Case Study Three
An industrial facility wanted to improve the energy efficiency of its buildings and manufacturing processes. At that time, only one utility meter existed at the facility, and there was no capability to monitor real-time electricity use or correlate the energy use with activities in the facility.
Seldera installed its Continuous Audit and Behavior Modification (Consumption Profiling) tier wireless sensing and actuation network to provide visibility into consumption and to exploit savings opportunities. A wireless network of electric meters and sensors was deployed across the facility to measure and disaggregate electrical loads. A set of sensors on the same network simultaneously measured the temperature, humidity, and occupancy of the building.
Today, the facility’s management and employees use Seldera’s Web portal to monitor the consumption of their operations and to make decisions on operation and infrastructure changes. The portal allows them to study the patterns and magnitudes of electric loads and helps them make decisions on how to improve performance while reducing operating costs.
