Wireless Building Energy Management Solutions - A Mini BMS Revolution
22 December 2011, News release from Greenologic Ltd
A huge number of buildings, especially small buildings will have absolutely no form of control or monitoring, mostly discouraged by prohibitive costs in installing traditional hard-wired solutions. The answer to this dilemma is a non-intrusive Wireless Solution.
Europe in general has a high-wage economy and the main cost of any building-services project is now labour. Building-management systems (BEMSs) are no exception, and typically 40% - 60% of the project cost is for wiring alone.
ZigBee Mesh technology provides high-quality solutions for transforming and replacing devices used in automation systems to transmit information wirelessly. Whether it is a new installation or an expansion of an old one, wireless ZigBee technology delivers reliable information transmission without the need of expensive cabling.
All building owners & operators are demanding better control and more information from their buildings. This is where ZigBee Mesh devices combined with a Web Enabled Mini BMS Systems addresses this problem and "plugs the gap" by allowing for extremely versatile wireless nodes to be incorporated into an existing building to enable enhanced control as well as remote monitoring at all levels.
"A Wireless Building Management System represents enormous opportunity, positive impacts on the environment and significant cost savings for many buildings around the world. It is probably the most significant advancement in the Building Automation industry for over a decade" - Billal Vindhani
This platform is also an ideal solution for buildings which have renewable systems installed, which have become increasingly popular i.e. Photovoltaic Systems. Giving you the ability to monitor exactly what you generate; understand exactly what you import and export to track energy income and expenditure.
The unique ability to automatically utilise your green energy at the point of generation is very important. This can be achieved through the use of intelligent control capability from the Wireless Building Management System (WBMS). These solutions maximising the efficiencies of your renewable installation, they ensure they are performing efficiently and further more reduce the ROI on these renewable energy plants.
Reducing energy costs are a major incentive for any building owner to adopt these types of systems. However there are also many other tangible and intangible benefits to operating your buildings efficiently. Enhanced comfort levels for building occupants, enabling individual's better control over their workspace environment.
This can result in increased employee productivity; studies have shown a comfortable working environment can have a substantial impact on staff's performance.
As we already know monitoring and control systems can typically produce respectable and quantifiable savings, opting for a reliable wire-less solution for low cost installation is a powerful incentive for many organisations and building owners. By installing a wireless mesh network, many buildings can reduce consumption, improve building performance and significantly reduced their energy costs.
Solutions can be rapidly deployed in a wide range of applications, providing industrial-grade performance with real-time access to your data via the Internet. For both new build and retrofit, wireless mesh installations are is expected to grow by leaps and bounds in the coming years; improving existing buildings performance, globally.
The opportunities have presented themselves as manufactures of these technologies have advanced the reliability and performance of ZigBee wireless mesh systems; but more importantly have made them affordable.
For companies ready to take action that energy problems offer an excellent opportunity; by managing facilities and energy as assets that can be invested in--with a short return on investment--is the smartest solution.
