IoT and the rise of intelligent bureau
Historically, energy bureaus would simply review utilities metering data to identify inefficiencies in building and equipment performance and consumption. Now, with IoT, bureaus are intelligent - they provide far more insight, delivering cost savings, reducing consumption, and aiding legislative compliance.
Modern day intelligent bureaus can provide far more detailed insight than their predecessors. They bring together maintenance efficiencies, consumption monitoring, market intelligence, and procurement contract expertise, delivering more savings and benefits for businesses.
Intelligent bureaus benefit businesses three-fold, through cost savings to energy consumption reduction, and legislative compliance.
Previous methods of data analysis allowed bureau teams to deliver insights into how businesses could make changes to the way which they operated or managed their buildings/equipment in order to reduce utilities costs and consumption. Inefficiencies such as out-of-hours consumption, high base loads, or peaks in consumption would be identified. Whilst this would help lower bills, it didn’t go far enough.
UK businesses are becoming more aware of the ability to map and interpret utilities metering data against building and equipment performance to identify further inefficiencies in consumption and wasted costs.
Today’s intelligent bureau provides much more. Inefficiencies in equipment and building performance can be identified and delivered as actionable insights to maintenance teams.
Our market intelligence teams, data scientists, and building optimisation engineers work together as part of this intelligent bureau to provide our clients with an ideal solution. This collaborative approach helps reduce utility costs, while ensuring building and equipment efficiency. The aim of this way of working is to deliver timely, actionable insights to educate and quantify the business benefits through apps and cloud-based software platforms.
