a means to identify where and when energy is being wasted. Powersmiths can assist with developing a metering strategy with new or existing buildings, leading to the project management or installation of metering and monitoring equipment.
Powersmiths WOW has been specifically design to communicate with your existing data collection infrastructure regardless of manufacturer to minimize deployment time and cost. If you are looking to implement a submetering program, Powersmiths has a suite of products and services available to fulfill your needs.
If your building currently lacks sufficient metering, Powersmiths can supply innovative low-cost rapid-installation Cyberhawk meters. Cyberhawk meters measure electricity systems and analog and digital inputs, including all water, gas, and renewables. Cyberhawk meters are available in standard and revenue grade models and all are certified WOW compliant and ready to integrate. To learn more about our metering options please click the button below.
