The Elements of Efficient Building Energy Management
The Elements of Efficient Building Energy Management
November 17, 2017

When you choose to install a building automation system, you are bringing a significant element of control to your daily operations. When it comes to building energy management, there are several aspects of this automation that give you the control needed to manage energy efficiency – to cut down costs while maintaining a sense of comfort and security for the building’s day-to-day operations.

Building energy management always involves these three steps:

  • Metering – One of the most important elements of managing something is knowing it. By installing meters and similar indicators, energy consumption can be easily tracked, and managers can identify potential areas of improvement.
  • Linking Control - This step involves upgrading and linking existing systems to your new energy management interface, to increase the system’s capacity for centralized control. You can increase general efficiency by linking access, egress, alarms, and even elevators to your new system to monitor. This enables you to manage energy efficiently when the unexpected happens, and to act quickly – for example, manually overriding the elevators in the event of a fire.
  • Monitoring - While these systems do allow for a great deal of automation, it is still important for managers to find a way of monitoring the processes overseen by their new management systems. Striking the ideal balance between effective operations and efficient savings can take a while to find, but with diligent and intelligent monitoring, the difference on both cost and comfort is clear.

Efficient building energy management can be a fairly daunting process, but its benefits far outweigh any initial difficulties it presents. Once each element of the system has been installed, the building will function through an intelligent and interconnected system that brings complete control to its managers, which makes a great many things much easier to accomplish in the long run, and will likely save money as well as a result of the increased efficiency.
