Rolling out energy submetering programs

An increasing trend in real estate management is the centralization of all tasks related to metering and energy management processes. Organisations with dispersed portfolio of buildings find extremely useful the ability to centrally manage all operations remotely and in almost real-time. Installing large volumes of energy submeters in areas such as HVAC, lighting, electrical equipment and in various other electric loads provide the organisation the ability to review and evaluate their energy use enabling energy efficiency at scale, establish energy KPIs for particular loads as well as provide tennants with effective non-estimated energy billing. All sound great however rolling out energy submetering programs needs careful design and execution.

The timely roll-out and execution of smart energy submetering programs is a challenging process for all stakeholders involved. It requires technical, organizational and financial considerations that will enable all parties to successfully implement such programs in time. Meazon submeters require minimal time on-site to be installed. Split-core current transformers are easily clipped to the electric load cable. Shutting down the building’s power supply is not necessary thus minimising building occupants nuissance to none.

The Meazon microBizy (uBizy) tool enables commissioning and pairing of Meazon meters and controllers to a Meazon gateway with a single touch. Account management is cloud controlled and meters’ physical location information is uploaded to the cloud. Using the uBizy tool the installer can save time in setting up the ZigBee connectivity between meters and gateway and troubleshoot various parts of the installation such as correct set up of meters. Energy consumption is displayed in a per second level and can be used in cases where internet connection is not available.

Full control of the ZigBee network is possible, including, adding, removing, naming and monitoring devices, and configuring Meazon Bizy gateway advanced parameters. Ideal for medium to large scale meter roll outs, making large installations an easy task.
